Reviewed by Astrid Iustulin for Readers' Favorite

Some authors are more comfortable writing about their feelings in prose, while others prefer poetry. However, some writers love both literary genres and take pleasure in creating books that include texts both in prose and verse. This is the case with Labyrinth, Eenam Vang's fascinating and unusual collection. Within its pages, Vang shares with readers her feelings about life, focusing her attention in particular on topics such as friendship, death, and love. Often, the texts evoke eerie atmospheres, and overall, Labyrinth presents itself as a collection inspired by the most mysterious part of the human soul.

What impressed me most when I read Labyrinth was Eenam Vang's ability to create intense and often disturbing atmospheres. This can be really hard to find, and it is even rarer for a writer to develop these skills in such a perfect way. Labyrinth is not a collection for readers who are looking for quiet feelings and serene situations. Nothing within its gloomy word-pictures evokes tranquillity. On the contrary, Labyrinth is a book dedicated to the discomfort that a person finds difficult to express without the tools provided by prose and verse. This collection is praiseworthy because Vang has demonstrated here her extraordinary sensitivity. She is commendable for the choice of themes and also for how she developed them. Labyrinth is an intense read, and I recommend it to anyone who has complicated feelings to express. Perhaps, thanks to Vang, they will find a way to make themselves heard.
