    One thought on “Encounter

    1. Philip Dodd on said:

      Encounter by Linda Dobinson is a fine collection of poems, I think. I appreciated the verses for their clarity and directness. There is a freshness and innocence about them, which I liked. Spring, summer, autumn, winter, the four seasons are mused upon and celebrated in the light, flowing lines. There are poems of lost love, but with no self pity, no plunge into despair. Unlike many modern poems, the poems in the collection never seem too clever for their own good, written in a secret code. Like [...]

      This book is so amazing! It had me wishing for summer and usually I hate summer so that's rare on it's own. The poems of love are what stuck with me the most. I found myself trying to memorize some so I could keep them forever. This book is a very short read. So if you are wanting to get into poetry but aren't sure, then get this book. If you don't like it, then no harm done but if you decide you like poetry than you have a wonderful little book that gives you a great start.I'm so glad that I wa [...]

      I know, we hear the word “poetry” and the horrors of high school return, reading it, writing it, dissecting it, interpreting it…which brings to mind, how come the teacher’s version of the interpretation was the only correct one? Encounter by Linda Dobinson is definitely NOT poetry with hidden meanings, what you read is what you get, well-written, light, filled with contemporary wording that never short changes us in their meaning of the feelings of the author.Linda Dobinson has an affini [...]

      (I received a copy for free from the first Reads!) :)“If I were the sun and you were the moon.”I am not that into poems, I don’t even know their forms. Ha! But I love to read poems especially those about love, family, and friends. And I found those in the Encounter by Linda Dobinson.Encounter is a book of poems not only about love but also about the different seasons. When you read the poems about them, you will escape time and think about the season and imagine what was happening based o [...]

      This book is definitely a summer read. With all those marvelous images of Barbados virgin beaches, I found myself longing for an evening near the waves.Linda Dobinson finds solace in nature and her poems translate that patently. She uses natural elements to document her feelings of loss, love, lust, wishful thoughts and nostalgia.I loved the variety of the poems’ traditional writing style. When we strip away all the flashes, the lights, the mechanical noises and the social pressures what truth [...]

      I was sitting on the beach when I started to read this collection of poems/free verse. They captured my thoughts – I felt at one with nature, loved the crashing waves – just as the author describes. A perfect book for a holiday read. In between each poem, I glanced up and enjoyed the feel of the wind, the sound of the waves and the warmth of the sun. Then I read on and on, the book adding to my enjoyment. For some, such as Thorns, I stopped and considered – on holiday one has time to think [...]

      The author kindly sent me a free copy in exchange for an honest review."Encounter" by Linda Dobinson is delightful! A selection of poems collected into what I can only describe as "a look at life", "Encounter" will make you smile, make you wonder, and make you want more!All the different aspects are so cleverly intermingled that even with the individual nature of each poem the theme of "life" remains constant (not so much watching people, as the author watching herself, perhaps?).Insightful, hon [...]

      An enjoyable mix of poetry. A few titles certainly stand out, the Haiku was especially enjoyable as are titles such as Snow, I need you in my life and I want to write.I find Linda's poetry is accessible and it does not needs hours of my time to try and decipher meaning. I shall be sharing some of these poems, specifically the seasonal ones with my seven year old daughter.I won this book through Firstreads for a honest review.

      I was sent a copy of Encounter by the author for an honest review.Encounter is a collection of (mostly free verse) poems about love, nature, and life. Unfortunately, these poems weren’t for me. I wasn’t impressed by the collection, but there were little things here and there that made me smile.'A wisp of wind'A wisp of wind whirlsFallen leaves as summer slipsInto memory.

      **I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.**First off I have to say, that I love poetry. I discovered my love of poetry in 2005 and have been reading and writing poetry off and on since then, and each year I find myself loving it more and more.Reading about love and fun, happiness, family, friends, holidays, seasons, or even some sad poetry. I love it all and this book was no exception. Linda's book Encounter is wonderful and I know I'll be reading it over and over. I love her d [...]

      I love finding a great collection of poetry. This one was gifted to me by the author Linda. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful words. Each poem is written with heart, soul, and great imagery. This is a wonderful collection.

      Please note: I received a copy from the author as part of First Reads.An 'encounter' with a play on words, with emotions on paper. The author literally makes herself an open book. You get to really feel the flow of her experiences with each pages' continuity. You get to feel her longing, her joy and everything in between. The cover might make it seem like the collection is all about a happy ordinary summer day but the contents say otherwise. If you want to go on a journey with Ms. Dobinson, one [...]
