Roman Barnes lives among the homeless and next to the fortunate, at the edge of hope. Among Pigeons is his journey from rags to revelation. His story exposes dueling societies that share more than they are willing to admit. In a weak economy many people are struggling to remain afloat, just as Roman, and many are one decision from living among pigeons.

Apr 30, 2010Readers who knew of his poems and writings to his lovely wife Vanessa and heard Dr. Woods speak in church before this work will be well pleased with his new venture Among Pigeons. Those coming to Dr. Woods for the first time will be equally enthralled by his story-telling skill. Dr. Lawrence Woods has developed his narrative voice to a degree unusual in writers of any genre. He wastes no words, yet still draws pictures of compelling intensity. His characters are both archetypal and highly individual; however far they may fall from the reader's own experience, they are sympathetic and engaging. Dr. Woods’s style combines fast-paced narrative with deeper introspection. Unlike some writers, however, he never allowed his social and moral observations to interrupt the story. Instead, he made them integral to the plot, teaching the reader without preaching, often without the reader even realizing there is a lesson occurring. In Among Pigeons, the Trojan horse becomes an art form and Woods... More > is its undisputed master. D. A. Graham< Less
Apr 14, 2010By Shannon Bielasz So many of us think of ourselves as so different from the homeless population. Among Pigeons brings the plight of the homeless into clear focus. The author does an amazing job of painting a picture of the everyday struggles that homeless people face. It reminds us of the everyday luxuries that we often take for granted. In his writing, Dr. Wood does an amazing job of drawing the reader into the life of the homeless and making you feel accountable for the fate of Roman Barnes. The book further higlights that homelesness knows no bounds, it can affect anyone at any time. After reading this you will likely look at the next homeless person you see standing on the street corner and give compassionate thought to how he may have come to be there.
Mar 20, 2010From the outset, the author ensnares the reader by transforming himself from "John-the-Bum," into the brutally beaten man, later to be known as "Roman Barnes." Gritty, cutting-edge storytelling by a man who writes not to merely entertain, but to educate. "Among Pigeons" catapults the reader from creature-comfort to utter chaos; releasing them, finally...changed.
Mar 20, 2010Among Pigeons is a remarkable read. Not only did it keep me on the edge of my seat, I got so entrenched in the story, I kept forgetting that it was fiction. This book speaks to a level of truth with brutal honesty that should spark all readers into action -- all that it takes for evil to prevail is for good men (and women) to do nothing.
Mar 11, 2010As I wipe the tears from my eyes, your book should become a national bestseller to open the eyes of everyone! You for sure explored the intimate concerns we all should have for our homeless! You make it clear throughout your writings, life is not easy, its full of difficulties and challenges, but we are all given an opportunity to grow. If we were already born with all the answers and abilities to solve life's problems, there would be no purpose to the journey. Thank you my good friend for the insights and encouragement to move forward in faith more boldly, and more assuredly meet life's trial and traumas. God does not close one door without opening another! This book addressed my deep hunger to find the open door, and give meaning to my daily life and the lives around me! Your personal approach should help to make your name a household name to millions of Americans! Great work! With love Metre
Mar 1, 2010Among Pigeons is an Awesome book to read! Once you begin reading,it is very difficult to put down. Thank you Dr. Wood for writing this Amazing story.
Feb 21, 2010Among Pigeons is a remarkable read. The creative writing skills are commendable, all the more so Dr. Wood being from a scientific background, where the creative writing is mainly nonexistent and the factual is stressed. Excellent marks for Among Pigeons and Dr. Wood.
