“Book of Panacea” is the second book I read by the same author. Her first book was Scintillating Verses of the Spirit. Not to my surprise, she writes well. I am impressed already, as her words make an impact on readers, no matter how small the book is. Like her first book, this one is also a short read. But her words are so profound that readers can’t get enough. Let’s look over some key features of Anubhuti’s Books.
Similarity Between Both Books, Scintillating Verses of the Spirit & Book of Panacea
- Both are Short Reads
- Quotations and Sayings of famous Authors/Philosophers
- Unique Subjects of Poems
- Glimpse of Learning from legends, circumstances and surroundings
- Adieu to Pain and Dilemmas
Though both the books are very short, in contrast, the poems are of standard length. After gauging the characteristics of her books, it’s time to talk about “Book of Panacea” alone.
Cover and Title
The cover page is attractive and sends some good vibes. I like it a lot. Of course, the poetess got a plus point. It’s a matter of praise that the cover is designed by the author herself. Well suited to the themes and core of the poems, the title is apt. Since we all look for a Panacea when in Pain, I believe the poetess got the idea of naming the book from there only.
Theme of the Poems
The prime themes of the poems are pain, longing, shelter and self-esteem.
Language and Narration
Language and narration are both effective. Moderate vocabulary is used. A beginner may find difficulty in elucidation of the poems. The narration is smooth and keeps the readers engaged. Poems are written in all person (1st person, 2nd person…), so readers can easily relate the matter with them.
Overall, this book was a good choice for my book list. It could be a little longer. I would suggest the author make her next a bit lengthy.
Ratings & Recommendations
I recommend this book to every poetry reader out there. I am pretty sure it won’t regret you irrespective of its small size.
