i want to hear your review -- as someone who straight up made the stenciled shirts for the choir.

i just finished this book while i was in charlottesville,
it took me a while because reading all that stuff was making me very anxious and panicky about the state of the world of food
and since i still eat many animal products (eggs, cheese, dairy and before this book, fish)
i didnt want the harsh reality of factory farms to be even more magnified than the information i already know
the information about fish farming has definitely put me off fish.
over all the book was amazing. i'm lending it to a girl down in charlottesville so she can spread its knowledge
i think everyone that eats meat should read this
it just isnt fair that people can eat as much meat (especially chicken) and not be faced with how their meat is made. not raised. made.
meat eaters should read this and then make whatever decision they choose. but you at least have to read it.
feathers- it's probably full of all sorts of information you already know, but it's still worth reading, merely because mr. foer is a great writer, whichever topic
though i don't think i'm against eating meat (i could catch a fish and eat it and not feel too bad) but making them live lives of suffering before eating them just seems overkill.
