↠´ City of Rain Æ Download by ✓ Alvin Pang Upon reading the first few poems in books Actually, I have no doubt that this book is one of the best book of poems I have ever read The storytelling in each poem takes you to a certain maturity of the author as he relates some issues in the most creative and artistic of ways A must have.
Never read local writers before this Picked this up because some of the poems I flicked through were pretty, had these very nice phrases I thought would spark something in my head It was an alright read can t givethan three stars though, probably because I have a very strong preference for prose Poetry gives me a woozy feeling in my head, one I can t decide if I like or not.
god like like i cannot emphasize how much i love this book of pomes out of the three books that i m doing for my research paper, this is my favourite pang s voice is strong, clear and intelligent if someone asked me to explain singapore to them in poetry, this might be the volume i would use.
