Where does Streetlife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book ranks in the top ten of books I have read.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Streetlife?
This is not a book of moments and scenes. It is a book of life; real life as it is lived. It is history in the making day-to-day. We read about kings, generals, world leaders and great people in our history books. We memorize dates and and great moments but this is a book of how life changes at the street level which is where we truly live. It is full of information and bits and pieces of facts that bring you through from the late 19th century to the mid 20th century introducing us to the simplest things such as the 'teenager' which did not exist before WWII and disposable income. Prior to then young people simply worked with thier families then married and life went on. Where did the soda shop come from? What did teens do before the War? How was seating arranged before lighting was available in large theaters? This book answers questions you never had and astonishes you in its simplicity. I enjoyed this book immensley.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I had a strong desire to re-read this book once I finished it.
