Eating Animals is a brilliant, in depth look at the state of the modern food industry from the farm to your plate. This book is the conclusion of years of research put together by Foer who delves into several different perspectives of the treatment of our food to deliver and unbiased view of how food is produced. Not only does he ask tough questions to those he interviews in the book, but he also asks thought provoking questions to the reader, allowing for moments of introspection to search the consciousness for answers to why we make the choices we do when preparing or sitting down for a meal. He offers a chance for everyone to understand exactly what they are buying from fast food chains grocery stores or farmer’s markets. He puts faces to the farmers that raise, feed and tend to the animals that we mindlessly consume and fosters awareness to those that go about it respectfully and those that do not. This work is an intriguing and important read for anyone that has ever stopped to think about what was on their plate or wondered where it came from and how it actually ended up there.
