Reviews: Reviewed by Irene Watson for Reader Views (1/09What a wonderful book of poetry to touch the heart, deepen the spirit,and stir up the emotions! Joyce Akesson, gifted poet and extraordinaire, puts into words not many have the talent to achieve. Her writing is clear, profound, and creative, while at the same time poignant. From Feathered Quill Book Reviews Reviewed by: Lauren Victor Review Date: January 22, 2009 At a fundamental level, the collection explores the many dimensions of love and what it is to be human. Akesson travels through hopes and fears in the face of love, yet she also delves into existential questions that many readers will appreciate. She easily flows between asking, "Are we playing at something/or are we doing it for real?" and more figurative concepts like that of Chaos who "sometimes glares at the world/while smoking his cigar." There are many moments like these that grant depth to her work beyond the surface features of love. ... Ultimately Love's Thrilling Dimensions is an enjoyable float through well-crafted phrases, appealing cadence, and expressive emotion. Akesson shares truths about life and love in a way that reflects modern life and is embraceable by modern audiences.
