A Pho Love Story by Loan Le (Book Review)

A Pho Love Story

As much as I love to write about books when it comes to reviews, I feel that my thoughts rarely come out as I want them to. Since the typical format doesn’t work for me, why not change it? Which is how I came up with the idea of reviewing a book through poetry. I’m spiting it in 3 poems Family, Dreams and Love and the third will be about Food since both families in this novel own a restaurant.

Each one has its rules and laws

That comes with character flaws

In you, they will have fate

And for you

They will always wait

To hug you away

From the world’s hate

Dream girl dream

And let that light

In your eyes beam

You had to fight

For the real you

To be seen

Forbidden Love

When love is forbidden

It needs to be hidden

A kiss on the cheek

That makes your legs

Go weak

With the need for the word

To speak


Family Setting the Table for Dinner

Every meal around a table

Sharing your feelings

You are able

It takes one meal

For someone good

To feel

I like how this review has turned out, and I hope that some of you enjoy it too. I ended up giving this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

  1. Family dinner time, like real love, all so foreign to me. My folks know I disagree with their general right-of-moderate views (pro-choice, pro-LGB, but conservative fiscally and are okay if a state curbs trans rights), but because I went full-monty on the “gender affirmative surger(ies)” they respect my “choice” to live as a man because I paid for everything on my own, despite them letting me live with them for free all these years.

    1. Mine have different views, but mum gets that I’m her son because my mental health was really bad before I came out
