Should be compulsory reading for meat-eaters!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pig Who Sang To The Moon (Paperback)
I read this in 2007 and it truly changed my life. I became a vegetarian overnight and a passionate animal rights advocate.
I should add that I had no intention of becoming a vegetarian when I bought this book. I'd read a number of books about animal emotions and thought this would be another interesting addition to my collection but the information here was, for me, earth-shattering and truly heart-breaking.
It's well written and superbly researched, containing specific chapters about pigs, chickens, sheep, cows and ducks.
The author's views are uncompromising but should we deny the truths presented in this book that farmed animals, despite not one
second of a natural existence throughout their short unbearable lives, are still emotional, thinking, loving creatures that don't deserve the indignities, the torture, the abominable slaughter heaped upon them for the sake of man's greed?
