Book Review: Voice of the Soul by Shreyans Kanswa

BLURB

How does it feel to lie just by yourself and delve into the silence. The silence that is a path to deeper self, a self that is unexplored. That same unexplored self can also be regarded as the soul.

While the time ticks on the clock, a bond with your soul is timeless. Such metaphors are rendered powerless when a conversation is created with oneself.

These poems mean more than just words, they scream soulfulness. It is rather weird that we go looking for answers outside when all that we have to do is seek deeper within ourselves. The poems are experiences that the poet shares with the world, and these experiences are nothing fancy- they are all moments that the poet experiences with himself. They are questions risen from inquisitiveness and introspection.

The cover is beautifully designed. It has a portrait of a bird on the top and a guy at the bottom of the cover.

The title is very apt for the poems as the poems range from different parts of life.

I feel the blurb is good. But it would have been better if it could capture the essence of the poems.

The vocabulary used is really good, it helped me learn some new words.

The poems are written so well that any reader can vividly imagine and feel the emotions in which the poems are written.

What I loved about the poems are that the poems talk about life and nature together.

Overall it is a beautiful book of poems written very well. Looking forward to read more such poems in future.
