4.0 out of 5 stars Poetry with a difference March 5, 2011
By Lottie
Format:Kindle Edition
The poet obviously thinks very deeply; it is almost like intruding on some very private moments in this person's life. I love the natural flow of the poetry, the sometimes dark side and then the day-to-day more comical side of life. In summary a series of thought provoking poetry which I enjoyed reading very much. See what you think.............

5.0 out of 5 stars Varied Collection February 28, 2011
By woulfe
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an interesting collection of poems.From funny to deep and disturbing. The author has obviously done some deep self exploration, and like the rest of us deeply moved by some of the events heard in the news. My personal favourites are Life in Bags and My Place. From light and easy reading to deep and thought provoking. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and varied exploration of the human condition! February 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This collection of works portrays a full range of emotion, and explores many aspects of the nature of the human condition. At times I found myself laughing out loud, cringing with embarrassment, while others evoked feelings of sadness, despair, fear and joy. The poet has laid his soul on canvas for us to explore, and shows an acute awareness of experience which arouses kindred emotions in the reader. If poetry is designed to evoke emotional responses in the reader, this collection has it all. Highly recommended!

More About the Author

Andy was born and grew up in Bedfordshire in the UK. He was a dreamy child who had as many imaginary adventures as he did real ones in the river and fields near his family home. Many summer days were spent building rafts (that usually sunk) and floating down the river with his friends. When it rained, he would spend hours daydreaming about hidden doorways to underground worlds where strange creatures lived.

After twenty years as an engineer, he wanted to spend more time on enjoyable and creative pursuits, and now writes horror stories, teaches classical guitar, is a keen amateur ornithologist and enjoys woodwork.

A note from the author.
Like most authors, I like to hear what readers think of my books. I don't write to earn a living, it's purely the enjoyment of writing and hearing that you have enjoyed reading them. So if you have an opinion and the time, I would appreciate your comments. You can leave them on Goodreads, Facebook, Google+ or email me directly through my website.

I'd love to hear from you.

Andy Downs
