Robert Seatter – The Book of Snow | Review

The Book of snow is a collection of poetry by Robert Seatter. It is his fourth poetry collection. The previous ones are Travelling to the Fish Orchards,On the Beach with Chet Baker, and Writing King Kong.51kla6g4ael-_sx258_bo1204203200_

The Book of Snow consists of thirty-eight poems about snow, variating from the grey, grim snow to the pure and beautiful kind.

Robert Seatter explains his relationship through the description of snow, leading us through all the stages of it by explaining all kind of snow. All the poems are written and sound quite differently because of feeling that is the main motif in it.

I personally did not quite like The Book of Snow poetry collection, I find it quite monotonous and even kind of dragged out. I did not feel the feeling the poems were insinuating and had a hard time connecting with the images presented.
The book was illustrated by Jessica Palmer. I find the illustrations were quite nice, but I cannot say I was blown away.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
