Nez and 3 other people liked Cait's review of So Much for That:
So Much for That by Lionel Shriver
"I don't think Shriver meant to describe her own book with the following passage, but she did:

"Remember how sometimes, in the middle, a movie seems to drag? I get restless, and take a leak, or go for popcorn. But sometimes, the last part, it heats..." Read more of this review »
Nez and 24 other people liked Joy's review of So Much for That:
So Much for That by Lionel Shriver
"There are parts of this book that I would actually rate no more than 2 stars. Sometimes the writing gets overwrought, awkward, and has the characters thinking or talking about the healthcare system or other issues in a preachy, pedantic way. But,..." Read more of this review »

On Privilege by Julian Burnside
"My disappointment in this essay, and the discussion at the book launch, stems more from my expectations than any fault in Burnside's opinions. His thoughts are more scattered than engaging, dabbling between his birth into wealth, human rights in G..." Read more of this review »

Beryl Markham
“To see ten thousand animals untamed and not branded with the symbols of human commerce is like scaling an unconquered mountain for the first time, or like finding a forest without roads or footpaths, or the blemish of an axe. You know then what you had always been told -- that the world once lived and grew without adding machines and newsprint and brick-walled streets and the tyranny of clocks.”
Beryl Markham, West with the Night

“Isn`t man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes, and dingoes - by the millions in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billions and eats them. This in turn kills man by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out a card praying for 'Peace on Earth.”
C. David Coats

Matthew Scully
“The only thing worse than cruelty is delegated cruelty.”
Matthew Scully, Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy

Gary L. Francione
“We do not need to eat animals, wear animals, or use animals for entertainment purposes, and our only defense of these uses is our pleasure, amusement, and convenience.”
Gary L. Francione

George Orwell
“Can you not understand that liberty is worth more than just ribbons?”
George Orwell, Animal Farm
