Product description

"Eating Animals" is Jonathan Safran Foer's eye-opening account of where meat comes from 'I simply wanted to know - for myself and my family - what meat is. Where does it come from? How is it produced? What are the economic, social and environmental effects? Are there animals that it is straightforwardly right to eat? Are there situations in which not eating animals is wrong? If this began as a personal quest, it didn't stay that way for long..." (Jonathan). Safran Foer's "Eating Animals" is the most original book on the subject of food written this century. It will change the way you think, and change the way you eat. For good. "Moving, disturbing, should be compulsory reading. A genuine masterwork. Read this book. It will change you". ("Time Out"). "Shocking, incandescent, brilliant". ("The Times"). "Everyone who eats flesh should read this book". (Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall). "Gripping, horrible, wonderful, breathtaking, original. A brilliant synthesis of argument, science and storytelling. One of the finest books ever written on the subject of eating animals". ("The Times Literary Supplement"). "Horrifying, eloquent, timely". ("Spectator"). "If you eat meat and fish, you should read this book. Even if you don't, you should. It might bring the beginning of a change of heart about all living things". (Joanna Lumley Jonathan). Safran Foer was born in 1977. He is the author of "Everything is Illuminated", which won the National Jewish Book Award and the Guardian First Book award; "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close", which is now a major film starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock; and "Eating Animals". He is also the editor of "A Convergence of Birds" and of a new edition of the "Haggadah".

Customer reviews

By mark kirwan 27 Oct 2012 5

This book will change your life and your attitude towards eating meat forever. Factory and industrial farming is the way the world is going. Count me out! I've worked in a pig "farm" before sadly and the abuse is horrendous. This book reminded me of how bad it was.
