Amygdala Blue is an anthology of short stories and a collection of poetry that will captivate readers. This collection of writings is fascinating, covering religion, racism, and relationships. Every section of author Paul Lomax’s book has a variety of fascinating works for the reader to enjoy. In addition, his prose and poetry will leave readers feeling fulfilled or call on them to reflect on the status quo.
The creativity displayed by Paul Lomax is outstanding. In Amygdala Blue, the reader is taken through many emotions as each work inspires reflection and thought. The diversity in the topics keeps things from being monotonous and ties each piece together for the whole collection of socio-political themes.
The book is divided into three sections covering three critical subject matters in life; Religion, Racism, and Relationships. The author is blunt with the truth but has a graceful way of sharing his thoughts. This is especially displayed in poems, where he writes freely and with enthusiasm, but never forgets to highlight the poem’s theme. While reading this collection, readers will feel connected to the author. His way of describing characters, events, activities, and places gives you a clear mental picture of what he is writing about.
Apart from his explicit description, Paul Lomax is also skilled in how he demonstrates stylistic devices like symbolism, sarcasm, imagery, irony, and metaphors. The author is dedicated to his art and knows how to switch up text to keep the reader engrossed. One of the most notable elements in Amygdala Blue is Paul Lomax’s sense of humor. The author is hilarious and witty with his satire. The funny segments bring an aesthetic appeal to his writing.
Each section of the book had a chapter that got me reflecting on art and real life. The writings’ Symphony of Clouds,’ ‘Panther Lurking High Above the Hood,’ and ‘The Unborn Salt’ were among the most powerful, with the poem in ‘Panther Lurking High Above the Hood’ as my favorite.
The excellent diction, thrilling short stories, quotes, and amazing poem stand out in Paul Lomax’s work. In addition, I loved the stories’ brevity and the enlightening experience about social-political subjects.
Amygdala Blue is a thought-provoking collection of prose and poetry dealing with the socio-political themes of religion, racism, and relationships. Readers will experience the varying emotions that coincide with these topics through the eyes of the author.
