Starke Identifikation mit dem Protagonisten. Teilweise vom Stil her wie Robinson Crusoe, ständiges Aufzählen von Gedbeträgen, Arbeitszeiten, Besitztümern usw. Keine Verbindung zwischen den Paris und London.-Teil. Keine weiblichen Charaktere.
The detailed descriptions of expenses and strategies to find places to sleep, ways to get some money to survive until some better solution arrives and the opinions about the author's experience made me try and see things and people with more attention. It did not change dramatically my point of view, but it certainly made me think more about it. I would suggest this book to anyone in my social circle, because I believe it might be hard for them to be sympathetic for the same reasons it is hard for me.
A little too opinionated to be good. The characters are character-y, for sure, but the drawn-out factual descriptions of the life of British "tramps," their slang and way of living drag down the narrative. I utterly lost interest after the narrator leaves Paris for London, as his development halts at that point.
