This was a hard book to get through. It was a topic that made you think and in the end I wasn’t a fan of any of the characters, but I think that was the point.

This was the strangest, most unusual, kind of sensual (?) existential crisis inducing book I’ve ever read. Like many others, I don’t think the rating system could truly ever capture the essence of this book.

Oh my..what did I read!? This book was such a puzzle for me. I felt physically sick while reading..I’m sure people in Starbucks could see my look of disgust all over my face…yet I couldn’t put it down.
I love dystopian fiction but ooh this one was hard to stomach (pun intended). People as food, legalized cannibalism because the world’s meat supply is gone due to a virus that’s infected animals and kills humans when consume animal flesh…
I found the concept fascinating; it’s hard to believe the world would give in to the propaganda of “special meat”…but then I think about the world we are in now and how many sheeple exist today following current media propaganda and think eek maybe this could happen
