Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between carnivore and vegetarian. As he became a husband and a father, he kept returning to two questions: Why do we eat animals? And would we eat them if we knew how they got on our dinner plates?
Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, and his own undercover detective work, 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 justify a brutal ignorance. 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, huge bestsellers, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we've told - and the stories we now need to tell.
This is a non-fiction book of a father researching into the meat industry to decide whether he should commit his new son as a vegetarian. My Mom is a vegetarian by faith, but I'm not religious so I'm pretty interested in seeing if this will convince me to give up meat (though I'll probably still be very very clingy when it comes to seafood). I've flipped through it a bit and there looks to be rather engaging textual graphics =D

In my first IMM post I blogged about the third book in the series that I bought, Eight Skilled Gentlemen, and I've been trying to get my hands on the full "trilogy" - it was dropped by the publisher past book 3 I think, and book two seems extremely elusive/can't be found =(
Always loved reading fairy tale retellings, and Chinese myths, so combine the two, and this series shall be my one true love 8D
