Unpretty real 15 Dec. 2006
By BookDoc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Though I love all types of good poetry, this book is special. More thematically narrative and philosophical than your average mainstream pretty-poems, Oomen's work is gritty, honest, storytelling, startling, and beautiful in its images. I couldn't stop reading, then couldn't wait to get it to another poetry reader, to share the gold.

woman under the radar 9 Mar. 2007
By M. Cleary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What Anne-Marie Oomen has done with this collection of poems is unearth a woman not commonly seen in poetry. Her journey is geographical, but more interestingly, emotional. The "uncoded woman" does a great deal to create an earthy, heartfelt character, warts and all, one worthy of a new "code" if it was possible to ever classify the type of woman who is different but recognizable. It was like reading a novel in verse--and a very good one.
A compilation of rather impressive and highly recommended verse by poet, playwright and essayist Anne-Marie Oomen 6 Mar. 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Uncoded Woman" is a compilation of rather impressive and highly recommended verse by poet, playwright and essayist Anne-Marie Oomen (Founding Editor of the 'Dunes Review' and Chair of the Creative Writing Department at Interlochen Arts Academy). All of the individual poems (each of which is headed by semaphore letters) combine to tell the story of a woman named Bead and her search for a safe harbor which involves ship's pennants and how they are used to communicate - and miscommunicate. 'UC - Is a Pilot Available in This Place?': Only one birch here not yet gone/to blight, dirty sleeve shines/its tattered column even in/this spring racked with fog.//Not yet riddled with punk, it holds/up a night sky that's too close,/holds up blind stars who see who I am,/not who I could be. I follow its rules://Hide in the dark./Stand alone./Move when the wind does./Don't talk.
An Authentic Life, Deliciously Mysterious 19 Oct. 2007
By Brynn G. Slate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
More than a collection of poems, this book tells a story that reveals, piece by piece, an authentic life. Immediate and alluring, "Un-coded Woman" hooked me as each page not only shed a tempting beam of light onto a shadowed character, but also strung together a chain of images that offered insight into a person and landscape that both ultimately remained deliciously mysterious.
Depth of a Novel 3 July 2012
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a single poem of chapbook length that you will want to put in the hands of all your closest friends and tell them, "Read this. It's a poem. Don't moan. It isn't long; it's a poem. Trust me, because it's a story too."
