Publisher's Summary

The moral imperative behind vegetarianism is precisely this: to imagine the pain of an animal and then to ask yourself one straightforward question: Do I need to kill it in order to live? And, if you do not need to eat animals to live a good life, then ask yourself the following, and perhaps more pertinent, questions: Is slaughtering a cow, beheading a chicken, or hooking a fish necessary? Is my palate the driving force behind my ethical values?

    "Eye-Opening and a new perspective on the subject"
    What made the experience of listening to Why I Don't Eat Faces the most enjoyable?

    The way everyone can be blind to the suffering of animals, a quality which is adapted and tethered in people's minds, has resulted in a new way of looking at it through this book. I felt connected to the author's thoughts and remained sympathetic to the pain/suffering of animals.


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

    Yes, I wish it was longer! I finished it fast.

    "Good Intentions Went Preachy"

    I have been on a plant-based diet for quite some time so I do not need to be sold on the lifestyle. I was, however, interested to learn if David Christopher Lane has to say. I was sure he would not present anything new but at the end of the book, he gave this analogy (I am both paraphrasing and adlibbing): “No one would French kiss a cow but few people have qualms about sucking on cooked animal juices and or foods fried in animal rendering.” I must admit he got me with that one—and yes, for me, his logic here makes sense.

    I could never do Lane’s voice regarding the subject of veganism any justice. He speaks about his experiences and perspective with fiery point-counterpoint passion that I try to avoid both as speaker and listener (honestly, I hope I am not guilty of this). Also the book is short, making it is super easy for a reviewer to spill too many beans at the expense of potential book sales for the author. For these reasons I will only say that I found some bits of the book to be interesting, and others a big turn off because he fell into "preach" mode. Still, 30 minutes (less if you increase the speed like I did) might not be too long to listen to someone else’s opinion especially if you are curious about or remotely interested in veganism.

    Paul Stefano did a great job reading and holding up the author's perspective in a way that was both articulate and believable.

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you Audiobook Boom.

    "I was hoping for knowledge on the subject..."

    I a not sure how to review this..
    I have reading up on vegetarianism and vegan living and the benefits the last few weeks, I figured this would be an exultant to further my research.
    This book isn't about why we shouldn't " eat faces" or why the author does eat faces. its more of a term paper or thesis. it really didn't go into to much detail on anything. So i didn't learn much. I was kind of disappointed.
    I will added that the narrator dig a great job though.

    I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..
