Book Review - Body Parts: A Collection of Poems About Aging by Janet Cameron Hoult

Thursday, June 24, 2010

I love this book! What a great way to start a review, I love being able to start a review that way. Thank you Janet Cameron Hoult for writing Body Parts: A Collection of Poems About Aging.

I thought this book was written with an older audience in mind after all I am only 29 years old. 29 YEARS OLD!! OMG I AM GOING TO BE 30 THIS YEAR!! On second thought this book is perfect for me and anyone else who can feel the years creeping up on them. Whether you are 25 or 85 each little thing (is you hair thinning?, your vision not what it used to be?) triggers something inside you, the knowledge that you are aging. Each poem in Body Parts looks at those little ups and downs that nature bestows upon us as we age.

I really empathized with the aging process. The poems in Body Parts helped me realize even though I'm not really THAT old aging is happening, it is a process and I should embrace it for what it is while living each day to it's fullest.
