Very interesting and fun read if you love poetry, or even if you are new to the art.

Gadfly will send you on a journey of friendship, passion and heartbreak - sometimes within the same poem.

I never though 'love' could be written about in so many different ways, and each way is just amazing.

Ventricle, Atrium is panty-dropping poetry at its finest. Gentle, fast and hard, Gabriel Gadfly seduces his readers by teasing them with the smallest, most intimate moments of relationships: a first kiss, a knowing look, a long goodbye. Page after page, he lays his words down softly, whispering sweet nothings and harsh realities of love as it lingers in our lives. Nothing is perfect, nothing is sacred; love both conquers and destroys in his second book, a sharp contrast to his debut book of war poetry, Bone Fragments. We are taken from the battlefield to the bedroom, from the fox hole to the rabbit hole of romance and heartbreak ("Fossils"), from agony to ecstasy ("Throb"). And just when we are begging for more in Ventricle, Atrium's last few pages, Gadfly leaves us breathless in a climax with his poem "Monochrome." Let this not be a one-time fling, Gabriel. My heart breaks and beats faster at the thought.

Thankfully, the wait is made more bearable with fresh content on his website, [...].

I'm not a real poetry-head, so I couldn't tell you too much in comparison to other poets, but I really did enjoy this book. I found I finished it much too quickly, but it gave me a chance to go back and read it again (something I very rarely do). There are a few poems I love more than others, but that is expected, as it is art! Definitely a good read. Can't go wrong for 99 cents.

Format: Paperback
Another volume of honest and poignant poetry. He holds nothing back. The smallest details and mundane rituals have been celebrated as much as the first kiss or the first coupling. There is much here to cause fond memories to resurface. There is also much to cause fears to resurface. Read with caution because your emotions will be engaged.

If you love poetry, get this book and all of Gabriel Gadfly's books. I had the privilege to meet him in person, too. Very interesting and fun read if you love poetry, or even if you are new to the art.
