sitting on the bed duvet crushed underneath me – I’m a sumo wrestler, victory drinking a drink with another fantasy playing in my head where everything is in technicolour it works out and I’m sure,…
I love this book.
The pacing is well timed, the humour works, the characters are great and even the sci-fi elements feel realistic. There is also a few alien sex scenes to David Bowie songs.

This is an absolutely horrific book.
Shannon O’ Leary grew up in Australia during the 1960’s. She lived with her mum, brothers and dad. Patrick O’ Leary has a split personality disorder, is abusive towards his family and a killer. Shannon O’ Leary watched him kill women on more than one occasion.
I truly admire her mother, for eventually leaving her husband and also forever trying to protect her children, give them a normal childhood and stay working too.
The Blood on My Hands is an excellent memoir. You have to wonder how these events were allowed to happen and why Patrick O’ Leary was never arrested.
The resilience of this family is astounding.

There is no introduction to this collection of poetry and as a result we are brought into this book by poem Colours of Coping
These are poems of love, storms, and nature. There are many poems on realistic subjects.
Drunken Romance is about a violent relationship, The Underground covers homelessness, Inaction is about a fall from grace, The Puppet King seems to be written from the point of view of King Edward, It’s complicated was I just something to be worn?, Confession takes on church and Night-lights depicts rape.
There are poems from the perspective of prostitutes and alcoholics. So many lives that writer Devon D. Eaton could not have lived them all.
The romance in poems Your presence is
Pressed into the sheets at my side
I trail my hand through the warm hollow
And in Envy
Love seems so widespread
While I lie here broken
Other poems are frustrated and plagued with longing.
Wake up Call is glorious Merge your voice with mine now
First Kiss, Allure and Arousing tale are racy poems
Although more inspiring titles would have been Better, A Book I’ll Never Write is a curious collection to lose yourself in.
It is an anthology of poems written over six years as Devon D. Eaton grew into a man. He has much potential.
I am glad that this book was written.

I found Free Boat impossible not to love. It is more than a collection of poetry. Free Boat has essays, as well as sonnets. It blows itself away with its own overblown explanations of the hows and wherefores of each sonnet. You don’t even have to read these. You can buy the book and read the sonnets. Also included are pictures of John Reed mug shots, and commercial businesses with the brand name Reed. Information included as well is a family history and the reason behind the name Free Boat.
The sonnets are ethereal, memories of past relationships, slipping and gone. Free Boat is a look at relationships, husbands, wives, mistakes, lies and regrets. This is a more grown up view on love and it is zany.
