    DO NOT BUY unless "unabridged" doesn't mean anything to you. Sinclair's original text had 36 chapters, this book has the more commonly released 31 chapters. Shame on B&N!

    I love this book, but this version starts in the middle of chapter 9. Very unhappy!

    Terrible! Do not waste your money.

    The print was entirely too small. I purchased it, but was unable to read it.
    I tried changing the letter size (Aa), pinch and zoom nothing worked.

    A must read for those interested in food safety

    My profession is in the field of food safety. I have been both and government inspector and now work in industry training people who handle our food every day. It is my professional interest which originally drove me to read this book years ago. I recommend this book to students in my advanced food safety certification classes.

    The public outcry from the publication of this book actually caused the federal government to do something about the safety of the food supply, and the results of which have led to our current system of food safety regulations and inspections.

    Food safety is not the only relevant topic from this book. Although considered muckracking journalism, it is also one of the original examples of investigative journalism. The author originally intended this book to promote socialism, but instead it led to reform of our food regulatory system.

    The narrative story of the book may not be a gripping tale, but it is used well as a device to help the reader understand what was happening in the food packing industry at the time, as well as the politics and economic realities of the times.

    I would recommend this book...

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in history, social living, or ethics. Great book, fairly easy to read save for a few words that I needed to look up. It went fast and it really pulls you into the lives of the people.

    Warrior Brute Dragon

    I am Dragon. I am a large brute of pure black coat. I have no scars on the outside but am scarred on the inside. I have killed many innocent wolves because my once alpha told me to. I was used. I now am weighted down by grief and disgust at myself. I will protect this pack. But I can not be loved. I am a monster. My eyes are even red from a defect. I am too strong ad ugly in my heart.

    Muckrakers

    Such a muckraker. He should just mind his buisness and let companies do their job

    Loved it until....

    Loved the book until the end. Loved the meat-packing industry outings and characters. Truely disliked the end. Polical ending was out of place and unnecessary and killed the book for me.

    always wanted to read this book

    I remember learning about this book in middle school. and I finally got to read it. This book became infamous because of its muck raking having to do with treatment of animals and workers in the meat industry, but it's funny this book really is not about the slaughterhouses. great story, a classic that everyone should read at least once
