COUNTENANCE: Mood through spoken word poems

Review Completed by: Heaven Smith (H.J)


 

Countenance: Special Edition by Adrienne Ijioma is a riveting collection of prose and poetry that explores a person’s innermost workings and some deeper thoughts behind the most pivotal pieces of life. As we read, we are forced to pause and ponder deeper than most.


Between the interplay of depth and truth, the whimsical imagery and the opportunity for emotional growth, we believe that this is a book that can’t be missed. We at Realistic Poetry International are pleased to give this title a full range of 5 stars, as a rating.


Countenance is a book that is full of insights which provides ample space to improve a reader’s critical-thinking skills. It is great for new and middle-grade readers, as well as older audiences alike whom may want to tease their skills in an impactful yet subtle kind of way.


Give up

Struggling, believing trying, grieving accepting sweet talk expecting life to change... or crying, whimpering, angrily simmering; Ready to give up? Hit Backspace... rearrange.”



Got through it

This look on my face is not by accident. Every crease and crinkle earned. The lines that marked my worry and pain, developed over battles long ago fought and won. Days, months and years of preparation, to be ready to face it, willing to endure and able to write the story - permanently ingrained like tattoos on my skin. Eyes a little tired, yes but bright with expectation. Cheeks a bit gaunt, ok but still I smile in fullness because the strains of life passed by and left me beautified and strong. Whether gone for good or just for now, standing tall and ever fearless. knowing I got through it.”



Adrienne Ijioma has given us such a cleverly written, intellectual thriller. There is never a dull moment and so much to be explored — Don’t wait! Pick up your copy, today! The flow of this book is perfectly designed to keep us wondering about the next progression. A flow like this is rare, for the genre; again, making Countenance a title that deserves its time to shine.


Well done. We look forward to the next instalment and any other titles, in the future!
