The first review of "Poetry on the fly"

The first review of "Poetry on the fly" is up at Amazon: five stars. The review by Jeff Posey reads, in part:
Five stars! For a bunch of limericks? Yes. Here's why: They made me laugh, they made me sad, they made me think and squirm and reflect. They even, some of them, made me confused. When any form of writing can elicit that range of emotions and reactions from me, especially in so few words, it makes me respect it and rate it highly. 
But limericks? For crying out loud. Who writes limericks anymore? And who reads them?
Well, reading them isn't good enough. You've got to say them. You've got to speak these out loud, or you'll miss the beauty and joy of them. I recommend reading them aloud to other people. To your friends and family.
Maybe while you're on a vacation (and you're not the one driving). You'll find things in here that will delight and amaze you.
Tony Noland has a way with words that is nothing short of astonishing. 
Well, now, that's the kind of thing that makes you want to go drop $0.99 on it and start reading them out loud, isn't it?

For the record, almost all poetry is intended to be read out loud. You miss at least half of the emotional content by just reading them on the page. As the reviewer correctly notes, for the very best experience of my poetry, read it out loud to someone else. You will be amazed at how much you'll enjoy the experience

Don't believe me? Toss a buck at Amazon and see for yourself.

  1. Tony,

    Excellent news on the second book! I hope to, sooner rather than later, have kindle reading ability. Rest assured this is on the list once I do!

    All the best,

  2. Tony, congratulations on this - so glad you gave me the link on my blog. I do NOT have a Kindle. I know, Neanderthal Woman here. Is there any other way to get this digitally? Can I download it to my computer? Let me know at my blog, because I'd gladly drop a buck for a whole passel of your limericks! Peace, Amy
