Book Reviews


It’s been quite some time since the last time I read a poetry book and fell super love with it. More Than Words speaks out the title well – it definitely speaks more than what words could ever offer.

More Than Words brought me to the world of love and beauty. The poems spoke out Zack’s feelings of falling in love and being heartbroken. I was deeply immersed with his poetries it felt like I was swimming in his very own ocean of melancholic, happy and in love self. It was magnificent.

When I first found this book, I was hypnotised by the beautiful cover, and a stanza from now one of my favourite poems. When I was meandering through this book, I could sense Zack’s emotions like they were around me. This book of his becomes the epitome of beautiful poetries this world really needs. And I must say, we need more talented people like him not just in Malaysia, but ubiquitously in general.

5 magnificent stars for this masterpiece. Highly recommended!
