I have already written a couple of posts about The Omnivore’s Dilemma so I will keep this one short. By the number of posts, you may be able to decipher that I found this book to be fascinating. The entire book is filled with information, almost all of which I did not previously know. But it does not read like a list of facts. There were times when the author, Michael Pollan, would spend several pages explaining something and I would think, “This should not be interesting, but it is!”
Although it only took me about two weeks to finish, The Omnivore’s Dilemma felt like a journey. Not a long, drawn out, let’s get this over with, journey but one that is satisfying throughout and fills you with a sense of accomplishment at its completion. I recommend this book to everyone; we should all know (and want to know) what it is we are putting into our stomachs.
