Review: The Stupid Nerdy Notebook Vol 1-3

The Stupid Nerdy Notebook Vol 1-3
by Chris Garrett


The Stupid Nerdy Notebook is the poetic struggle of a teenage boy trying to understand the world and why things happen the way life intends. With the classical influences of Robert Frost and Edgar Allen Poe and the help of modern music in the Punk ,indie ,and hardcore genre. Chris Garrett creates page after page of exciting stories in the form of riddles, rhymes and stanzas. We all have battles to face and sometimes the best defense is a pen and paper.


This took me back to my angst-ridden teen years. My days were filled of poetry as well, but Garrett has been able to hold on to these feelings into something tangible. Garrett gives us a flashback, a rewind if you will, into the past where teen poetry rules with that over-fill of emotion. The poetry will take you back and immerse you into the emotion the time and words.


I recommend if poetry is your thing.
