I have stopped listening to the audio recording of Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosserr I simply could not listen to another CD. Not because it was awful, the truth is, it is an interesting and well researched book/CD. “Part investigative journalism, part social criticism,” it was a New York Times bestseller and has been critically acclaimed.
On the back cover, it says ” a fine piece of muckraking, alarming without being alarmist”.. my sensibilities just couldn’t take anymore.. I got up to CD 5 and couldn’t listen to anymore. “the dark side of the all American meal” The laws in Canada are not the same as the USA, never-the-less… There is a lot of common sense, and ah ha moments. If you are not aware of this book, or this author, then if you are interested in something different.. please check it out. I got mine at the public library, I thought it was something else, I really didn’t peruse it… I just thought it was a quick and easy…. NOT!
The news these days has been so repetitive, bleak and often shake your head, sad.. that I thought it would be a change.. NOT!
Time to find a feel good holiday movie to watch, or simply listen to music, if I thought I could go to sleep, wake up and the world would be different… nah.. that is wishful thinking…
Time to find a quiet world, where the air is clear, thoughts are able to chill, and time for a while, floats in a happy space.
