‘Voyages Volume I – A Collection of Poetry‘ is spread across 91 pages. We get to see the journey of Author Debjeet as a writer from 2011, at the age of fourteen, to 2018, at the age of twenty-one, in these poems, hence the name ‘Voyages Volume I – A Collection of Poetry’.
The book has a collection of Forty(40) poems. Each poetry resonates with readers and each poetry has a different theme and speaks of emotions unspoken: from the loneliness of aching heart to romance to heartbreak to the reflection if humanity.
‘Voyages Volume I – A Collection of Poetry’ is coming of age experience of Debjeet, which every reader can connect to especially young readers.
My Favourites are:
- Prayers Alive in Hope
- My Balloon Girl
- Some Moments at the train station
- Oneness in pages
- Wings to Swing
- Earth, Soul & the flower
- To Bear Not nothing
What I really liked about the book was that how every poem ended with a footnote. This made reading and grasping the essence of emotions in the poem very easy for the new readers.
Though some poems were quite okayish. And some I did not like at all but I guess no book is perfect.
My Rating: 3/5 stars
