This was an excellent, but frustrating, book because the topic is at best depressing. The author does a thorough job detailing how various subjects that he follows through the book become entangled in the eviction cycle. I wish he had focused more on the epilogue topic of what can be done, what other countries are doing, etc. earlier in the book. The narration was outstanding.
I minored in Sociology and I find this book fascinating from a cultural perspective. I really felt present in the stories. It's an emotional rollercoater of sorts. I felt anxiety, shedded some tears and laughed a little, too. I am thankful that Matthew took on this field study and did such a wonderful job doing so. The narration was superb also.
Narration is at record speed. If you likethat pace. It like it’s 1. It like it’s at 2.0
I was trying to use this in my classroom until I got to the foul language, including the f- word. Thank...
This was a very interesting book, however, I think it's probably a better book to read and not listen to. WIth that said, I loved the narrator, he was fantastic. I felt that the story dragged on a bit and I was ready to move onto the next book when it was over.
A truly eye opening book and a must read for anyone in the United States trying to understand the housing situation and poverty. The narration was superb! Let me give you a warning, this book will definitely make you understand what it is like living paycheck to paycheck except this is SSI or Welfare. I learned a lot of the hardship and potential solutions from this book. My hats off the the writer who did a fabulous job! A must read.
Such a thoughtful and patient exploration of a pre-homeless community in Milwaukee. I will never complain about anything in my life ever again. Narration was perfect. The bool--amazing. Sonetimed difficult to listen to because of the unending and maddening levels of hardship many of the people face.
Really engaging and the narrator really brings you into the book with his own way
