*****"In this collection, visionary poet Montney opens the doorway to the soul to uncover love's uncharted essence. ... A good writer uses his life as a camera to help influence his writing; a great writer synthesizes these experiences into touchstones to create a path of knowledge for the reader.... Montney certainly falls into the latter category. ... A great read for lovers, lovers of poetry and those with an interest in philosophy."--Kirkus Indie Book Review, December 27, 2011 [http://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/marvin-richard-montney/the-seeker-is-the-sought/].
*****"What sets The Seeker is the Sought apart from other collections of poetry is Montney's ambitious direction. With each 'cluster,' comes a carefully calculated objective. With deft rhythm and a both vivid and powerful capability to bring image to language, Montney's poems evoke an almost unnatural curiosity. Each poem in this collection suggests a [powerful] intimacy
capable of reaching a diverse range of readers. In the end, Montney's intriguing and ambitious insights into the psyche of love are a success in that they stir enough emotion in their reader to be deemed worth reading and rereading."--Reviewed (anonymously) by Daniel Kine, published poet and author of the novel, Between Nowhere and Happiness, (Smallhead Press, 2010), in Indie Literature Now, October 5, 2011, http://indieliteraturetoday.blogspot.com.
*****"Montney's poems individually seek to reduce the gaps, allowing intimacy. And the universality of his ardent collection overall will widely appeal to readers who are seeking to appreciate and make sense of intimate relationships and to...'drink deeply from that spring which breaks forth when the I of you is shed.'"--"[R]eviewed by J. Alpha," [pseudonym of published poet Janet Paszkowski, poet of Alpharetta, Georgia], The US Review of Books, under "reviews," 12/20/2010, www.theUSreview.com/reviews/Seeker-Montney.html.
*****"Moving and charming, [The Seeker Is The Sought] is a collection that should be sought itself."--Reviewed by Margaret Lane, Midwest Book Review, Reviewer's Bookwatch, Margaret's Bookshelf, March 1, 2011, www.midwestbookreview/rbw/mar_11.htm.
*****"Montney's poetry lets us know that ordinary life offers possibilities so that we can give meaning to our lives and to those that are dear to us both in the past and present. Even after 82 pages, his book leaves you wanting more."--Reviewed by Cheri C., Five Star Customer Review, April 3, 2011, www.amazon.com > Books > Literature & Fiction > Poetry.
*****"Montney takes the reader on a journey in which the speaker evolves, and he uses his extensive knowledge of Western and Indian philosophy to inform his poems."--Review and author interview by Natasha Lee, (San Francisco) Sunset Beacon, February 2011, www.sunsetbeacon.com/archives/SunsetBeacon/2011editions/Feb11/poems.html.
*****"'The Seeker Is the Sought' is sure to find an audience in the literary circuit because there is so much symbolism."--Reviewed by Gary Roen, Midwest Book Review, Reviewer's Bookwatch, Gary's Bookshelf, June 2011, www.midwestbookreview.com/rbw/jun_11/htm.
*****"Enjoy the poetry you like in this very personal selection, such as 'The Arrival,' a wonderful poem about family longing with a clever nod to Jane Austen. It alone is a very worthwhile selection."--Reviewed anonymously, in The San Francisco Book Review, July 5, 2011, www.sanfranciscobookreview.com/poetry-short-stories/the-seeker-is-the-sought-poe....
*****"I enjoyed reading this book because I became deeply involved in what the author was saying and he made me understand through his poems that love is not just a statement, but it is an intense emotional, mental, and physical action."--Reviewed by Lisa M. for ReadersFavorite.com, 2011, http://readersfavorite.com/review/4258.
