Teaser Tuesdays: EATING ANIMALS by Jonathan Safran Foer


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by
Miz B. of  Should Be Reading.





Want to play along? Here's what to do:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

". . . those who 'believe in meat' and want meat eating to continue without factory farming think vegetarian advocates are the unrealistic ones. Sure, a small (or even large) group may want to go veg, but people in general want meat, always have, always will, and that's that. Vegetarians are at best kindly but unrealistic. At worst they are delusional sentimentalists."

Here is my teaser from Expiation by Greg Messel (page 1):

My sudden and unexpected return to Seattle was about to trigger a chain of events which completely change my life. Three months from this date my career, my life in San Francisco with my daughter and everything I had known before would be radically altered.

Interesting, I have thought about being a Vegetarian. It's only a thought. I love meatloaf too much.

I'm not familiar with this Foer book but your teaser definitely piques my interest! Food for thought (oy! That's awful, sorry!)

Thank you!
