Some poets speak truth; others speak beauty. I would like to think Karin Cox does a little bit of both. There's a feeling of timelessness to her writing. Growth is neither modern nor dated in that sense. It is not an "edgy" collection and it will not make you think so much about the world as it will yourself. The description and metaphor stood out most to me. Cox has an incredible vocabulary and imagination that will leave you breathless.

Wow, what a wonderful collection of poetry this is. I enjoyed reading this very much, although some of the poems seem to be so personal I cannot quite grasp what they are about. But some of them really struck a chord with me. The way you never truly let go of an ex-lover in your heart in 'Old Photo'. The way the poet reminds us of our smallness and life cut short in 'Immortality.' The sensual way she describes making love in 'Carnivorous'. I highly recommend this poetry book!

A book of wonderful poetry with lively themes. A little heavy on the relationship side, but from a fresh perspective and not devolving into too much sensuality. I especially liked some of the unique phraseology employed. Karin has a way with words and at least once in almost every poem I came across a line or couple lines that I just went "Wow! Love the way that was worded." I can always tell a good poem (personally) because I am compelled to read it again, perhaps several times before moving on. Most of the poems in this book were good enough to compel me to read again. This is a worthy book of poetry. Enjoy it.

Karin Cox's Growth is a contemporary, eclectic collection of 30 poems that range in theme from scenes of everyday life, work, and England to Italian market shopping, childhood and memories of lovers. Cox is able to paint colourful images using descriptive language and plays on sound. Her short, powerful stanzas on nature and remembered love were among the most poignant: "Adriatic" and "Summer Picnic" were among my favorites of the collection. The sensuality in "Carnivorous" also made it a standout. The poem that will speak most directly to the experience readers will have with Cox's writing, and worth quoting, is this one:

Great poetry. My favorite of the poems was entitled 'Immortality'. This collection holds many strong poems. A few of which are memorable like 'Immortality' and 'The Adriatic'. Karin Cox is a strong poet and I hope to read more of her work.

This book was okay. I got it for free off of Amazon so I wasn't expecting too much. While it was a decently enjoyable book for free, I don't think I would have bought it. Some poems were more personal, others more fun. I think that the rhyming was creative in spots and sounded forced in others. The alliteration (repetition of sounds) also seemed very forced to me. Because of this, I was often brought out of the poem and couldn't connect with it. My favorite lines were in the poem "Carnivorous," and they were, "With lolling tongues and ragged breath, / we recreate ourselves, succumb to death." However, I didn't find those lines redeeming enough to lift my opinion of the rest of the book.

This collection is one of transition and change. The author's talent is full-grown and this allows her to tell us a series of small stories about a time in her life when she was growing and maturing. These poems form more than a simple exercise in coming-of-age. There is reflection here and as much darkness as light because, sometimes, change does not lead to growth but to dead-ends, regrets and lost opportunities. I can imagine having been told these poems as part of a conversation that ran well into the night with a friend for life. Take this collection out for a coffee, black with sugar, and I promise you will enjoy what awaits you.

Some good lines scattered throughout this collection of poetry, but overall I found the collection uninteresting. Too many poems about some unnamed lover; these were dull and uninspiring. This was an okay collection of poetry for a free ebook. Glad I did not pay money for it, though.
