Have you read We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves? I don't want to ruin the book for anyone because it has a major plot twist about 1/3 way through -- spoiler alert in our interview: http://aldf.org/blog/interview-with-k...

But I love this book! I highly recommend it. It is so well written. And it really poses the question: Is experimenting on primates, who are so close to us, humane? Is it humane for any animal?

Robin Lamont | 7 comments I also loved the book. It's hard to believe that testing on any animal that cannot give their consent is humane.

Oh, I loved this book too! It was so powerful, so moving. I thought about this story for weeks after finishing this book. No, absolutely not humane, for any animal.
