really liked it
bookshelves: 2010
Read from May 26 to June 11, 2010

while it definitely suffers from being twee and pretentious [i started forming a concept of hell in my mind that revolves around jonathan safran foer and nicole krauss sitting in their breakfast nook, discussing their child's afterschool activities and i swear to you it immediately made me want to be a better person out of deep fear i might be correct:] it is also very thought provoking beyond the usual "factory farm = bad" that anyone motivated to read this already knows. which is kind of the problem in that it's going to be preaching to the converted or the want to be converted. i can't see it being given to a "person who thinks vegetarians are crazy" and it actually making an impact because that person would probably not make it through.
