This is a funny fantastic book- great for anyone- farmer or city dweller. It explores the issues of living your partner's dream and getting older. It is a quick fun read.
As a girl who grew up helping out on my Grandparent's farm and I have watched it be passed onto my aunt and uncle, I felt this was disappointing. This book would be better for people who have no idea what farming is. If you know anything about farming, you will be bored out of your mind. I also did not like hearing about the author's farm over and over again. I felt she repeated herself over and over again. I also was surprised that the lesbian author compared statistics of lesbian and gay couples to the amount of animals slated for slaughter every year. I felt that was uncalled for. I would not read this again nor would I recommend anyone else to read it. I will agree that it was comprehensive, but it was really boring.
If you must eat meat, then you must read this higly compassionate work by author who brought you 'Hit by a Farm'. Even though my Wife and I are Veggies,I support people like Catherine Friend who in a world of meat eaters tries to make it a little bit more respectful. Thank you Catherine.
