    1. Disappointing The Names of Donkeys is good, and some of the anti Bush poems OK A disturbingly large number of the others end with a shrugging, life goes on gesture which, granted, if I were Catholic I d probably feel too.

    2. My favorite poem in this volume is Local Heros Some great lines and words From all of time, this late July, this moment, from every other one, this one and only in every start, an end.Some days the worst that can happen happens.And if the ends do not justify the means, still, ends are what we re after Listen something s going to get you in the end.The numbers are fairly convincing on this,hovering, as they do, around a hundredpercent We die And s the pity.Also, some great words and phrases he u [...]

    3. Poetry books always take me longer to read than their length would suggest.I like to savor the poems, reading them slowly and often than once This collection of poetry is a combination of everyday experiences, life events, and history.I liked the way they were put together and the humour evident in many These poems relate life with friends, not necessarily much in the way of material possessions, and an acknowledgement of human experience.A lovely book

    4. This is the first book of Thomas Lynch s poetry that I ve read I found his work to be wonderful, readable, and relatable My favorites were To Be Among These Elegant Voices , Local Heroes and Alchemy although the opening poem Euclid is pretty terrific too The theme for this collection has to do with the pilgrims you meet along life s journey Would definitely recommend.

    5. This is an excellent collection of poems Lynch has a voice that is serious, mordant, at times quite light and humorous, but always approachable He is calming, and seems aimed as dispensing us of our illusions I loved every line.

    6. I had the pleasure of meeting Thomas Lynch a few years back and he is such and interesting person I really enjoyed listening to him talk And his writing is incredible.

    7. I enjoy how Lynch s writing feels familiar and is yet distinct This collection of poetry is simple, but contains some moving pieces I have marked a few favorites.
