Given this is McGackin's freshman piece, there are definitely things that don't work (a few obviously-written-for-class pieces, notably a riff on "Two Roads diverged.." which works as a funny comparison piece, but doesn't work as much else -- but then there are pieces like "Morning Sex" and "I'll take 'crazy bitches' for $200, Alex" which make you laugh and think all at once. He also does *wonders* with Haiku (and combined-haiku, as in "Haikougar" - which also works as a pun... :D ).
I suspect the 1-star reviewers like their poetry stuffier; ie, less sex, less fun, and more like all the convoluted flower-related poetry out in the marketplace (see the bonus poems after the Acknowledgement sections for more on this..) .. or perhaps they're offended by all the sex.
What I'm saying is, you'll love this, or you'll hate it - but you won't be ambivalent, and that's what's really awesome. Looking forward to the next book.
... oh, and seriously: Awesome!
