Book Review: Love & Misadventure


Title: Love & Misadventure

Author: Lang Leav

Published:  September 17th, 2013

Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing

Genre: Poetry, Romance 

My Rating: ☆  ☆  ☆    /5

“We may be just two different clocks, that do not tock in unison.”


Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully conceived, Love and Misadventure will take you on a rollercoaster ride through an ill-fated love affair- from the initial butterflies to the soaring heights- through to the devastating plunge. Lang Leav has an unnerving ability to see inside the hearts and minds of her readers. Her talent for translating complex emotions with astonishing simplicity has won her a cult following of devoted fans from all over the world.


It’s time to dive into the hype. Everyone is getting crazy about Lang Leav’s work and I must say it can really touch your emotions. Time to speak up for the mixed reviews.

I’m actually in love with poetry and if you’re looking for works like the classic then this is not for you. Sure, it may not be of literary genius but it is a heartfelt genius work. 

The book has three parts and I liked the 2nd part than the others. If you want to have an easy touch with feelings then you need to read this book. But if you’re looking for some “too deep, need to search for clues within these words” kind of poetry, then I don’t recommend this one. 

Poetry is still a precious work of art that is like a teleportation machine to emotion land, so read it well, feel it well and just… feel the emotions.

Have you read this? What are your thoughts? If you haven’t, what do you think after reading this?
