as a service, all fine and dandy; the book itself is essentially an aggressive presentation of the idea that meat eaters are basically rapists because we do things to animals bodies without their permission. I found the introduction interesting but stopped reading the book halfway through as each rape/oppression/meat eaters are just generally disgusting people because X metaphor was making me do strange faces and snorts of disbelief on the bus and i was being stared at.Perhaps a useful text if you are studying this sort of thing but i got no intellectual nourishment from it whatsoever. but this is just my opinion

I enjoyed reading this book and it had lots of interesting ideas... however, I felt that it did not flow very well. It seemed like a string of interesting facts put together and often repeated in no particular order and with no obvious coherence.

A vegetarian literature classic worth reading but be prepared to force yourself through some of the chapters (unless you are quite artsy and enjoy a bit of chaos in literature)...

Also immortalised in a song of the same title by Consolidated. This book was standard reading (but not actually on the reading list) on my sociology course. Well worth a read as part of gaining some perspective on the range of feminist thought.

On the one hand, having only recently got around to reading the book, it still is relevant, still is interesting and still says things that need to be said. On the other hand, I felt that it could have gone further into some critical analysis of less 'obvious' texts - but this remains a minor criticism. Altogether I would highly recommend this book.

This book should be given to every child at school. Every single one of them, and then the teachers and the parents of the children. I have 2 copies, and tomorrow I will be handing a third copy over to a younger friend of mine for her 24th birthday. I hope the knowledge she discovers will support her throughout her life choices. A fantastic book.
At a more academic level, I think Carol Adams's decision to write what she did when she did and then publish it when she was ready, along side the information she provides, supported by men and women from all era's, book references, quotes, images; the whole kit and kaboodle of a thoroughly researched, and personal story of observation, empathy and emotion. I love Absent Referent, I use it all the time, and now I know it has a 'term', thank you, thank you so much.
