Book Review: Marc’s Message by Josée Therrien

Marc’s Message provides an exclusive and truthful sight of life and the world today. The author has shared her reflections on life and its challenges with poetry in the book.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Marc’s Message is a collection of poetry that is thoughtful and full of insight. Most of the poems are short, some haiku, and they’re all distinctive. A couple of my favorites:

Feeling alone
is nothing
compared to being alone.

Don’t let your dreams wake you.
Wake your dreams.

If you are looking for some unique poetry, Marc’s Message would be a good choice.

About the Author

Josée Therrien is a 24 year old Canadian author who started writing at a very young age, discovering ways to express her emotions and thoughts. She is passionate in observing life, which comes through in her poetry. ‘Marc’s Message’ is the author’s first creation; she is currently writing and preparing for her next poetry book.

Speaking to the media, Josée said, “Marc’s Message is dedicated to my father who was a great human being. He always dreamed of a beautiful life in spite of his struggles with manic depression. He wanted to see people love and care for the world and be true to themselves. I have kept his passion for life in my heart and in my poems.” She further added, “I want to convey a message with this poetry book. Life is very beautiful but sometimes it can seem dark, but enjoy it and get through it, for what awaits on the other side is a field of dreams.”
