4.5
This book evoked such outrage on my part as far as how humans treat animals, mammoth meat consumption, that the more I read the angrier I became. So I need to take a step back and decompress before writing down my thoughts on this novel. And really, actually, the more I think about it, the fact that scurvy was prevalent, animals slaughtered left and right and when they're not being treated as soulless creatures, they're dying from lung failure, so they are practically extinct, and the only thing left will mostly likely be kale and GMO corn. Kale rocks. So maybe that's what the author was trying to get across. Who knows. Okay, my thoughts coming on this soon. All in all, I devoured this book. It was mostly awesome. I loved just about every second of it. Emphasis on just.

"So, if you're going to get carried up to heaven, can i have your stuff?" Spork said. He reached for Mrs. Johnston's purse and flipped up the flap. "Got Anything good?""

72.0% "The animal slaughterings and them being written/referred to as basically soulless creatures who are merely food is beginning to grow tiresome. It went from me overlooking those overly detailed sections to getting downright annoyed and angered. Enough already. And the camp? Really? A tad far fetched perhaps?" 2 comments
