VegBooks.org Review – The Bugabees – Friends With Food Allergies

My latest review is up on VegBooks.org!  The Bugabees – Friends With Food Allergies (click the link for my review) by Amy Recob and 64 Colors.  It ended up being a pretty personal review but I think it has information that I was curious about when I purchased the book.  I have some reservations but it has been popular with E.  I teared up the first time I read it because I thought of all the situations where she won’t be able to eat like her friends but I think we really have to divorce ourselves from associating food with emotions, positive or negative.

A great read, by the way, that covers the emotional and social aspects of food is Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer (amazon affiliate link).  I couldn’t put it down, even though it is non-fiction it is that good.  Brilliant stuff, makes me wish I was a writer.  Another non-fiction book I couldn’t put down is The Greatest Show on Earth by Richard Dawkins (amazon affiliate link), I don’t mean to go off topic but it came to mind and it is brilliant.  Some slow bits but I could follow most of the science and it is my favorite by Dawkins.  I kept stopping to tell my husband snippets from both books, the only downside is that sometimes when I do that he remarks that he doesn’t need to read the book because I already told him the good stuff.

    1. Thank you! I think you will enjoy it. Well, I guess “enjoy” might be the wrong word because it does recount some of the sad circumstances of farm animals but it keeps you engaged.

  1. You did such a great job with your review! On the (somewhat off-) topic of interesting non-fiction, Joan Didion’s “The Year of Magical Thinking” falls into that category, too. So readable it feels like fiction, more moving because it isn’t.

    1. Exactly, that is really one that captures your attention. Must make a proper list, I do enjoy non-fiction. Had to return The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks to the library but it started well.
