    The Fix Kindle è ¸ ePUB santosangeles.co The Fix MOBIThat was uick which I expected as it's not even a hundred pages The Fix is a collection of poems I found as utterly engaging Once you read a poem you can't help but be excited or wonder what the poet will talk about in the next poem All the poems describe moments from the poets's life but they were vividly but creatively described that only a good poet can do The poet's language was lyrical musical but sharp Lisa Wells certainly not only proves she's a poet but also that her words her beautiful complex words can hurt and strike deep too as they sp

    The Fix Kindle è ¸ ePUB santosangeles.co The Fix MOBII love poetry and when I came across Lisa Well's new poetry collection I knew I had to read itThe poems are of different topics The flow is also different from poem to poem Sometimes it's slow and smooth languid in its flow Other times it's fast and wild I could visualise the scenes the poet describes through her poem It did take me some time to truly understand what she was trying to speak of but that's the beauty of poetry as you keep reading them again and again the meaning and the thoughts become clear eventually

    The Fix Kindle è ¸ ePUB santosangeles.co The Fix MOBIThis collection of poetry takes the everyday and turns it on its head exploring from every angle I enjoyed this collection because it takes a bit of a risk when it comes to word choice and description putting in words and phrases that uickly let you understand that you don't know where the next line will be going Although it is a uick read it is definitely something that will linger with you awhile Book provided by NetGalley
