EBook Review : Letters from the Soul by Purba Chakraborty

This is the season of Ebooks I feel, as Blogchatter Ebook Carnival is up with 100 of ebooks of various genres right from Travel, food, parenting to Anthologies. The EBook “Letters from Soul” by Purba Chakraborty is our first to review under this carnival blanket and is part of Blogchatter Book Review Program

Poetry Book Review

Book Title:

Letters from the Soul. The title is so intriguing that essays a reader is going to witness writings with heart poured in it and having in depth meaning.

Book Cover:

The cover showcases the girl standing at the horizon with sea in the forefront, which gives many positive vibes while looking at the cover. And the subtitle also adds to the weight of the book that makes the reader to think about the soul searching and soul healing.

About the book:

This book is a collection of 55 poems in more than 24 poetry forms. I as a poetry reader and writer enjoyed reading every prose in the book. The entire collection is divided into 4 seasons Winter, Summer, Autumn and Spring. Each poem speaks volumes in it while pondering on each one takes you to a world of self-thoughts.

My most loved Insides from the book:

The poem Umbrella of God, which is a pattern poem, is so delight to read, it is difficult to express words and form a pattern and must say Purba pulled it off very well.

The poem that says a lot in few lines is titled Beauty, here is the poem that will make you think in positive perspective.

Words become poetry
Coal turns into diamond
A voice sounds like music
Pain metamorphoses into art.
You can see countless pilgrims
On their journey to
That place called Love
Where beauty breathes
In all seasons.

One more excerpt from the book is titled “Cycle”, sharing the poem below

Every time,
I experience a déjà vu moment,
I feel the euphoria of my soul.
Whatever goes away returns back~
The same book in a new cover
The same words in a new tune;
The cycle continues
And we call it
A miracle.

Rule breaker, Fall in Love are also one of the best poetry that I will remember for long.

Likings of the book:

·      Words flow with ease in poetries.
·      Got to know new poetry forms.
·      Short and crisp poetry gives message clear and cut.
·      The titles of the poem are gripping and Purba has excelled in categorizing them into seasons and life phases.
·      Each poem delivers hope and positivity.

Piece of Advice:

Book Cover nowhere mentions it is a collection of poems, so a poet lover may miss it until he/she reads the book blurb.
