Couldn't recommend this book more
on June 18, 2015
This book was great- gripping and thought-provoking. It's partially a fascinating dystopian history lesson, partially an emotionally poignant narrative about a boy destroyed by the dystopian circumstances. The book's clear purpose is to give a look at the idea of factory farming (and even meat consumption) from a different angle. I will be entirely honest: this book made me fully commit to vegetarianism. Before, I had dabbled (my girlfriend is vegetarian, so much of our cooking together is meatless), but this book provided me a perspective I could not ignore.
If you're dipping your toes in animal empathy or leaning towards vegetarianism, I highly recommend this book. Hell, if you're even remotely concerned about the idea of factory farming, please give Animals a read.
