  • The Way We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter

    Eating is about more than satisfying our hunger. It's also about the environment, social justice, personal development, and sustainable living. Many Americans already know this. We're eating less red meat and more organically produced foods, and most restaurants offer vegetarian options. But do we really know the truth about mechanized animal farming and slaughterhouses, herbicide and pesticide use, and labels that promise "Certified Humane"?

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is for those who really WANT to know the behind-the-scenes graphic details of what happens to their food (especially meat -- how it's killed, etc) before it gets to you. I was wanting more useful information -- the ABC's of vegetarianism, not the "why's" of veganism. Very disappointed.

    Where does Primal Law rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank this in the top 5, and I'm a heavy (constant) reader.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Kirsten is probably the BEST performer I've heard, to date... her inflection, pronunciation, and pace are just immaculate. I would be happy if she could go back and re-read everything I've read, and **I would re-purchase them**... I have read many books that **could** have been really wonderful.... but for the narrator. Yes, I would pay again, just to get rid of the annoyance of having someone mispronounce words, or having to stop and replay something in my head to figure out the meaning of the sentence because there's no inflection. I'm looking for more books read by Kirsten! Yay, Kirsten! lol


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Very well-written, I enjoyed it very much!!

    Turned into a vampire against her will, 28-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago's vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye - and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined. And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing - among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I've enjoyed all of the Chicagoland vampire series, but this is by far the best -- the new narrator doesn't "trip me up" with mis-pronunciations!! There were many, many times over the course of the first 5 novels that I was annoyed, confused, perplexed by the narrator's inability to sound out words to the point where I would lose my place, have to start the chapter over so that I could remember where the story left off!! Much, much nicer!! Thank you!!


    Any additional comments?

    My only hope with this narrator is that she continue to improve the role-playing voices. Her diction, pronunciation, and tone are perfect... she just needs practice with her voicing. Great job!

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    Would you listen to Some Girls Bite again? Why?

    but the pronunciation b-l-o-w-s. Seriously. When unsure, look it up, and pay attention to the pronunciation. It counts, and it can make or break the story.

    Bruce Friedrich, director of vegan outreach for PETA, argues that a vegetarian diet is the only diet that takes seriously the health and environmental implications of animal agriculture. He also discusses the impact of factory farming and slaughterhouse consolidation on worker safety, Third World poverty, and animal welfare.
