Book Review: Lockdown Innit: Poems About Absurdity by MJ Mallon – SC Skillman Author

Source: Book Review: Lockdown Innit: Poems About Absurdity by MJ Mallon – SC Skillman Author

In this collection of poems, MJ Mallon has given us a wry series of vignettes of our society during a very strange year in history; it reminded me in part of theatre of the absurd, and she carries it out with an admirable lightness of touch.  She conveys the folly, the irritability, the absurdity of people’s behaviour, along with a feeling of being lost and adrift.

Thank you so much to Sheila for reading and reviewing Lockdown Innit. A wonderfully detailed review, I appreciate it so much. <3

Book Review – Lockdown Innit by Marjorie Mallon @Marjorie_Mallon #BookReview #BookBlogger #poetry – Shalini’s Books & Reviews

Thank you so much to Shalini for arranging an awesome book blitz for me and for this thoughtful review of my new poetry collection, Lockdown Innit Poems About Absurdity.

A cute collection of poems where some like a little library made me long for one. Danger to the pedestrians reminded me why I don’t go out. Some people are just rude and have no civic sense. Road rage is another one that is so relevant. I remembered being the brunt of one.

Author Marjorie Mallon’s keen sense of observation came to play in the way the poems were penned. Different emotions like fear, anger, longing, desire, humor were evoked while reading them. I am not a connoisseur of poems as I feel they are too personal to be judged or rated. But these were easy to understand.

The words also showed how people behaved during these tough times. It is the truth that some have still not learned after losing so many lives across the world. Many in the book were hard-hitting, some were humorous, and the best ones were, where the spoke of her love for her daughters through her words. Hope sailed through in them.

Then the author sneaked in a wispy one longing to be like the cat, dreaming peacefully of normal times. A perfect way to end the book.

All in all, at 35+ pages, the poems were eclectic and would touch everyone who has survived this pandemic.

#Review #5stars Lockdown Innit; Poems about Absurdity, by M. J. Mallon @Shalini_G26 @Marjorie_Mallon #newrelease

Via Didi Oviatt’s blog:

Congrats to M. J. Mallon on her new release of poetry!  I personally love poetry, but it has to be a certain way… I’m picky.  I’ve read a bit of her work in This is Lockdown so I knew going in that her style of writing is a great match to my poetry appreciation. 

MY REVIEW 5 stars:
I devoured this quick book of poetry in one sitting. It took me less than an hour and I enjoyed every page. Mallon has a way of capturing your attention, and every poem is relatable. It’s smooth easy reading offers a mix of thoughts, events, and a variety of happenings some of which are silly and some are a lot more edgy and serious.

I loved the poems, they captured the spirit of the times, the vagaries of human behaviour, the poignant signs of a society in change. There are some beautiful observations of what has become the new normal. Review quote from author Richard Dee @RichardDockett1 https://bit.ly/3uCs5B2\
