boring, preachy and not much information
on February 10, 2011
It seems like everyone else who gave this book a one star review didn't approve of the subject matter (which if you think about it is a pretty stupid reason to give a book a bad review). I on the other hand am a happy, guilt free meat eater who has been supporting humane farming for years, but I thought this book was a terrible waste of money. It really has almost no information in it at all. It's a piece of fluff--carelessly written in a big hurry to capitalize on the current interest in humane farming? It sure seems like it. I learned nothing and I found the author's tone preachy. She also spends a LOT of time talking about her sheep and assumes everyone reading the book has never seen a sheep before and wants to hear all about the basics of what sheep are like. She goes on and on about how wonderful their personalities are, which strikes me as odd in a book that is arguing in favor of meat eating. The book has no point to it. It is poorly written and I felt like reading it was a complete waste of my time.
