The Moon Said No - Casey Renee Kiser

I received this book from LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.

I was really excited when I won this book. It is the fourth book of poems I have read by Kiser and I could not wait to consume more.

The poems were wonderful as I expected they would be. The simplicity tied in with unique voice of Kiser makes for a very enjoyable read.

The chapbook includes 18 poems, which were all well done, but there was something missing from this book that made me pause. While all the poems are good, they didn't quite live up to my expectations of Kiser's talent. They didn't all quite reach to the same depth as Kiser's other collections.

Still, this is a good book and I would recommend it to anyone, even people who don't normally read poetry. The shortness of the piece is easy to digest and really makes the reader feel the words on the page.
