I can't count the post-its I put in this book. And the quotes I underlined. And the !! I put everywhere. This book depicts the reality of factory farms and the meat we find in our supermarkets (at least in the USA, I know that it is not the same in Europe because industries are a bit smaller, but st...

Most of you probably know Jonathan Safran Foer as the author behind Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between carnivore and vegetarian.

I literally had nightmares about chickens in cages for the three days it took me to read this. I was already a vegetarian when I decided to read Eating Animals. I have to say that it reaffirmed my decision and I will NEVER eat meat again. What we humans are willing to allow in order to satisfy our t...
