I Felt a Funeral, in My Brain Reviews
You've got to be in for the ride, and I was. This is a book that changes forms as you read it but never to trick or confuse you. It makes both intellectual and emotional sense by reflecting the ways we actually think and feel about our families, friends, lovers, idols, and selves.
How in the world do I review this book? It's a love poem; it's a eulogy; it's poetry; it's prose; it's uplifting; it's heart-cracking. I'm one of the luckiest people in the world to know Will Walton personally, and it's such rare and wonderful magic to read a book that so beautifully reflects the author's empathy and authenticity. Will Walton is all heart, and so is this book. You should add this to your to-read list right now.
Two feet on the floor. To be present, be.
I’ve never really read a book like this before.
what I got from it is that even in your darkest times and when you think your world is just shattering apart, you’re never ever truly alone and it would do wonders to remember that (which I think is really true and important so I really liked that).
it’s just that the formatting and the timeline was really unique and jumpy and left me a bit confused when I tried to sort through the events in my head.

Not for the casual reader, this book asks a bit of its audience as the narrative unfolds in a non-linear manner, mixing past and present, poetry and prose. But worth the effort of a careful read, it's a hard-hitting exploration of love, loss, and the power of the written word.
One of my most anticipated releases of 2018, I FELT A FUNERAL, IN MY BRAIN is novel that reads like a poem. Avery is lost, trying to make sense of everything going on in his life. Inspired by the poems he reads, he decides to write his way through it all. Covering topics such as addiction, death and sexuality, Will Walton has woven a unique storytelling experience that is both brutally honest and honestly beautiful. I could not recommend this one enough.
Quite difficult to read because of the fragmented narrative but it still has the punch anyway.
