I quite like John Lennon’s books, but they do get a little repetitive after a while. That’s because they’re basically just chock full of wordplay, nonsense poetry and odd little stories and sketches. It’s great to see inside his head of course, but I’m not sure they’re worth reading unless you’re a fan of his. Still, it’s quirky, which I like.

Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

Contemporary poetry is hit and miss – I either love it or hate it, and I particularly hate it when it’s unoriginal. Luckily, Magnesium feels both original and contemporary, with some excellent wordplay and plenty of little lines that linger and make you start to think more than you thought about things before. I didn’t love all of it, but I loved a lot of it – and I’d definitely read more.
