Anansi Sikomò's 88: Resurrection. Regeneration. Remastered is a collection of poems ranging from love, self-esteem, heartbreak, obsession, infatuation, depression, and all of the feelings and ideas that go through our minds when we stop, feel, and think about the past, present, and future. All the poems together form a coming of age story relevant to anyone who reads it. As the title states, 88 is the symbol of infinity and it alludes to how many different words from different languages can mean the same and more when it comes to love and everything that it encompasses. Love is everywhere.

Once I started 88: Resurrection. Regeneration. Remastered I could not stop even if I tried; better yet, I didn’t want to stop. It made me feel things that I haven’t felt in a long time, it reminded me how incredible love is and yet how heart-wrenching it can be. It resembles a painful pleasure that I never want to forget. Extremely well written, fluent in every way and, most importantly, true to the last detail. I think this poetry collection is going to become one of those staple books that just have to be read. If you are one of the few that hasn’t, you have no idea what love is about; at least that is what this book has made me feel. I can’t wait to recommend this to everyone I know. Anansi Sikomò's 88 cunningly reaches into the deepest and darkest corners of your heart and mind and slaps it with love.
