Poverty Safari Reviews

  • M J

    Darren articulates perfectly the truth. We need to take responsibility for ourselves rather than self delusion and blame we put on others. What a great book. What an epic journey of the author's insight.

  • Ophelia Sings

    Everyone should read this book.

    Rather histrionic, perhaps, but the truth. Shocking, visceral, angry and anger-inducing, Poverty Safari shines a light into the darkest corners of society, highlighting the forgotten, the overlooked. If we have anything about us, we should see this book as a rallying call; it is surely time, as Grenfell still smoulders and the queues at the food banks snake ever longer, to examine where we as a society are going wrong.

    Fluently and beautifully written, Poverty Safari is challenging and enlightening and a very, very important book - and an urgently timely one.

    My thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Very interesting and informative. Well written by an admirably forward thinker. Would recommend to anyone interested in politics and /or sociology

    This book is about the inequalities within British society that for some people are the reality of their everyday lives whilst the rest of the population live in ignorance of the harshness of life for quite a lot of society. It is a book that i feel should be compulsory reading for the decision makers then perhaps they would have more of an understanding and maybe more of a willingness to try and help The book also dispels the myth that people who live in poverty do so due to some fault of thei

    This book is about the inequalities within British society that for some people are the reality of their everyday lives whilst the rest of the population live in ignorance of the harshness of life for quite a lot of society. It is a book that i feel should be compulsory reading for the decision makers then perhaps they would have more of an understanding and maybe more of a willingness to try and help The book also dispels the myth that people who live in poverty do so due to some fault of their own making and that it is the fault of the capitalist system. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in social issues

    Poetic and truthful

    I wanted to read this as I vaguely know who the author was. It opened my eyes and gave me a completely different view of many aspects of life. I grew up (a few years earlier) a couple of miles down the road from the author, but our experiences could not have been more different. I had no idea the type of lifestyle described here was still going on. This was a reality check for me, and challenged much of my thinking. I did find it quite hard going, as I do like my reading to be a lot lighter and

    I wanted to read this as I vaguely know who the author was. It opened my eyes and gave me a completely different view of many aspects of life. I grew up (a few years earlier) a couple of miles down the road from the author, but our experiences could not have been more different. I had no idea the type of lifestyle described here was still going on. This was a reality check for me, and challenged much of my thinking. I did find it quite hard going, as I do like my reading to be a lot lighter and fiction, but I'm glad I came across this, and think middle class kids in Glasgow should be challenged to read this.

    Great title, with some strong ideas strongly made. However I found it over-wordy and repetitive, and by the end felt as if I'd been bludgeoned over the head with a blunt instrument a bit too much. Glad I'd read it but wouldn't want to read it again.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I don't really know what I was expecting when I went into this, but I was left disappointed anyway. I suppose I was looking for a social commentary on the working class and poverty stricken people of Britain, but this read more like a political statement.

    Granted, it was better than a channel 5 documentary that exploits the vulnerable, but I didn't really find it all that interesting either. Good intentions, but it didn't really de
