I can't stop staring at the details, like the mesmerizing moon and stars in the eye: I also felt beyond grateful when I realized, as soon as I started reading, that The Longest Night puts on paper exactly what's been circling my mind for the past year, and only recently begun receding bit by bit. If I ever throw away my journals from that period in my life, I know I’m safe with just turning to this book since it rawly and meticulously captures all the (tiring) stages you go through, from curiosity to obsession to realistically realizing to growing away and moving on. The 'About the Author' section voiced it best: “her voice will move you quite simply because it sounds so much like the voice inside your own heart.” Now, comes my favorite part of sharing some of the brilliant pieces that really settled in my heart: This perfectly captures the whirlwind your mind goes through when infatuated with someone. The constant vivid imagery is exhausting... This!! Gets!! It!! The philosophy of a person holding meaning only in relation to something. Also: names are never just names... Realizing that you've matured for the better and "you're not the same person anymore" is pivotal. Though some poems came to resemble each other a bit too closely the more I read one because of the set theme of heartbreak (there's only so many ways to describe missing someone...), I left The Longest Night in solidarity and stronger in spirit. I'd recommend it for fans of This Is Me Letting You Go by Heidi Priebe. Note: I’m an Amazon Affiliate.

It takes quite a lot for poems, as well as an author’s view and writing style, to truly stand out to me. The Longest Night definitely emerges from the mix, with Suzuki’s writing being very strong and attention-grabbing, showing that she is very skilled in her craft. Her work touches on relatable topics and emotions in her own unique and eloquent way. This was a beautiful and very poignant collection that really resonated with me and exceeded my already high expectations. The poems in this collection focus on the heartbreak that comes when we are forced to be separated from those we love. They are not only meant to reach readers who have specifically suffered the crumbling of a romantic relationship, as I find so many poetry collections concentrate very heavily on. Suzuki’s writing covers the emotional journey that comes with any type of loss, producing a message that will bridge any gap that one might find within during these painful circumstances. Through her words, we are taken on a universally understandable trip through the complexities of both human grief and healing. Suzuki tells a story in small snapshots. Starting with “Sunset” and resolving at “First Light”, we are carried through the night we are suddenly and often unexpectedly plunged into—a seemingly endless one that stretches out for miles before us. It is here that we can feel the most intense loneliness we have ever felt, but Suzuki strives to remind us how this is not actually the case. It is true that no one person will ever understand every part of another’s personal grief but, as humans, we all love, lose, and grieve. It is the general scope of emotion that unites all of us. These poems serve as a light to move toward, as a hand to hold along the way, and as a glance back at how far we have come and how strong we are. In regard to my own personal experience reading this collection, I happened to be drawn to pick this up at a time when I desperately needed these words and this message. I read this entire collection mere days after the greatest period of loss that I have ever suffered in my life thus far. There is no way to fully express what these poems did for me or how they touched my life—it was a very powerful and private journey. However, I learned firsthand the comfort that emanates from each one. I was able to have a wholly intimate relationship with it, which is quite rare to go through to this degree when reading poetry at any given time. Whether you are in the midst of this long night or you have emerged into the day, I very highly recommend reading this collection.

    *Thank you Ranata Suzuki for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Everyone knows that I love poetry! There’s just something about poetry books that always, always, tug at me. And this book, The Longest Night, is surely one of the best I’ve ever read this year.

There’s just something about poetry books that always, always, tug at me. And this book, The Longest Night, is surely one of the best I’ve ever read this year. It’s a sad collection of feelings; the longing, the hurt, the heartbreak and sadness of a person left behind. I think my heart had been aching the whole time just by reading the words. The Depths I was always so cautious. But you … you just dived headfirst into everything. You dived into my life and made waves. Then you left me alone … and I couldn’t swim. I couldn’t swim. I really thank the author for giving me her wonderful book, for sharing to everyone these words that will surely have an impact in their life. It’s raw and honest, very relatable especially to those who have loved so much, given everything to a person who eventually left. It’s a very sad collection, for me anyway, but I love the positiveness it tells that somehow accepting that someone has already left will help you heal and that even though you’ve already forgotten, there’s still a part of you that will always belong to that person. Ever After Call me a dreamer or an optimist but I refuse to give up hope that somewhere out there, there’s a place where you and I are happy together. I don’t know if it’s another time or another world, I only know that there had to exist a place where everything turns out okay for us. I have to believe that … that somewhere out there the universe gives us our happy ending. Again, I want to thank the author for sending me a copy of her book. She’s been nice throughout even though it took two attempts to get the book to me. I really enjoyed reading her work and it feels so personal on her part that her words are now a part of everyone else. Highly recommended for those who love poetry!

It got me through. I really recommend everyone to read this raw and beautiful collection that anyone can relate to. Its beautiful and real in every aspect of those words.

    It took forever to get to read this book, thanks to the funny mailing system that we have here in Nigeria, I couldn’t get it even after two attempts , and when I finally did, life happened and it took forever to finish it, but I finally did and the word that was on my mind all through was a roller coaster ride, that’s what reading it felt like. The dedication was the first thing that attracted me, it was unique and different, and really beautiful. The book is in three parts — Sunset, Darkness and It took forever to get to read this book, thanks to the funny mailing system that we have here in Nigeria, I couldn’t get it even after two attempts , and when I finally did, life happened and it took forever to finish it, but I finally did and the word that was on my mind all through was a roller coaster ride, that’s what reading it felt like. The dedication was the first thing that attracted me, it was unique and different, and really beautiful. The book is in three parts — Sunset, Darkness and First Light, with two bonuses — A Parallel Universe and Addendum. Sunset was about heartbreak and a love that didn’t last. Darkness contained details of the heartbreak properly, what it felt like, the bitterness vividly. First light, which was my favorite part had details of healing, closure and living right again. For every book I read, there’s a particular thing that I look out for among others , and that’s what makes it different from the last one, and that thing about The Longest Night was its depth, the clarity, imagery and honesty got to me. It seemed like a book about someone who made a decision to love and really did, hard and sincerely without expecting anything in return, and in fact knowing fully well that it wouldn’t last but diving into it still, to end up broken and later got around it and managed it. About the bonus poems, I loved the delicate way that A Parallel Universe was written, and I loved the light in Addendum, I loved the optimism, it filled me with this sense of triumph for the girl in the book. The longest night is both a light and a disturbing read, the flow and the beauty of the words would interest you, but also hit you and make you think deeply. I enjoyed reading it and i think you will too. Finally, It would be selfish of me not to say a big fat thank you to the author, Ranata Suzuki for her efforts to get the book to me, even to want to get it to me, she is the first author to send me a copy of her book for free and it meant a lot, thank you so much!

    I had been waiting for her book to come out for AGES and I was so excited to get it in the mail yesterday. I stayed up till 2am and read it all in one go. OMG it's so sad, yet beautiful. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone whose loved and lost someone or even just anyone who loves eloquent words. Highlights include the pictures (they really help set the mood/tone I think) and poems 'the weary traveller', 'when do you let the bird go', 'tu me manques', 'we used to be so close' and 'des I had been waiting for her book to come out for AGES and I was so excited to get it in the mail yesterday.

It was like reading my own diary (if id ever written one which I haven't) but really... wow. I can't recommend this book enough! So beautifully done.

    I savored this book and also held myself back from it as a form of self preservation. It’s raw and heartbreaking. I can't imagine being so in love with someone and have them leave me and know they were still out there in the world without me. I do know loss though and that loss reverberates in Ranata’s words. In many poems, like Excess Baggage, where she wrote of love, I read of dogs.

    The tittle of the book, 'The Longest Night' made itself so relatable to me that I just couldn't help myself but to read it anyways. And what turned out to be is that my every emotion and whatever I've felt so far in my life was transformed into words. I loved the words and the way they were articulated. This book is just more than lovely. Thanks to the Author! Sana Rabbani

    I really really enjoyed reading this. I mostly liked it because someone I may of loved or whatever left for college. It was an unrequited love but love never less. I’ve been up and down since I last saw him. This book helped me a lot. The faces felt very familiar to what I went through and the ending seemed to be the most impactful because I’m going through that right now. The moving on. One of my first real poetry books. Loved it.

    Started reading her words back in 2017. It was a period of vulnerability of me when I was fighting myself and killing my emotions with rationalism and I thought I was all alone. But somehow, maybe a coincidence, drew me to her profile and I started resonating with her words. After reading those close to heart and close to life excerpts/poetries I felt even if I'm ripped at every edge, I'm a masterpiece. Slowly, her words started depicting every part of my psyche and broken pieces. Slowly I start Started reading her words back in 2017.

I realize instead of self destruction for all the wrongs that happened to you could choose to be an art only if you would be soft on yourself. I've read and I'll keep on reading her words till her very last excerpt and till my last breath. Reading and resonating with her I can finally say that finally "I let the bird go". Much love to Ranata Suzuki for her works ✨.

    "The Longest Night" is not only one of the best collections of poetry I have ever read, but it's also my all time favorite book. Ranata's poem, "Why I still write" showed up on my Instagram the morning after the person I loved most, shattered my heart into thousands of pieces. I didn't know her work prior, but upon reading it, I immediately felt a connection to her and her words. "Why I still write" will always hold a special place in my heart.

Although each page in her book is devastatingly sad, my heart feels comforted knowing I am not alone in my suffering. Simply knowing there is someone who understands what I have been through, and has the beautiful ability to articulate those feelings into words, is a profound connection I am thankful to have and will never forget. I definitely recommend "The Longest Night" to anyone who's experienced loss or heartbreak of any kind.

    This is one of those things that are simple and yet connect with you so intricately. It's almost as if Ranata takes the words right out of your soul and inks them on paper. This one is a keeper.It speaks to you in the words you've long forgotten. An extreme sense of deja vu kicks in with each chapter. Thank god it wasn't around during highschool years, 😅 would've consumed a major chunk of my vulnerable teenage mind.

    I am following some writers and your words touched my heart. Reading your lines makes me feel the real pain and makes me awestruck with the amazing talent you possess to pen down the feelings to paper. When I really feel low and broken, reading your poetries gives me strength to regain inner conscience which I seem to loose. Thank you for your kind gesture and motivating us thoroughly. God bless you. Regards Anindita Kunti
