    Night after night Mike and Sam found their beds under bridges and on the streets. They were forced to depend on the generosity and kindness of strangers as they panhandled to sustain their existence. For more than five months, the pair experienced firsthand the extreme pains of hunger, the constant uncertainty and danger of living on the streets, exhaustion, depression, and social rejection-and all of this by their own choice.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Under the Overpass the most enjoyable?

    The content. The idea of these guys doing something so extreme is amazing. Hearing what they encountered along the way is what kept me listening


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was adequate. I could tell right off that it was read by the author because the reading felt rushed. But it was clear and easy to understand. I was able to follow along and the content took over the listening experience for me anyway.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't know that I had an extreme reaction, but I did have a very strong, emotional reaction. It challenged my tendency to "look the other way" when I see less fortunate people around me. Now instead of trying to get away from them I am challenged to find someway to engage in their life and/or to help in some way.
