      Bienvenue certainly possesses an abundance of creativity. The preface explains the titles of poems were determined by votes from family and friends, not all titles reflect direct content. By disclosing this bit of information Bienvenue establishes his innovativeness. I enjoy poetry I can relate to, a poem inciting reflection, or provoking thought, heck blatant creativity and an artsy edge is appreciated too. Bienvenue provides poems both transparent and opaque, all filled with originality and sl [...]

      Like A Box Of Chocolates is a collection of poetry written by Justin Bienvenue. I love the idea that this collection is actually like a box of chocolates (hence the name). Just by looking at the title of each poem, the reader really has no idea what is in store. Why? Because Mr. Bienvenue came up with a random list of titles and then presented his family and friends with a voting process that resulted in the titles featured in this book. But then he had to actually write the poems! A little bit [...]

      First off, let me clarify by saying I'm really not a big poetry fan. However, I do write song lyrics from time to time so I can appreciate it.This truly is like a box of chocolates as he covers several themes in the collection. I was impressed with the depth of the poems. He didn't just toss out rhyming words, he spent time with structure and fleshed them out. I think I enjoyed the horror poems the most (Ghost Train was a favorite) but the others were interesting too.The only minor complaints I [...]

      When the author kindly sent me his collection of poems, I didn't know what to expect.The title 'Like a Box of Chocolates' kind of gave it away, I thought. How wrong I was!These poems are definitely not sickly sweet, so Im curious, what kind of chocolates Bienvenue is indulging on. The author has managed to convert me to start reading more poetry now. I have read his collection more than twice now and I'm far from sick of them. That says something.As a matter of fact, I want more of his so called [...]

      There's poetry you should read academically, there's poetry you should read to spark emotions, and there's poetry you should read for the music that will speak to your soul. Then, like with Edgar Allan Poe for example, there's poetry that you need to read for all of those things. Poetry that inspires beautiful imagery, emotions, music and has deeper meaning to dissect. That's what's in Like A Box Of Chocolates.While reading these fifty poems, you'll catch snatches of inspiration from Poe, Cummin [...]

      Like a box of chocolates was an interesting collection of poetry. One word to describe it would be eclectic. The author writes about various topics, some dark, some lighter, and the poems themselves varied from more literal to a bit more metaphoric.As a poet myself, I read this collection with a more critical eye, looking for depth and nuances and things that made me stop and think. This collection was more on the simpler side, which is not a bad thing. The differences between the pieces showcas [...]

      This is a hard book to review. It's a fast read, and for the most part it's a good read. Like anything that contains multiple stories (in this case, stories in the form of poems), there are some better than others. But that isn't to say that the lesser poems hurt the book overall. I love the ideas that Justin gives, he creates some really elegant ideas, and throws about some abstract and straight forward things that really are inventive. However, sometimes it seems like he's stretching so far, a [...]

      Poetry is not something that I make a regular habit of reading, but I figured I would give this collection a try. As with all poetry, there were some poems I related to better than others. My favorite was “At the Stroke of Midnight”, which had an interesting twist on “The Raven”. The poems have a slightly interesting, disjointed affect to them because the titles were chosen via Facebook and then the poems were written reactively. This gives them a twist of improvisation, sometimes to the [...]

      If you're looking for a different kind of poetry than probably what you've read before, rest assured you've arrived at the correct destination. Bienvenue has created an assortment of poems where some tantalize the mind with rhyme schemes that perk the senses. Every poem is a new story, some easy to figure out their direction from start to end with others taking a turn and their final destination becoming clear as you read the last line. I found myself intrigued with the works from beginning to e [...]

      In the end notes, Mr. Bienvenue writes he "likes to be unique and original." This collection of poetry is certainly that! Justin takes us along for a thrill ride in a car at 100 miles an hour and to a clinic for the Teddy bears of war. Each poem has a creative twist that makes you blink and rethink. It is wonderful to share the journey from idea to denouement with him.My favorites were The Immortal and Ghost Train. The first because I often feel that way and the latter simply because it so well [...]

      I won this book from the Giveaways. I enjoyed the poems, and loved how he created the titles for the poems by soliciting feedback and opinions from others. Like most poetry, some of the poems speak loudly to me, while others I had a hard time relating to. Definitely worth a read if you are into poetry.

    12. Christine Herb on said:

      The creativity that Justin poses is amazingly witty, charming, emotional, inspiring and fascinating. I loved this collection of his own thoughts and imagination. This book was something everyone should have on their shelves at home. Awesome job Justin. Thanks for sharing!

      It's really like a box of chocolates ! When I received this ebook from Justin I was curious, then impressed with the deepness through the word game I m looking forward new treasure like this one

      This was actually a pleasant surprise and I really enjoyed how Justin went about writing the poetry. A delight for all.

      Let's just say you are reading the openings to a weekly television series. The opening narrator comes onto the screen and tells the synopsis of tonight's short tale, you're about to watch.Bienvenue's work reads a lot like that. For my poetry liking it steps out of my zone. His mood setting is a little on the eerie side, sometimes moving to a quick laugh. If this is your type of poetry then climb under the covers with the folks on the cover and make sure to check your chocolate before you eat it. [...]
