Book Review: Phases of Moon


This book is a collection of poems by the debut author Neha Jindal. I received a paperback copy from the author for review.
A thin book, a quick read with light hearted poetries and good choice of words are perks of this collection. I read it in one go. The poetries are based on different phases of a girl's life from teenage to motherhood and of course, mother-in-law-hood. The diverse emotions communicated in the book are well sequenced and depict much of a woman's life. I especially liked the part of poems on kids.
Indeed the first half of the book kept me glued, but the second half seemed to be diverged from womanhood to a different genre. But overall, its a good read. There are less people in the world of internet, who believe in penning down their original thoughts.
Although, as a reader I had expected some more poems describing and defining the strength and feminine powers of women, something that gives power to the pink gang!
I rate this book 3 on 5 and recommend it for those who wish to relive (women readers) or understand (male readers) the "Being woman" province.

(PS: the reviews expressed here are based on my personal reading experience, and do not intend to defame, derate or 
degrade the sale or vice-versa for the book. I am not paid for writing this review.)
