did not like it
Read in February, 2012

I was incredibly disappointed. The idea behind the essay I thought was quite amusing, until I actually read it. Instead of amusement, I felt sickened. I know that he's being entirely sarcastic, but he described how to cook children and why euthanization is such a great idea- and he did it in such detail, that it made me sick. A fun idea, but perhaps I'm not cultured enough to enjoy it.
