After reading this book I feel that I am more aware of what I eat and how that choice affects my environment. I have lost about 12 pounds in just over a month and I plan on continuing this lifestyle. In addition to the weight loss and new-found awareness I also feel much more energetic.
Thank you Lara!
The numerous, OUTSTANDING quotes utilized throughout range from those recognizable, famous figures past and present to another end of the spectrum of some not-so-famous folks as well. But in all fairness, in certain circles let's just say their name(s) may not be as recognizable; what matters most is that the weight and wisdom of these relevant sentiments do NOT at all diminish or separate their insight from those more notable figures.
The comic strips throughout align perfectly to whichever particular sensitive / cruel / moral dilemma / ethical / health-centric subject is focused on at the given moment. But they are laid out and presented in such a manner, exuding such subtleness and quite frankly adorable artwork that it's near impossible not to smile : )
But it's truly a non-issue as to what's said in what particular context here and there; in and of itself, these thought-provoking, intelligent, well-informed or top-of mind, nonsensical bits of commentary enforce, support, instill and genuinely assert upon the reader the possibility that new ways of thinking, new approaches - or conversely, NOT absorbed one bit by said reader - nonetheless really lend a 100% open minded and angle-free lean towards one end of the spectrum or the other.
It's eventually, and inevitably, the readers personal take-away and interpretation after finishing up this entertaining, witty, and knowledgeable read vs. the author content drilling into the readers mind that "meat bad - greens good.Read more ›
There are numerous quotes from several different view points that give the reader something to think about. I am truly happy to finally have my copy of Lola Lollipop and I can hardly wait to share it with friends and family.
Yeah, I was wrong. (Probably not much of a shock to anybody who knows me in real life but this is the interweb!I get to pretend I'm omnipotent! Wow, big word...)
I flipped the book open so I could get a few choice quotes to be able to trick my friend into thinking I had read it at least. I read the first few pages....then flipped some more....then flipped some more.....and then next thing I knew I'd read half the book. Far from the preaching I expected I found....oh, I don't know -- I guess just a little thing called perspective!
The book is filled with quotes and thoughts and cartoons designed not to make you change your life (though I'm sure the author wouldn't mind if you did) but just to make you think a little bit about things. And thinking's good, right? There's no preaching, no judging, just some thought provoking ideas. I still eat meat, don't really plan on stopping but I definitely think about things a little more when I do. And thinking's still good, let's never forget that one.
