    This book was engrossing at some parts then at others it completely lost my attention, almost always the parts that included a lot of scientific information. Overall I believe this book to be very informative and I was surprised by all of the facts that were included such as the part where Rogers described how every part of a dead animal before they dispose of it.
    I never thought the disposal of trash left such an impact as Rogers said until I read his book. The way he described 19th century living conditions made me very glad to have no been born during that time period. I was also very thankful for the people who changed it. This book has changed my whole perspective of trash.
    I would have never chosen this book to read for fun but I honestly was entertained by it. It’s a story about trashes journey and your amazed to find that sometime it’s not trash in someone else’s eyes, it’s just stuff.
    I was kind of disgusted to learn how people lived, climbing and going through streets filled with trash to get to their destination. I would have never lived like that. The smell must have been horrible. I was surprised it stayed like that for as long as it did, I would’ve thought that someone would’ve done something to try and clean it sooner.
    In conclusion I gave this book 3 starts not for the overall book but because it gave the right amount of data to interesting facts and that clues me in that anyone could read this book and be entertained.
