REVIEW of GOTTA FIND A HOME by Dennis Cardiff
FIVE STARS
 
It’s a most unusual concept for a book. It takes us into an underworld we often glimpse but shudder from exploring. Personally, I thank the author, Dennis Cardiff, for taking my hand and leading me to a greater understanding of the homeless as human beings. There but for the grace of God go many of us.
 
Dennis is obviously a driven and magnanimous person. It’s enough that he works on behalf of the under-privileged. It’s a bonus that he’s written their story. And what a tale it is. All life is there: pathos; humour; the full range of emotions, desires, disappointments. These are ordinary people without one ordinary thing – money.
 
The book’s anecdotes are presented through conversation. The central character is Dennis Cardiff himself and we come to learn how his crusade has changed him personally. Dennis also provides some entertaining poetry at various points.
For me, this book made a welcome break from fiction and took me to a different universe much more effectively than any sci-fi could have done.
