Although I loved quite a few of the poems, I was put off by the format of the book. I get the idea of a “literary mixtape” but I am not convinced that this was the best way to pull it off, or even if it can be pulled off effectively. For me, the best part of reading an anthology or compilation is to discover new voices which I can then go out and explore and enjoy separate and apart from the original anthology. This book makes that task exceedingly difficult because there is no table of contents, index, or biographies about the contributors. In order to identify the authors of my favorite poems, I had to first find the list of poets and poems which is buried in the back of the book. I then had to go page by page, hand numbering each poem on the list in order to identify my favorite poems, hoping that they were all in sequential order. I then had to Google the authors to find information about them. This was cumbersome, tedious, time-consuming and it should not have been unnecessary. I am left wondering why this couldn’t have been a regular anthology or compilation. Sometimes experimentation leaves much to be desired.

I thought this book was all original work. However, after receiving it, I noted that it was Saul Williams' compilation piece. I bought it as a gift for my then boyfriend who was a huge fan, and he enjoyed it a lot. There are a variety of somewhat cohesive poetry pieces from various poets compiled into one project. The book came with a nice bookmark too which was a plus.
