Jan 7, 2015Among Pigeons is an awesome book that is enlightening and inspiring. I highly recommend this book; it really communicates the basics of humanity in regards to our vital need for relationship with one another. It also highlights how we often starve ourselves and others of potentially benefiting relationship experiences due to perspectives of economics/class, ethnicity, race, education, etc. This book achieves all the basic desires and expectations one might have reading such a piece; adventure, mystery, suspense, laughter, heroism, and love. I would summarize it's most powerful point referencing a bible verse, "Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it." (Heb 13:2 NLT) If you have any reading in you, check this one out!

May 7, 2012I enjoyed the Among Pigeons it is a wonderful read and as soon as I started to read it I couldn't put it down. Dr. Lawerence Wood the author tells the story just as it is today. It has opened my eyes to the homelessness more than I have have expected. It makes me want to do more in my community as I see more and more unfortunate individuals who are struggling to stay alive. I look forward to the book number two, well done Dr. Wood.
Aug 4, 2011I enjoyed Among pigeons. I love "who dunnits" and this does not disappoint. The author weaves the characters into the story with ease as if you are really there. The story itself took me to an unexpected, but exciting journey. I liked it very much, and look forward to more from Lawrence Wood. Bravo! Bravo!
May 25, 2011Such an AMAZING book. Being in Law Enforcement, I could relate to the solving of a crime with all the pieces coming together, also dealing with homelessness in my community. It made me realize also that homelessness can happen to anyone depending on their circumstances. One never knows what happened to make someone homeless. They are all humans and are doing their best with the resources they have. We need to slow down and really evaluate our own lives. It made me stop and think, if I was in that position, would I want someone to acknowledge me or offer me a cup of coffee. Most definitely I would. Thank you so much for opening my awareness of others who are less fortunate, either by homelessness, mental health or some other unforeseen reason. Job well done, Mr. Woods. Can't wait for the sequel.
