Book #9- Thin Kimono

Title- Thin Kimono
Author- Michael Earl Craig
Series- None
Genre- Poetry
Pages- 105
Pages to date- 2,595

The Good:
Craig has a very distinct style of poetry. Each piece is imbued with a sort of "I know a ton but won't tell you anything" tone. It's very interesting. My personal favorites are "In the Road" and "The Sorensen Effect."

The Bad:
Some of Craig's longer poems didn't quite keep my attention as much as I would hope, but further readings dispelled this effect.

The Verdict:
There isn't much I can say about this collection; it's one of those you have to read for yourself. My best summary is that it is an interesting, eclectic set of poems.
