“Each piece of his writing evokes a vivid emotion as we, the readers, glimpse into thoughts, feelings, and memories.”

Ren’s “Cryptic Clockwork” is a beautiful, brilliant masterpiece. His story is not for the faint of heart, but that is what makes it so brutally honest. There are tragedies, traumas, and sorrows depicted throughout, from beginning to end. Each piece of his writing evokes a vivid emotion as we, the readers, glimpse into thoughts, feelings, and memories.

As I was reading, I found that I needed to take breaks to soak in all his words. There were many moments of sadness and grief for him, and moments when I cheered him on as he revealed himself bit by bit through each writing piece. I really enjoyed seeing his personal growth and realizations. He wrote from his heart and has such a way with words that it’s difficult for me to describe. It’s just beautiful.

While his life ended much too soon, I am so grateful that, through his writings, he left behind his voice for us to enjoy. I am thankful I got a chance to read his book and I will forever be impacted by how raw and vulnerable and deep his story is. I would definitely re-read this again.
