What could have been a gross, sad mess of a book, was in fact wonderful. Dark, but so human. Scary, funny at time, and such a page turner I hated putting it down. The only thing I did not love about this book is that it had to end. Great read, can't wait to read more of his books.

I feel really stupid for not figuring out what the Chosen were when I first read about what happened to the calves. It sank in and I just couldn't believe it.  Great book, very believable. I don't like to know where my food comes from, and I'm sure a lot of people don't.

Very disturbing, but written vague and implying, not harshly. So it is insidlious when you are finally disgusted. Good book! Skip his other book Garbage Man, hard to follow and juvenile.
