This book sparked my interest because I have begun a journey to embrace a more cruelty-free, natural, and minimalistic lifestyle.
The title, Living Cruelty Free, is appropriate because the book exposes the truth about cruel experiments on animals, factory farming, forced labour, and the cruelty that goes into meat production and cheap clothing.
This theme is carried out throughout the book as evident by her ability to teach us how become more aware of the impact we each have on the environment, and the book adequately pinpoints the message of the book by providing facts, resources, and tips on how to be an ethical consumer and live a more compassionate lifestyle.
Having first read the title of the book, I expected the book to be a finger-pointing shame-on-them commentary about how meat eating is cruel.
The author of the book is Jennifer Thomson, a freelance writer, who has been a vegetarian for 29 years and has always tried to live a cruelty free life.
The main purpose of the book is to teach consumers how to avoid buying cosmetics, foods, and other products that have been tested on animals.
I particularly liked the fact that the book provides a plethora of information without ever sounding preachy, even though she is obviously writing about a cause that is very close to her heart. The author doesn’t push the reader into changing their lifestyle or beliefs or quit eating meat tomorrow.
The book was really interesting to read and easy to understand.
I would highly recommend this book mainly to readers who are interested in beginning to live a cruelty-free lifestyle..
After researching, and becoming more than a little bit frustrated, online switching to a cruelty-free lifestyle online, it was so nice to finally find a resource that lays everything out in a very organized manner that gives the reader the information they need
