From the Publisher: Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood-facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf-his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong. Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting. Marked by Foer's profound moral ferocity and unvarying generosity, as well as the vibrant style and creativity that made his previous books, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, widely loved, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we've told-and the stories we now need to tell.… (mais)

A good way to become vegetarian - the problem with the book is Foer does not work out the global market mechanics that connect to esting meat.

I wish he had dedicated even half the book to show the way ahead and take into account global forces. ( )

Mr Foer makes a pretty good case for not eating animals. And he does it without being preachy. Instead he uses his own investigative journey through factory farming, first person narratives and interviews, and facts. Lots of numbers. Which is convincing for readers like me to come to our own conclusions and what we should do next. ( )

»Ich liebe Würste auch, aber ich esse sie nicht.« Jonathan Safran Foer in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung

»Tiere essen« ist ein leidenschaftliches Buch über die Frage, was wir essen und warum. Der hoch gelobte amerikanische Romancier und Bestsellerautor Jonathan Safran Foer hat ein aufrüttelndes Buch über Fleischkonsum und dessen Folgen geschrieben, das weltweit Furore macht und bei uns mit Spannung erwartet wird.

Wie viele junge Menschen schwankte Jonathan Safran Foer lange zwischen Fleischgenuss und Vegetarismus hin und her. Als er Vater wurde und er und seine Frau überlegten, wie sie ihr Kind ernähren würden, bekamen seine Fragen eine neue Dringlichkeit: Warum essen wir Tiere? Würden wir sie auch essen, wenn wir wüssten, wo sie herkommen?

Foer stürzt sich mit Leib und Seele in sein Thema. Er recherchiert auf eigene Faust, bricht nachts in Tierfarmen ein, konsultiert einschlägige Studien und spricht mit zahlreichen Akteuren und Experten. Vor allem aber geht er der Frage auf den Grund, was Essen für den Menschen bedeutet. Auch Foer kennt die trostspendende Kraft einer fleischhaltigen Lieblingsmahlzeit, die seit Generationen in einer Familie gekocht wird.

In einer brillanten Synthese aus Philosophie, Literatur, Wissenschaft und eigenen Undercover-Reportagen bricht Foer in »Tiere essen« eine Lanze für eine bewusste Wahl. Er hinterfragt die Geschichten, die wir uns selbst erzählen, um unser Essverhalten zu rechtfertigen, und die dazu beitragen, dass wir der Wirklichkeit der Massentierhaltung und deren Konsequenzen nicht ins Auge sehen.

»Tiere essen« besticht durch eine elegante Sprache, überraschende Denkfiguren und viel Humor. Foer zeigt ein großes Herz für menschliche Schwächen, lässt sich aber in seinem leidenschaftlichen Plädoyer für die Möglichkeiten ethischen Handelns nicht bremsen. Eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für jeden Menschen, der über sich und die Welt – und seinen Platz in ihr – nachdenkt.

Mit einem eigens für die deutsche Ausgabe geschriebenen Vorwort von Jonathan Safran Foer.

»Diese Geschichte begann nicht als ein Buch. Ich wollte nur wissen – für mich und für meine Familie – was Fleisch eigentlich ist. Wo kommt es her? Wie wird es produziert? Welche Folgen hat unser Fleischkonsum für die Wirtschaft, die Gesellschaft und unsere Umwelt? Gibt es Tiere, die man bedenkenlos essen kann? Gibt es Situationen, in denen der Verzicht auf Fleisch falsch ist? Warum essen wir kein Hundefleisch? Was als persönliche Untersuchung begann, wurde rasch sehr viel mehr als das …« Jonathan Safran Foer

Two years ago, Eating Animals made me vegan. For a while. Foer's unaggressive narrative captured my attention at first, when the book opened questioning the necessity meat-related taboos. Foer seemed to leave me with a freedom to make my own choices, once I was provided the information in his book. As I got through the pages of this book, I became increasingly grossed out with animals products, however. This, surely, resulted from his descriptions of animal suffering, but augmented with the philosophical and economic context of it.

Foer's personal research (I think he traveled to industrial production facilities to check out food production in person) was particularly vivid. One phrase I still remember, two years after reading it: "Although one can realistically expect that at least some percentage of cows and pigs are slaughtered with speed and care, no fish gets a good death. Not a single one. You never have to wonder if the fish on your plate had to suffer. It did."

Now, two years removed from reading this life-changing book, my perception of eating animal products is still morphing. Suffering isn't the biggest question I struggle with these days, but, rather, whether or not I can reduce my contribution to the economy's demand for industrial animal production.

This book won't scream at you in an effort to "convert" you to the vegan church. I encourage any thinking individual to pick this up for a quick dip into reality. ( )

A truly disturbing read. I've gone through some vegetarian stages throughout my life and after reading this book I'd feel wrong if I didn't make another attempt to embrace a vegetarian diet. A book that should be read by everyone. ( )

Animal rights advocates occasionally pick fights with sustainable meat producers (such as Joel Salatin), as Jonathan Safran Foer does in his recent vegetarian polemic, Eating Animals.
 
"A straightforward case for vegetarianism is worth writing," writes Foer, "but it's not what I've written here." Yet he has, though the implications of what eating animals really entails will be hard for most readers to swallow.

An earnest if clumsy chronicle of the author’s own evolving thinking about animals and vegetarianism, this uneven volume meanders all over the place, mixing reportage and research with stream-of-consciousness musings and asides.
 
"Eating Animals” is a postmodern version of Peter Singer’s 1975 manifesto “Animal Liberation,” dressed up with narrative bells and whistles befitting the author of “Everything Is Illuminated” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.”
 
What makes Eating Animals so unusual is vegetarian Foer's empathy for human meat eaters, his willingness to let both factory farmers and food reform activists speak for themselves, and his talent for using humor to sweeten a sour argument.
