Reader's Thoughts

I like how Stroud, especially in this collection, uses humor and lightness in his observations of the world around him. This book in some ways doesn't feel like one book - the sections vary tremendously in tone, character, rhythm, point of view, etc. so it feels somewhat disjointed. That said, the opening poem, which is a tribute to his father and a description of the loss he felt after his father's passing, and many poems in the first section are so powerful they carry the day and make the journey into his world well worth it.
