All of the poems in this book are great examples of what not to say. This collection of poetry is a reflection of unfiltered thoughts about people, life's circumstances, and relationships, on a bad day. This book is refreshingly boldly honest, hilarious and a bit troubling. Remy mocks self absorbed people in, "Pride Monster, Do What You Have To Do, Get Out Of My Seat, I'm Your Frienemy." This book is not for those who deny ever having a bad day or toxic people in your life. This is revenge poetry at it's best!More

Extra Star Bercause I Feel Badly For The Author
Seriously?: 102 poems from an agitated state
The opening to this 50 minutes collection of poems is quite apparent in what she is about to do. She has written a poem about everyone who has ever "done wrong" to her [perceived or real.]
The summary claims this is a collection of things not to say. Unless it is tongue-in-cheek I feel very badly that the author has had these experiences. It seems she cannot get along with anyone.
I didn't find any humor in it and I'm pretty easily amused. It was just over an hour of - whining isn't the right word – grumbling about people from her past.
If this is her existence or even if she has risen above what these poems portray, I would say she is seriously unfortunate and perhaps should look within.
Each poem was melodious and easily this is not the art of a great genius… I am not a poetry's a snob, however I am certain that I could come up with 102 poems about people I know that would sound very much like these but with some agitation and some happiness.
The narrator, Barbara Colton did a good job, though the material didn't seem to be especially challenging. I will look for other work by her but not the author.
*I was given a copy of this book to listen to in exchange for my opinion, thoughts and this review.*
Notes: There may have been at cuss word or two, nothing to speak of
Credit worthy/$: Not for me not anytime not anyway. It is just over an hour long and at this writing $6.95
