Impressed!

This, to me, was really impressive for 2 personal reasons.
1. I live in Cape Town but I struggle to base my stories in South Africa, partly because I can't quite find a way to make it internationally relatable & appealing. You, however, don't have that problem, you wrote the setting in perfectly.
2. Writing from a male perspective can be really daunting, especially when it has to do with emotions and insecurities in a raw way. Will's character showed proper ingenuity in that regard.
The only thing I would probably say is to maybe give your book another proof read to get rid of the tiny typos here and there, some sentences have words that don't belong (you can tell you changed the sentence up) It's not major, in fact, your story is a breath of fresh air in terms of grammar but if I were to give constructive feedback it would be that.

Great job!!

Hauntingly beautiful!

I'd like to start off by giving you immense credit for the vulnerability portrayed in your writing.
It was raw and genuine and in many ways, brave.

You are a really interesting voice, in that, the way that you write both exudes passion & pain.
Your vocabulary also pays favour to the reader's experience and I am, if anything, a sucker for finding the right word to emit the right emotion... you executed this fantastically.

I've only marked you less than 5 stars for 2 very minor, albeit important, reasons:

1. There is a contrast between your poetry and short stories in that both of them are great but your short stories really add an extra punch. It's almost exciting clicking next chapter, and it being a short story.
2. The typos here and there, nothing major, but somewhat noticeable.

All in all, this book is really immersive and incredibly well written.
It's evident that passion abounds on every page and when the reader picks that up, it's golden.

I really look forward to reading more, great work!!!
