I found Mr. Wong’s writing in this book to be quite raw as I sensed his unwillingness to be intimidated by certain standards of the literary world as what’s appropriate to write about and what’s not. While, given the wide variety of genres and books I’ve read/rewrite nothing really shocks me when it comes to the written, some who read this book might be taken back with the coarse language used by this author; so be forewarned.
After reading some of the pieces contained in this book, the reader’s mind will want to stop and contemplate as to what it has just read; primarily due to all of the possibilities those words have created.
For having written a thought provoking endeavor without pulling any punches
A Narcissist Writes Letters to Himself is less of poems and more of ranting to himself. In this segment, Woodsman, A Shrill Shriek Follows Me and Inner Peace will definitely make you laugh. Blackbeard, Seeking Insurance, Uncovers the Pirate Paradox will seem to be vague until you reach the end of it where you will understand the whole poem, or not. The language in this segment of the book might be offensive to many people, but let’s just assume that it is not for everybody.
The Second Person has one long poem called Episode 1: Hello, Apprentice. Well, it is more of a short story than a poem. The author/poet has tried to make it reek of sarcasm, but it isn’t.
Tin Lion is actually funny and has enough sarcasm to make it funny. Orthodox Christians, please stay away from this segment. It is for your own good. At the end of this segment as well as the book, the author mentions in the footnote “When reviewing this book, please make sure you mention that these are the literal views and opinions of every single godforsaken San Franciscan and anyone affiliated with said San Franciscan. I speak for them now.” This is very much questionable.
This book is good for one-time read.
Before i received this book there was a warning that it was purely for fun and good humor. That said, it was great in the fact it definitely made me laugh! It also made me cringe at the way he was able to describe things that honestly were a little brutal. Not in the sense that it was badly done, but that he was able to put these plans,or dialogue into a way that was very easy to believe. I almost felt like i was reading the writings of someone i might see featured in the news years down the road for some very weird and violent crime. But having said all of that it was definitely a pleasure to have read even the things that made me cringe.
