Up close and personal account of Foer's journey from omnivore to committed vegetarian. This book reads more like a narrative; owing to its literary-sweetheart author (Everything is Illuminated). The 'characters' including a vegetarian rancher, an animal activist, a dog called George and even Foer's Jewish grandmother, all raise important ethical issues surrounding modern-day meat production and serve to feed Foer's intellectual and sometimes humorous pursuit to understand the ramifications of a meat-eating lifestyle.
