    Just saw JSF speak about this book, and while I was genuinely worried that my beloved favorite writer had become an environmentalist overnight and given up his genius literary ways, that is not the case. The book actually takes a very interesting perspective- it's a conversation, rather than an argument, using brilliant, heart-wrenching anecdotes from JSF's grandmother's life that many are familiar with from his most famous book Everything Is Illuminated...and I have to say, well done. JSF definitely did his research.

    Read the book that turned Natalie Portman from a vegetarian into a vegan teen activist.

    A good read for omnivores curious about the origins of food,..(with humor.) A good gift for someone that is not already vegan. "Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting. Marked by Foer's profound moral ferocity and unvarying generosity, as well as the vibrant style and creativity that made his previous books, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, widely loved, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we've told-and the stories we now need to tell. "
