"Even looking at OCTOBER MOURNING dispassionately as a piece of literature or as a work of nonfiction, it is exceptional ...This is the one book I've reviewed so far this year that I believe must be read by everyone ages 14 and up. It takes less than an hour to read; but it will likely stay with the reader for a long time to come. Highly recommended for both YA and adult poetry collections."
