Soulful Transitions, by Lorena Muñoz ISBN 9781478759492
Three out of five stars
This collection of poems consists largely of emotional anguish, describing what appears to be a love affair that has gone wrong. There is discussion of betrayal, addiction to him, perpetual deceit and other related aspects of break-ups. The prose appears stiff in the sense that there is not a smooth flow, it generally has the feeling of being forced. After a point, the reader hopes for a change of subject and a little more of a light-hearted manner.
There is a transition to a bit more of a positive tone later in the book, but it is not a great change. This is a book that one does not read in order to make an emotional change from the down to the up. For it never really gets that far up.
If you are someone that enjoys reading prose that is generally dark and brooding, then you might like this book. However, if you prefer the light and positive, then you will not find this book one that will bring the up crease of a smile to your face.
