My main issue with the book is that it clearly wasn't edited. I had to re-read a handful of sentences because they just didn't make sense..mostly due to missing/extra words and missing/extra commas. I'm not trying to be super picky, but I expect published books to not have issues on just about every page. I don't think that's too much to ask.
The author also uses sarcasm to get some of her points across, and that makes it more difficult to read. "Wait, is she being serious? Oh, no, she's just kidding. Ha...ha?"
Even though I'm vegan and I agree with what the author was writing (for the most part), I came away with a guilty feeling. And I'm already vegan! How is that possible?
There are definitely better books out there. If you are a teen, I'd suggest just reading other vegan books and maybe just skimming this one.
The book is very insightful and is full of practical advice not only for those who are already vegan, but also for the aspiring vegans out there. I think that this book would also be great for parents to read in order to gain more of an understanding of their teens' viewpoint and some of the social stigmas that can be associated with a vegan lifestyle.
I found Generation V surprisingly funny at times, and the author's personality shines through the pages. The book is extremely well written, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs advice on the topic. Even if you are already a dedicated vegan and don't feel the need for any advice, I still suggest it. I think this book can teach something to just about everyone.
In addition, the book inludes a lot of useful information and resources related to such issues as animal treatment and health. She also discusses additional books and websites that people might want to read to get more information about particular aspects of veganism. Lastly, towards the end of the book, there is a separate chapter with insightful quotes that give a feel of what many prominent people in history have to say about this movement.
