Reflections in Silhouette: Poems - T L Cooper I downloaded this when it was on a free promotion because I am always looking for new and interesting voices in poetry. Unfortunately, I didn't find it here. Like the last poetry collection I read, most of the poems read like diary entries or poems written to allow the author to vent with nothing to make the reader care about the poet's particular problems. There is no attempt to interpret or recast the author's experiences in such a way to engage readers.

This is self-published, so: The layout and font inside were readable. Poems started on a new virtual page (kudos). However, there was no Table of Contents with hyperlinks to poems, which would have been nice for a book this long.

Overall: 1 star. Poetry is too internally-focused.
