To me, this book said little more than "Fast Food Corporations are also Corporations." Granted, it puts a lot of well-researched and well-written facts and stories in between, but it said nothing that ... Read full review

This book absolutely disgusted me. I was sickeningly enthralled by the nature of the fast food industry. This book reminded me of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, even though I have yet to read it. I cannot believe the state of our meat packing plants, and even more I cannot believe what companies like McDonalds and Burger King are willing to feed us, or what we are willing to unknowingly eat. I am of the opinion that even if we know what we are ingesting when we eat fast food, we'd still eat it. The stories told within this novel are quite sad ones, especially the one of the girl that has to work such long shifts just to help her family out. This book is a good read, and it might just change a few minds while turning a few stomachs.

Pretty good, but I, being only 12, find it hard to understand. Also, it can be pretty gross, but I guess that's the whole point of muckraking.....

User Review  - Manny - Goodreads

There's a witty and disturbing satire by Stanislaw Lem called The Futurological Congress. It's one of those books where the hero gradually comes to understand that the world isn't as it seems. He's ... Read full review

User Review  - Thomas - Goodreads

Fast Food Nation was an interestingly revealing read. Instead of focusing solely on the food, Schlosser wrote a lot about the fast food industry itself and how people are being consummately sucked ... Read full review

Saying this book changed my life is a little dramatic but "natural" flavoring and Walt Disney have never been the same for me. Read full review
