‘The Book of Open Hearts’ is a wonderful collage of poems, odes, and stories filled with easy to read passages that will captivate your every interest, and have you racing through, page by page. The imagery of the love poems will even have you closing your own eyes in hopes of seeing your one true love standing in front of you as you imagine the writer’s words as your own.
Throughout the book, the writer continues to capture so many different topics, and colors them so vividly you can only wonder how so much diversity can be contained in one person’s mind. You will find everything from love poems to the sorrowful longings of a broken heart, odes to both: friendship, the US Marines, and so much more.
The writer’s short stories hold a kaleidoscope of images and character descriptions that dance from page to page in his short stories. The words jump out of the book, and into your mind making ‘Genia’, the Genia of your own life.
