14-09-2018 Brilliant Poetry A poetry book I would like highly recommend to all you poetry lovers. Alan takes his readers on a journey from his opening poem all the way towards to the end of his book . He has a brilliant way of writing to hold your attention word by word , line by line, towards the ending line and to leave you with pondering thoughts afterwards. Sometimes when I buy a poetry book there might be some poems I don't fancy. Well with Alan's book it's the opposite, I do like all the poems and a lot. Oh, and believe me you don't have to be old yourself "as the hills" to enjoy his book, as he states on the back cover , with wry observations, moods swings and notes of joy.
