A Predisposition for Madness by Aurelio Rico Lopez III
The indication of suffering with madness under peculiar situations; dire consequences and a baggage of other genre bending horror verse with a propensity of violence. This substantial collection depicts a deathly theme that arrays in no particular order and inks madness in all its forms. Aurelio's lunacy is sometimes gruesome, haunting, or cadaverous—the tendency that something is likely to happen is heavy and leaves no burdens behind.
I bought this based on Nikolas' review, and he nailed it. This was a stellar collection of various horrors and monsters. The situations span a wide variety of scenes that are self contained and well crafted. Loved it!
A Strange Surprise
Aurelio Rico Lopez III has provided readers with a robust assortment of free-verse narrative poems. There are literally dozens of stories and set pieces conveyed through poetry in this collection, and it's well worth the time spent properly digesting each and every one. A Predisposition for Madness has certainly put this writer on my radar in a good way. In these pages, you'll discover monsters both human and far from it, you'll witness new pandemics and sickness ravaging households and the world, you'll see warfare and apocalyptic scenarios played out, and you'll encounter things far more challenging to describe. There's most certainly something in here that will suit the tastes of any reader, assuming that reader enjoys poetry. Even if you don't typically enjoy it, I'd recommend giving this collection a chance. The title is an apt one, the cadence of the poems coming across almost as if the stream of consciousness ravings of a madman in a padded cell, alternating between mumbles and screams.
