Parts of this book shine, and Adams really hits the nail on the head when she explains why veg*ns can get so offended by omnivores who call themselves vegetarians. However, I think the title is misleading. Adams starts out with much promise, showing the links between advertising meat and women for consumption, but quickly falls into literary critiques and leaves a lot of the politics and sociology behind.
This book is much better suited to viewing literature, rather than life, from a feminist and vegetarian standpoint. I only wanted more linking and connection not related to literature, because I am certain Adams is onto something here and it doesn't have to do with literature.
