    This isn t as much of a review of Jonathan Safran Foer s latest book as it is a reaction to it a reaction to the reactions of others, even The title of this book garners a reaction from people who haven t read it and who may never read it Just carry Eating Animals around for a few days and you ll understand There s an assumption that a book about eating animals is going to tell you that it is in some way wrong to eat animals whether for the welfare of animals or for your own welfare and most peo [...]

    I am not a vegetarian Honestly, I ve never even tried to be a vegetarian at any point in my life I love steak I love bacon I love sushi I could go on, but you get the idea.With my son not being able to have any sort of gluten or artificial coloring in the food he eats, I ve always thought I was doing good by stopping by the actual farmer s stand to get fresh eggs and some fruit veggies one benefit of living in a small, hick town and then picking up my nicely packaged and already butchered meat f [...]

    I was torn how to rate this book It isn t perfect I noted many flaws in its comprehensiveness but it s amazing enough, so 5 stars it is.I ve read so many books such as this but none for a while, and it s because reading about how humans use animals is so devastating for me It s not just the books contents, it s knowing that, at most, only 1% of Americans feel as I do, that my feelings and beliefs are shared by so few The latest statistics I have are that 3% of Americans are truly vegetarian and [...]

    I don t mean this dismissively, but I feel like I finally get what Charlton Heston meant when he cried out, Soylent Green is people It s peeeeople Just I don t know That movie s pretty silly, but I keep walking around the house feeling like all those years that I ate meat, I was really eating human souls And I even knew almost all of this information before reading the book I know I m being dramatic, as per usual, but there really is something about food that brings out both the best and the wo [...]

    i ve long flirted with vegetarianism for a few months in the early 00s, i even dated her but i d never truly wanted to spend all of my time with her, send her flowers, or introduce her to my parents and everyone i ve ever cared about until i read this booker claims early on that he hasn t set out to write a book about why people should become vegetarians, an argument that holds zero ounces of water once you actually start reading his descriptions of factory farms i found it impossible to learn a [...]

    Well done, Jonathan Safran Foer, well done your book, not steak Look, I love meat I really do I hate myself for that, but I love meat I also deplore seeing living creatures suffer I m the jerk that lets spiders out of the house instead of squishing them I also know that if I had to kill the animal myself, I d be a veggie for sure I m a total sucker for animals, but not enough of a sucker, I guess.In junior high, I became a crazy animal rights environmentalist tree worshiping bunny hugger This re [...]

    I realize I finished this book 10 days ago and have not rated itd I also can t stop thinking about it There s a lot I could say about this book and how much it made me think it s completely riddled with highlighter but honestly, most people I know wouldn t bother picking this up no matter what I say We eat animals because we re too selfish and stubborn to change We eat animals because we re too lazy to make the inconvenient choices We eat animals because we ve been told over and over and over th [...]

    In his book Heat, Bill Buford reflects as he prepares to butcher a pig that he has always respected vegetarians for being among the few who actually think about meat In Eating Animals, JSF doesn t seem to respect much of anybody, other than his grandmother and Kafka For all the promising ethical paths he walks down, from traditional animal husbandry to Bill Niman s sustainable beef to animal rights activism, he s so determined to shit on everyone else s ideas about eating meat that I m not sure [...]

    For us to maintain our way of living, we must tell lies to each other and especially to ourselves The lies are necessary because, without them, many deplorable acts would become impossibilities Derrick JensenPeople cannot talk about their food choices without resorting to a narrative, and I m no different Food is so intensely personal we relate to it on such an elemental level, that it s easy to understand The foods we eat are part of the mythos we use to delineate our identities We eat kosher o [...]

    Hear are my thoughts in order as I was reading this book.1 OMGOMFG 2 Crapw I m a vegatarian 3 I can never have my favorite Mongolian Chicken from Mings again snif.Yes in that order I have not eaten meat since half way through this book Will it stick I hope so.Not only the mind numbing crulety of the factory farms which is plenty , and the enviormental damage they cause, but the shear crap they feed the animals did it for me H1N1.factory farms traced back to a hog farm in one of the Carolinas The [...]

    I ve been a vegetarian for a few years now, and it was a long process that brought me here literally too, I didn t go cold turkey I m sometimes surprised by how little I thought about certain things throughout my life And coming from someone who grew up with a face in a book, and his head in the clouds, I find this interesting I over thought and over analyzed everything or at least everything I thought about I spent my days thinking about fantasy worlds and the future, about girls and relationsh [...]

    NO SPOILERS The title alone may scare off those who d rather not know how their meat got from farm to table, but Eating Animals is one of those books that s too important not to read This is part memoir, part journalistic investigation, but the book is strongest when going inside slaughterhouses and educating, exposing the truth of something heinous beyond imagining When people think of farms, idyllic Charlotte s Web like images might spring to mind, but according to Eating Animals, the farm of [...]

    If Nothing Matters, There s Nothing to Save Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating AnimalsI m going to have to chew on this book for a bit I m not sure a review the day after reading will fully vest what I plan on doing after reading this I might be about ready to go veg, but there is something just annoying enough about JSF that almost wants to keep me eating meat just to piss him off Nah, that really isn t true, but I wish it was The book isn t as well written as I would have liked It gave me what was i [...]

    I am floating this again last time Swear , this time for the Facebook 30 Day Book Challenge Day whatever I am on asks for a book that changed your life I don t know that I have ever read a book that really changed my life But this one comes the closest.That sounds a little dippy, but really For years, I had skittered around the margins of vegetarianism I d forgo meat the majority of the time, perhaps even the vast majority, but I didn t have really concrete reasons as to why Health Environmental [...]

    Eating animals about eating animals.d much much I ve always felt wrong for eating meat yet continued to do so For some reason, I thought it would be so hard to give up Over time my conscience spoke louder than my fears denials and the ball has been rolling ever since I wanted some extra encouragement, so I ordered this book I knew about slaughter houses and what goes on to an extent Little did I know, I really knew nothing I ve ingested this food all my life HOLYYYYYY SHIIIIIIT How can I keep t [...]

    I think that this book has changed my life, albeit in a really f cking inconvenient way I ve read Omnivore s Dilemma and Fast Food Nation and all the types of books that people who are trying to be socially conscious are supposed to read, and I know about the horrors of factory farming and how brutally animals are treated in the course of getting to my plate But somehow it s been easier to live with it and ignore it in the past Pollan even gives you a convenient out at the end of his book, where [...]

    There is no way that any compassionate and responsible person could read this book and not want to begin taking steps to end his or her contributions to factory farming Jonathan Safron Foer is not an animal rights activist and that s not what this book is about At the same time, it is not another Omnivore s Dilemma, either Eating Animals is a much honest analysis of factory farming and it is also far honest about the solutions In fact, it s fair to say that this book makes Pollan look rather r [...]

    I didn t have the highest opinion of this book or its author when I first heard of it But since I ve been heading toward a sort of not very militant veganism lately, I decided to give it a go when I saw a copy online for a penny plus shipping It s a worthwhile read, especially as a moral argument that is, it s commendable as a somewhat formally inventive elaboration of the timeless conflict between wrong and right The author s Judaic heritage helps him out in this sense, plus there s the heft of [...]

    Edit 04 15 13 About thirty years ago the poultry industry convinced the UDSA to reclassify feces so that it could continue to use automatic eviscerators where fecal contamination occurs from high speed machines ripping open the birds intestines, releasing feces into their body cavities Feces are now classified as a cosmetic blemish What does this mean other than the fact that consumers are eating chicken shit Inspectors condemn half the number of birds So, according to journalist Scott Bronstein [...]

    Shocking yet incredibly informative I was deeply moved by this book and I have since bought it for a number of friends and relatives to read In this brilliant work of non fiction Jonathan Safran Foer shares his journey to becoming a vegetarian Foer gives a very rounded look at why someone would want to be a vegetarian, he tackles a broad range of topics and presents them in a very digestible way I didn t feel like this book was at all preachy and loved that fact that Foer went and interviewed so [...]

    This was a difficult but amazing read and in my opinion one of the most powerful books on this topic I encourage and challenge you all to read it Seriously if I could give everyone I know a copy of this book, I would 3Jonathan Safran Foer, who is probably most known for his book Everything Is Illuminated, has returned with his first non fiction book The topic Foer s off and on struggle with vegetarianism and what prompted him to make the switch for good the birth of his son Throughout the book w [...]

    I typically rate books and do not write reviews Why should I throw my two cents in about a topic when everyone else has probably said the same thing and eloquently Do I need to repeat what has already been written just so I can see my name somewhere It feels narcissistic Or perhaps that is just a good excuse for not being able to add anything new This one is hard to leave without a review or reflection though I am not even sure what a rating matters in this instance I could give it a 3 or a 4 b [...]


    Anna

    Oh, Jonathan Safran Foer What I d love to know is whether you became a self important, self indulgent, and self righteous jackass BEFORE or AFTER you became an international writing sensation My guess is, after, when you d already retreated into the overpriced clucky dreamworld of Park Slope Because I can t see the voice behind the poignant, beautiful passages of Everything Is Illuminated penning the divorced from the world fawning drivel of Eating Animals.I wish I had never picked up this book, [...]


    Max

    I m not sure I can say this book was amazing This is a different kind of five star rating But it is probably one of the most important Foer is the first author to successfully and or popularly consider the human impetus for storytelling and forgetting alongside the alarming facts of animal industry I wish I had written this book a little differently perhaps, but I still wish I had But then it wouldn t have the impact that only a bestselling author can have Condemning, creative, direct, disarming [...]

    I can t possibly finish this book It makes me cry, feel disgusted and literally nauseated I can only try to always be aware, a good vegetarian and support animal rights as much as I can.


    Lee

    I m sitting here after finishing this book asking myself how is it possible that only one short month ago I was an omnivore, regularly and obliviously munching away on fish and meat without the least idea of what goes into their production and delivery to my table The way this author approached the topic of eating animals really resonated with me It was personal, it was engaging, he conveyed the information and expressed his preferences without making me feel I had to follow suit I love how he b [...]
