I’ve recently just finished reading Hal Herzog’s “Some We love, Some we Hate, Some We Eat”, and I just couldn’t wait to share it with you all. As you may have guessed from the title, this book is all about the way we see different animals, and the relationships we have with them. It’s a wonderful, thought-provoking read that touches on many subjects, such as the human-meat relationship, animals as fashion statements and companions, and the use of animals in science or cruel “sports” like cockfighting.The book ends addressing the question – how can we say we love some animals, even share our homes with them, but at the same time contribute to industries that enslave, torture and kill so many others? Those of us who have really stopped to think about this moral inconsistency chose to act, to change something…going vegan or vegetarian, not wearing leather or using cosmetics that have been tested on animals, some even open sanctuaries and dedicate their lives to helping animals in need. And if you haven’t thought about it yet, be prepared, because this book will definitely give you some food for thought!
“Some We love, Some we Hate, Some We Eat” is incredibly fascinating, scientifically sound, and surprisingly unbiased. Wheather you are vegan or not, I really do recommend you pick up a copy, because no matter how you feel about eating meat, and well, animals in general, this book will most definitely have an impact on the way you think, and maybe even on the way you act towards other earthlings.
If you want to pick up a copy, the book is available on Amazon:
