An Amazon Best Book of October 2017: Kaur deftly sidesteps and then punts the stereotypical sophomore slump of bestselling authors, offering a subtle yet powerful volume of poetry to her readers who have clamored for more since the debut of Milk & Honey. Split into five movements—wilting, falling, rooting, rising, blooming—Kaur’s poems glide up from the depths of heartbreak and hurt to embrace the strength and joy that can flower on the other side of hardship. Kaur workshops many of her poems through live readings, and the dedication to her craft vibrates through every phrase. Those who pressed Milk & Honey into the hands of their friends will exult in The Sun and Her Flowers, and Kaur’s expanded wisdom and scope should reel in new readers who will find much that resonates. —Adrian Liang, The Amazon Book Review

The only thing I did notice was if you are an advid reader like myself, you probably picked up a lot of similarity from other poets and works. I think we all strive for originality but sometimes it falls short.
I will saw that Rupi Kaur is not for everyone, I know people who worships the ground she walks on and other who loathe her for her writing style.
But that’s the thing about poetry, it doesn’t need to be perfect to be power.
I don’t know what all goes into product quality control, but I’m also not in charge of a multi-billion dollar corporation. This is ridiculous.
I saw this book at Barnes & Noble one afternoon and decided I wanted to buy it, but knew I could probably find a deal on Amazon, so ordered it here instead. What I received is very clearly some kind of counterfeit copy, as if someone poorly scanned the entire book and printed it cheaply somewhere else.
Firstly, I remember holding the book in Barnes & Noble and it very clearly had a textured cover. This one is smooth. The book in the store was around 4x6 inches. This was at least 5x7, maybe bigger. Perhaps the most damning evidence was the fact that it was so poorly printed. If you know anything about digital imaging, it looks as if the cover was scanned in at like 25 ppi, as opposed to the industry standard of 240-300. The pages were offset as well. The author’s name does not appear at the top, instead the poems are aligned with the top of the page which is not only incorrect, but displeasing to the eye.
TL;DR - just buy a physical copy at a bookstore so you can be sure you’re getting the real thing, because what I got was clearly a counterfeit in every way.
First off, the cover felt different. It definitely wasn't the rough, textured cover it was supposed to be.
Secondly, the print on the pages was ALL off. It was sized incorrectly, as if somebody had tried to scan it and print it themselves. Also, the lettering was oddly gray and faded instead of black.
I love Amazon, but this book is wildly different than how it's supposed to be. Anybody who even glanced at it would have been able to tell. They need to do some sort of quality control.
I got a refund and I'm taking my money to Barnes & Noble, even if it is more expensive. This copy was horrible and wasn't worth the convenience for something so messed up.
