My Review (can be found on Goodreads and Amazon):
“Jade Moore’s Conversations Bordering on Torment chronicles the author’s journey of dealing with anxiety, through the use of poetry. Moore uses her amazing talent with words to connect with fellow sufferers and succeeds!
Right away, before the poems even begin, Jade opens with a beautifully passionate and professional introduction that is truly touching and relatable. She quickly but effectively describes her book and the poems included, giving you a taste of what to expect without ruining the poems to follow. The introduction is anything but boring and trite. Rather, Jade keeps you hooked, fascinated, and ready to read her beautifully inspiring poetry!
Unlike some authors, Jade managed to write poetry that was both clear and succinct. She took an emotion that can be quite complicated and made it so it could be understood by her readers. As I was reading her poems, I felt as if Jade was in my mind – listening to my thoughts and writing them down in a breathtaking way.
Jade also accomplished a usually difficult feat – the ability to really grab the attention of her readers and use imagery in a way that you could feel both the writer’s pain and hope. Sometimes anxiety can be a tricky thing to describe, but through reading Jade’s poetry, I really got a sense that she understands what it is to struggle with something so terrible and difficult. As a fellow anxiety sufferer, this book brought me solace that I am not the only one who feels trapped inside of anxiety’s sticky web.
The bottom line is this: Conversations Bordering on Torment is a fantastically beautiful read. It’s creative, inspiring, and utterly genuine. If you have anxiety, suffer with any type of mental health issue, know someone who does, or just want to read a wonderful book full of exquisite writing, then this book is definitely for you!” (Review Originally Posted On Goodreads)
