    One thought on “The Years Distilled: Verses”

    1. I was given this book by a friend for my honest opinion. I have read several of this author's great short fiction and novels but was still apprehensive about the idea of reading poetry by anyone. Curiosity in the end got the better of me and what I found was fortunately a pleasant surprise. Whether these verses are inner dialogue with or about the author's surroundings (coffee places, diners or the buzz of a city), a love letter or something comparable to a contract with his girlfriend about the [...]

    2. Simply Amazing.The work contined in this book is breathtaking, sad, funny, bitter, and true. I grudgingly bought a copy on a raving recommendation from a friend, because I simply do not regularly buy books from authors I don't know. I was so impressed that I have now bought two more copies to give as gifts. There is not enough good to say about this book. I hope that eveyone can read this book and let it touch them like it has touched me.

    3. Didn't see this one coming. I should read more about the books I'm ordering before I buy them. I was a little put off at first, but that faded fast. I absolutely loved it. It's not my style, but it's all my heart and mind.

    4. I am the first to admit that I absolutely HATE poetry (hell im probably one of the fewer people who hate romeo and juliet) but i loved this collection. Dark, some erotic, and filled with angst (but not of the sparkly vampire variety). Definitely worth the read.

    5. Poetry is cool, but it's not one of my favorite genres. Sharpe's poetry stands alone. It's raw, it's real, it's emotional, and it's deep, written from the heart.

    6. There is a lot of emotion and just raw real life that shines through these poems. A good, if not always easy, read. A must for any poetry fan.
