This book ripped my heart out, massaged it and broke it apart, then handed it back to me softer. I would re-read this book immediately if there weren't so many other books out there that I can't wait to get my hands on. I already miss Little Dog, Lan, Rose, and Trevor

This was a beautifully written book and the audiobook narration was just full of emotion.

Because of the skilled writing, a few descriptions come off as very graphic. Overall, a very good book.

3.5 rounded to 4. Unfortunately, I feel like poetry is wasted on me, but I can appreciate the medium for processing grief on death of his mother and feeling through other complicated personal relationships.

Overdue, so a quick read for me with little time to dwell on it.
