I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
Author and poet Abdul Sami shines a light on the dark truth on the realities of life in today’s world in his book of poetry, Pseudo Man. Here’s the synopsis:
The Pseudoman continues to raze the foundations laid down by our ancestors. His greed and self-contempt are corrupting the true essence of humanity. War, pain, loss and futile quarrels have become our absolute fate. Will we ever wake up? Or will we all volunteer to be a casualty of this self-constructed catastrophe?
Although dark, the poems are beautifully written. A vivid use of imagery brings a harsh light onto the horrors of war, crimes against nature and crimes against humanity. The horrors mankind inflicts upon itself and the inability for man to learn from the past of our ancestors leads poet Abdul Sami to create a unique and creative collection of poetry. Although a fast read, the impact is great as the reader delves into the narrative of the poems themselves and starts to ask themselves what their impact on the world is, and forces us to ask how we can change it.
Overall it’s a great collection. Eloquently written and giving a new perspective on the way we view the world, author and poet Abdul Sami has created a fantastic new book that both educates and inspires us all to aspire to be better than those who came before us, and to work towards a better tomorrow to get out of a dark and hellish today. If you haven’t yet, be sure to grab your copy of Pseudo Man today!
