    A gentle poignant read that will stir the emotions of the reader and gives a unique insight into a deeply personal journey towards reaching a greater level of consciousness, acceptance and hope. I loved reading the poems in this book - each one crafted with a great deal of love and thought and which resonated with me deeply. Highly recommended!

    A thought provoking collection of poetry presented in a time-lapse like documentary. From the word go, it engages your thoughts on a self realization journey. Whether you are a student, a teacher, a writer or just love reading like me, I highly recommend Waking Season. It's deep and it will challenge your life.

    A beautiful collection encapsulating a multitude of emotions. It's a very rare talent to be able to find the perfect words to describe a moment in time with so much accuracy,awareness and delicate intricacy. Shanil is able to do that time and time again in this purposeful compilation.My personal favourite of the collection is 'As Children', having been there and experienced the same memories in our youth, it is so poignant to have it cemented in stone with Shanil's words.Within these pages you find the emotional highs and lows that we all face, and the coming of age of a poet and writer. Within these pages, there is a truth for all to take home which is extremely powerful. Highly recommended.

    This is a deeply personal collection that can be dark, and overall springs hope. Waking Season takes the reader on a journey across the globe and through time. There's a longing that's sweet and hopeful. This collection makes me smile and reminisce. I hope I'll get a chance to hear the poet read from this volume.

    Shanil Samarakoon has such an incredibly beautiful and powerful way of writing. His words took me on his journey - I could imagine sitting next to him on the plane and the other places he so vividly described; I could feel the depth and essence of his experiences. Shanil, thank you for sharing your story and journey. A beautiful, soul-filling collection of writing, highly recommended.
