Tunnel People Reviews
Far better then Jenether Toths Mole people, Teun Voeten actually lived with the underground population dwelling in abandoned subway tunnels in New York. This was an extended adventure as he came back years later to follow up on their lives to see how many had transitioned to apartments with the help of programs. A brilliant study from a thoughtful caring author.
Wonderful book. Super sad but a great read.
Fascinating account of what goes (went) on under the sidewalks of New York City.
Couldn't put this book down !
Amazing book. The author is a great anthropologist. Gives a lot of insight into why some people are the way they are and allows us to empathize with them.
I enjoyed learning about the way of survival of the tunnel people.
This is an easy read and a great read. Very interesting stuff. I loved the book and I don't get to read much.
