Book Review: The Universe of Us by Lang Leav

Updated on April 24, 2019
This book review is different from the review projects and
opportunities that I am accepting, not assigned nor required to
be reviewed by me. This is a self-made review as a fan of some
of Lang's written works.

Book Title: The Universe of Us
Author: Lang Leav
Genre: Prose and Poetry
The Universe of Us had seemed to let me sit an inch beside
the rotating planets, stars as the chandelier. It wasn’t much frigid
because of the warmth of the sun—and of her words.
Lang Leav, the author, constructed thoughts in a way that made
me turn the pages all the more. The words are charismatic, well lit.
Here are my insights to some of my favorite excerpts from the book:
“Most people want to save the entire world. It’s a lovely thought,
and I’m not saying that it’s not a noble pursuit—but it’s impossible
to save everyone. You just have to pick your little corner of the
world and focus your energy there. That’s the only way you will
ever make a difference.” —Conversations, Page 43
It relates to me, personally, because I consider my writing corner,
which is the blogsite that I created in 2018, to be the crib of focus
in building up my own space in creative writing. I, as well, write
poetry books; that’s why I felt the same connection.
She won’t let anyone take it away from her. It is her rocket fuel
and finally, she is going places. She can feel it down to her very
core—this is her time. —Her Time, Page 63
This excerpt from her piece “Her Time,” would surely put some
glint in the eyes of those who read it. And whatever goals the
readers may have, would surely be set in motion just by reading
these lines.
And I thought if the artist had painted just one brushstroke less,
he could have told an entirely different story. If he began with a
smear of red instead of blue, it could have been a chapter instead
of an era. —Blue, Page 121
I agree on this, artists and enthusiasts are detailed in textured
rhythm of scribbled illustrations; the balance and mix of
ideas are included in the formula, the same thing applies with
creative writing, just a piece of a missing or added word would
narrate a different story. This is the written piece of her that I
wouldn’t get tired of reading, it definitely has a soul and
texture—not a roll of dice.
And all have conspired to keep it from reach. —Solace, Page 155
This holds true with our hopes that rest in promising fate. The
fulfillment of our dreams is nearer than it was yesterday, that’s my
belief; I hope yours sounds the same.
These are my fountain of thoughts and reactions toward this book.
I hope I plotted well my deep admiration upon her written works.
In fact, she’s one of my inspirations in writing my first poetry
book! I hope she reads this review; it would mean the entire
universe to me. *blushing*
