An emotional collection of poems and short stories,
This review is from: Storm of Roses: A Compilation of Poetry and Short Stories (Paperback)
E. Tara Scurry wrote several very emotional poems and short stories in this compilation book. Her work is very moving, expressing a wide range of emotions: devotion, adoration, love, frustration, anger, hatred, etc.
The book is divided into seven chapters, each dealing with a different theme. The first theme is spirituality and is composed by poems dedicated to religion. The next five chapters contain poetry dealing with lots of deep emotions and thoughts. The author concludes with a set of short stories with hidden messages.
Although the writing is simple and easy to follow, the author conveys many messages in her work. For example, the poem `The Circle' questions human consumption of meat and how it affects our bodies. As a vegetarian, I was very pleased to read it. I also liked the story `Tattoo' as it deals with how people perceive body art and how it affects us. I found it original that Tara also included a bonus piece which is a story she wrote in first grade.
Overall, the book is insightful, meaningful and very emotional. It is a nice read.
