Take Me with You Reviews

  • Brandon Forsyth

    I laughed as much as I cried. It was a huge mistake to take this book out in public.

    This is probably the purest poetry collection I've ever read.

    I know poetry is extremely personal, you have to connect to an author's personal experience to really enjoy what this person has to say, and fortunately for me I did connect with Andrea Gibson. They touched my heart on so many levels, reading their poetry collection was a beautiful experience.

    This is probably the purest poetry collection I've ever read.

    I know poetry is extremely personal, you have to connect to an author's personal experience to really enjoy what this person has to say, and fortunately for me I did connect with Andrea Gibson. They touched my heart on so many levels, reading their poetry collection was a beautiful experience.

    There is a huge message of hope hiding behind all these poems, and this collection isn't trying to sell you some easy and polished hope, no, it's telling you ‘here, here's what you can hope for the future, but it won't happen in one day, you'll have to work for it, but trust me it's worth it.’

    I simply cannot wait to have this poetry collection in my hands.

    I am still so in love with this book of poetry. I bought a physical copy the day it was released because of how much it meant to me when I first read it as an ARC.

    I had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading this. A whirlwind of words, and someone screaming poetry at me – responding to the poetry within me? Well, finally.

    This is an important book addressing love, the world, politics, ourselves, panic attacks, and simple reminders… realisations?

    And one life lesson I picked up (in Capital letters! YES!): The worst thing that ever happened to me was not the worst thing that ever happened to me. Hating myself for it was.”

    "A pocket book, by Andrea Gibson. Out January 23rd, 2018

    A book small enough to carry with you, with messages big enough to stay with you, from one of the most quotable and influential poets of our time.

    Andrea Gibson explores themes of love, gender, politics, sexuality, family, and forgiveness with stunning imagery and a fierce willingness to delve into the exploration of what it means to heal and to be different in this strange age. Take Me With You, illustrated throughout with evocative line drawings by Sarah J. Coleman, is small enough to fit in your bag, with messages that are big enough to wake even the sleepiest heart."

    Andrea Gibson is a non-binary spoken word artist whose YouTube videos are heartfelt and powerful. I dare anyone to listen to the video ‘Orlando” and not be affected by her honesty and powerful presence.

    This little pocket book moved me. Gibson distills the thoughts of many of us living on the fringe of accepted society. Well done.

    eARC received with thanks from publisher via NetGalley for review.

    I like the idea and sentiment of these poems but I feel like the poet barely scratches the surface. It is more like they are presenting the reader with brief sentiments rather than fully developed poems. I feel like there is a lot more there, and using their themes of the intersection of politics and love, love-as-resistance, etc., I would just say, please do more with these ideas.

    As they are, they fall into the Instagram/Tumblr poetry category... some compare with Rupi Kaur but I would only agree with that if the comparison is to Rupi's one sentence poems. I would have liked to see the same variety in this work. There is also at least one direct trauma mention, and as I've mentioned previously, I think we need a subgenre or a new word for some of this poetry that seems to be coming out of therapy and trauma. It isn't the same as literary poetry and I keep feeling misdirected when I pick it up. This is not the poet's fault.

    I should throw in my usual caveat, in that if you are ten years younger than me and you are exploring what love looks like, especially in an LGBTQ world, these may connect more directly to you.

    I didn’t feel this collection of poems to be very impactful.

    Andrea Gibson prefers they/them pronouns, so can you please stop misgendering them in your reviews?!
