No Place For Us
No Place For Us by author Glenn Quentin has a way of transporting the reader into a dimly lit room surrounded by poetry-slam performers. Emotions bubble up out of the poems, creating a vessel of mixed feelings and thoughts that you can’t help but feel within yourself as though it is truly happening. There are several pieces that bring you in through the eyes of a voyeur standing in the corner while a tragedy plays itself out. Within the book are a few pages that are blank, which may be a formatting issue, along with a handful of typos. However, it is very well worth the read. And it will leave the reader to sit with very profound thoughts. You get the feeling that the narrator of each piece has seen many injustices in their lives or in the lives of others and that they combine in on themselves to create the masterpiece that the book has become. Many lines pop out and bring with it a heartbreaking effect. One of those lines being, “Hold front the pawn in a war” from the poem entitled “Dreary Dreams Derelict.” Readers from young adult to adult will find a voice of thought and a voice of change within.
