    I'm not sure if I just no longer need his writing anymore or I'm over it but he just seems so over dramatic and keeps repeating the same things in different ways. The best part of this book was the last story about Samantha's dad. I wish he'd tell more stories about life other than heartache. There are a lot of life altering issues in the world...move on.

    I know a lot of people didn't like the parts of RH Sin. I am a RM Drake fan also, but I loved it all. Everything was thoughtful and touching. Def worth a read.

    This wasnt the best book I have read this month, and it was quite eh. I dont know if it's just because it's all about heartache or what, but I wasnt feeling this one to much. I did relate to Drake's writing more though.

    Mediocre read. The poems in the second half I connected to more than the ones in the beginning.

    purchased this book off the strength of RM drake, i admire his work, even though his writing gets a little draggy. He saved the book. as far for sin's work, its still the same. his writing hasnt grown at all.

    Such beauty and realness in his words. My therapist wants me to work on the concept that, "I'm enough" just the way I am. This book is a love letter to that concept.

    I don’t really get why they call this poetry it’s just chopped up sentences. It’s a story that has no real meaning to it.

    I liked some of the poems from Drake, but I was ultimately bored by this collection. I continued out of obligation, but I almost quit during Sin’s poetry... most of the poems struck me as a jumble of Pinterest quotes I used to save to my phone when I was in high school. There was a lot of repetition that was not being used as an effective literary device, but rather seemed like the poet had nothing better to write about.

Maybe this book would’ve struck me as a teenager, but sadly, it was mostly disappointment this go around. I’ll keep it to revisit at another time. It got 2 stars for the handful of Drake’s poems that made me feel something.

    For some odd reason, I was slightly disappointed in this poetry book. I am usually a fan of Robert M. Drake, but his poems in this seem dry, repetitive and unnatural. They seemed forced. R. h. Sin never disappointed me in this book, I love his writing style and he seems to produce original work in every appearance. Since this book was the creation of both Robert M. Drake and R. h. Sin I felt it right to rate this three stars, since they each take up half of the finished product of "Falling For some odd reason, I was slightly disappointed in this poetry book.

    I was walking through Barnes & Noble with some time to kill before picking my kids up from swim practice and was intrigued by the title of this book. I’m not typically one for poetry, but scanned a few pages and decided to see what it was all about. I found a comfy chair in Barnes & Noble and read nearly the whole book in an hour and a half. I bought it and brought it home so I could finish it. It is so eloquent, so raw, and filled with genuine emotion. I absolutely loved it.

    Thoroughly underwhelming and unimpressive. I like to think I have a varied enough palette when it comes to prose but when two separate authors write ceaselessly on basically the same topic (it’s nighttime and I’m sad/a lady is sad) you can only spin it so many ways. Even then, there doesn’t seem to be much of an attempt on either author’s end to add nuance in any way and you end up reading the same damn poem ad nauseam. 2 stars because they had a pleasant turn of phrase occasionally.

    I was not a massive poetry fan before this book, but my oh my, this writing is beautiful. The poems hold lessons and memories for everyone and will help those struggling with acceptance to move forward, and those who have moved forward to continue on that track. Overall, even if you don't find tons of meaning in these words, they are descriptive and simply very pretty, and for the time they take to read, very worth exploring.

    This book didn’t really make me feel much honestly. It was almost like it was trying to hard to be one of those poetry books that are supposed to be righteous and motivating. The topics were very scattered and I feel it could have been organized differently. Perhaps I simply read it at the wrong time in my life but I really didn’t feel like this book moved me in any way.

    if this was entirely Robert M. Drake’s poetry this book would have 4 stars. I enjoyed the flow and lyricism of R.H. Sin’s poetry but it was EXTREMELY repetitive and not very original. It felt like I was reading the same “poem” (a.k.a. paragraph) over and over again. I was just skimming through it in the end.

    I definitely liked Drake’s pieces more than r.h sin’s. There was good poem here & there. This was the first material I’ve ever read by r.h sin & considering how hyped he is I was expecting so much more.

    Nope. You can’t just chop sentences up and call it poetry. I am also wondering if this was a challenge to see how many cliches can be crammed into one book? Two stars because I like the title and the cover illustration.

    To quote my sister: No, we didn’t need this. Only two poems were remotely interesting and for their message only. The almost complete lack of form and bland preachiness of it all becomes grating and repetitively boring rather quickly.

    *2.5-3 stars* I truly enjoyed the Robert M. Drake poems, but unfortunately didn't connect with r.h. Sin's poems. At times they felt a little repetitive and slightly overdone. Although I do appreciate each poem as an art form!

    This book was one relateable poem after another. I finished it in a day because it was so captivating.

    I liked the first half of poems better the second. The second half by RH Sin had a lot of "Dear Women," poems, and they often said hopeful and true things, but put me off.

    Enjoyable. Did not love the prose bits as much. Much of it read like a self help book as opposed go poetry, but enough spoke to me for 4 stars
