HASH(0x960df540) out of 5 stars Amazing. 22 Jun. 2014
By Naturelover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book of poetry for myself as one of two 21st birthday gifts to myself (the other was lingerie). I'm honestly having a hard time deciding which I'm more in love with, which is saying something. This book debut by Choi is gorgeous, inspiring, intimate. She packs such a punch in so few words: "The work of love / becomes its own reason."

I've been having a bit of writer's block with my own poetry but this book makes me want to write. I'm a huge fan of Choi's work and this is no exception.

HASH(0x95ad593c) out of 5 stars Beautiful Language, Beautiful Message 18 Jun. 2014
By Doran K Song - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Franny Choi's Floating, Brilliant, Gone is one of the best poetry books I've read. It's an easy read with few extravagant or complicated words and yet the story she forms with everyday speech is amazing and tell very complicated tales. Many of the poems in Floating, Brilliant, Gone reflect Choi's experience in the U.S. as a woman, Asian-American, or both. The book's personal feel made me feel like I was taking a peek into Franny's diary entries (exceedingly well-written diary entries, mind you). I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a bit of poetry, and her live performances are even better! If none of this convinces you though, you should buy this book for Franny Choi's re-imagining of Lil Wayne's Pussy Monster which is equal parts of comedic genius and feminist critique.

A fantastic poetry collection-- I found it fresh, relevant, poignant, truly moving. Very few young poets can capture the timeless themes that Franny successfully does in "Floating, Brilliant, Gone."
