Fast Food Nation was an interestingly revealing read. Instead of focusing solely on the food, Schlosser wrote a lot about the fast food industry itself and how people are being consummately sucked into buying their food. Some of the parts pertaining to the business aspects of fast food lost my attention - however, the tidbits on the working conditions and the ingredients of the unhealthy indulgences made me want to read more. I usually do not visit fast food restaurants, so this book has not drastically changed my eating habits. Despite this, I felt like I learned a lot about how the corporations and businesses work.

Amy Haha not really...I don't remember much of it b/c it was mandatory for AP Human Geo and I sort of skimmed the thing for my tests tehe. Some of the facts were interesting but for the most part it's a lot of analysis. I think. (x

Thomas Aw... well, that's okay. For some reason I find it enjoyable to read books about the food industry, even though I don't eat much myself. I probably wouldn't be wanting to read it if it were assigned for school either loll.
