I recently undertook a "vegan challenge" at my place of employment. This was in complete contrast with my typical diet. A co-worker, who also took the challenge, recommended this book to me. The most amazing insight it offered me (beyond the obvious personal health, humane, ecological and world hunger aspects that make veganism so compelling) was the fact that so many brilliant people quoted in the book are vegan or vegetarian. Many of them were people that I would never have imagined as such.

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!

An outstanding, accessible, "relevant-at-any-page-one-flips-to" type of coffee-table book which will illicit some solid, serious, and at the same time humorous discussions amongst friends and family, vegetarian and carnivore alike.

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.

Speaking as an almost exclusive carnivore, this was a great read. A very clever approach to a topic that typically makes my eyes glass over. The tone was just right on - non preachy or militant. Its a great relaxed way to learn more about the perils of our animal diet without the sad Sarah McLachlan music playing in the background or having to take a shower to try to wash the shame off of yourself. Should be mandatory reading before your next cheeseburger. To top it off, the comics are pretty damn funny.

I came across Lola Lollipop and few weeks ago. I was online searching for vegan or health conscious comics to share on my blog. Lola definitely caught my attention right away. The books is the perfect balance of consciousness and confusion. Anyone who is sort of in-between the light and dark of living a healthy lifestyle should read these fun and thought provoking strips.

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.

Being a one time meat-a-tarian and now conscious omnivore, this book cleverly and humorously reminds us all what we've already known; the world's desire for flesh is hurting us and the planet. Not preachy, always informative and often tongue in cheek, this book is a great gift idea, or a happy reminder to do what I can to ween myself off an animal based diet.

The quote from my subject is just one of hundreds that Lara Matthews shares with us in this great little book. I'm not a vegetarian and I have no intention of becoming one. I LOVE eating meat and have my whole life and basically only bought this book because a nagging vegetarian friend of mine basically insisted. I expected to only pretend to read it, quickly to be turned off by the condescending preaching I just knew was going to be inside. She may have gotten me to buy it but I'd be damned if she got me to like it!

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.
