Poverty Safari Reviews

  • Sara
    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 ...

    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 c...

    The book start of very well with a powerful description of living with an abusive mother. The author really excels at describing unsettling, moving scenes and his personal experiences of poverty. There is an interesting section on identity politics and the intersection with class (which is often ign...

However, despite peeing my pants with excitement on the day the finished product finally arrived through my door...

    After reading a number of articles both by and about Darren McGarvey, I must admit that I went into Poverty Safari with high expectations. It’s perhaps because of these expectations that I came away from the book feeling a little disappointed. Before I go any further with actually reviewing the...

    Admittedly, I was a little suspicious when I notices the endorsements by the Financial Times and this being a Sunday Times bestseller. But as I am trying to be more open minded (lol, kidding, I am not, open mind just invites all sorts of propaganda) I gave this a go."Poverty Safari - Understanding t...
