I have, ever since, a penchant on books that somehow reflect our everyday mundane lives, but also a lot of fun at the same time. And this is known to my family and friends, so it didn’t come as a surprise when my friend gifted me this book, “Hurry, Hurry, My Children” by Labertha D. McCormick. The author’s note alone already captured my interest and I found myself flipping and smiling one page to another.
The book gained a five-star rating from D.A.M, a reviewer, who said, "The poetic phrases are candid, swift, engaging, profound, and colorful." Another reviewer, M. Dwyer, said, "The content of the poems has strong, literary merit for many readers. The creativity and the skill of the author shine through loud and bright." According to Imani, the book's primary purpose is not to show readers how she plays with words in her poems but to mainly promote healing of a person's soul in one way or another.
It is a collection of poems that somehow portrays life’s struggles, achievements, confessions, realizations, and adventures. Each poem is exquisitely written and richly detailed with its own unique story, emotions, and lessons. The stories are candid, entertaining, enigmatic, funny, and a lot more that will surely hold your attention.
This book had me engrossed from page one to last with its riveting and engaging poems. The author’s writing has very well roused my feelings, deepen my understanding of life, and made me laugh. This book will undoubtedly bring you life lessons even without the experience. A book that left me better than I was before reading it. I enjoyed it a lot. I highly recommended it!
