Review: Poet of the Wrong Generation

★★★★☆

''The complete heart-wrenching experience was cathartic,but entirely draining, leaving him exhausted beyond words.''

Leaving me exhausted beyond words. Robbing me of any coherent thought. 

Poet of the Wrong Generation should be thought as nothing more as a whole. Its magnificence becomes clear in the end. You might see glimpses of it in the beginning or in the middle, but the true glory strikes when you return the Poet to your bookshelf.

The story follows Johnny Elias through his rise and fall in his life. His rise to stardom over night as a singer-songwriter and his fall in both his career and personal life. Seasoned with twists and turns, Johnny's life could be easier.

Poet isn't action packed. Advancing with slow pace, it gives you time to actually experience the feels rather than just ploughing through. What I appreciated a lot was that due to the slow pace you can actually put it down and read it in small portions.

As for characters, there are quite a lot of them, but not too many. The main group is well developed and the lower on the importance ladder the less refined the characters were.

All in all, Poet was entertaining read. The themes it covers are a for a bit older audience, over 20-year-olds or something like that. I'm not saying that younger than twenty-somethings won't get anything out of it or it's not suited for them, but it could be a more understandable.

I really enjoyed Poet of the Wrong Generation. Truly recommend this!
