But is it already too late? Corpus Dementica, the mega-corporation that also serves as the government, factory farms humans to be used as food, raw materials, labor, and entertainment. Pearl is mistaken for human and mistreated as livestock in a dairy. With the help of friends old and new, can Pearl escape the dairy, compel The Glorious to stop exploiting humans, and finally experience true love?

But beyond the engaging and beautifully written tale is a thought-provoking subtext that could change your life! The Vampire and The Vegan will make you think twice before your next bite. I am continually amazed at the vitriol, thinly disguised as "humorous" sarcasm, that I endure from some people.

While I don't criticize people for eating meat, many seem perfectly comfortable criticizing me for my choice not to eat meat. Given tha I've been a vegetarian for 18 years, and was vegan for about two years. Given that background, I was thrilled to come across this book. I was hoping for insight into why certain people become angry, while others feel the need to avoid me, particularly in regards to sharing meals.

I was also interested in the lifestyle choices that often come with the choice to be vegetarian or vegan, and society's assumptions regarding those choices. This book does offer that information, to some degree, though getting there requires patience. First, the 'introduction' is excessively long, about 25 pages. This in itself isn't as much the problem as the content. It reads like a dissertation proposal, with language that is dry and academic. Then we move on to the book's content. I was looking forward to a kind of broad cultural exploration. But much of the book's focus is quite narrow.

Multiple chapters cover specific TV shows and movies in regards to what is sometimes an obscure portrayal of vegan diet and lifestyle.

The author dissects these shows, finding, within them, issues pertaining to vegans that many of us might not even have picked up on. The writing remains dry and removed, academic rather than narrative, making it harder to find footing without context. I read a lot of nonfiction, and I'm rarely bothered by academic-style writing. But, while this book has a few nuggets of information, the whole of it feels more suited to a college classroom as part of a specific discussion. That might well have been the intention, in which case the content will inspire some interesting debates. However, I don't see this book crossing over into the mainstream, which is disappointing.

Nov 02, John Yunker added it. The fact is, the word represents disruption on an enormous scale — to food industries, political systems, religious traditions, family traditions, and personal relationships. This word can make people uncomfortable. There was a time in my life, not many years ago, when it made me uncomfortable.

The book is largely academic in nature, with plenty of footnotes and references to other academic works. But there are also numerous personal narratives included. Some people are vegan for animals, some for diet, some for allergies, some for all of the above.

But Wright illustrates how commonly vegans are portrayed by media and popular culture as one entity: More culturally loaded words. This is a book that poses considerably more questions than it answers, which is by design. Do celebrities help the movement when they go vegan? And do they do more harm than good when they give it up? Neal Barnard is one of a growing number of doctors who have made good progress in debunking the myths surrounding vegan diets and children.

Wright devotes significant attention to the popularity of vampire books, TV and film, examining the evolution of vampires. Veganism and eating disorders: Is veganism the cause of some eating disorders as some people claim or does it represent a path away from eating disorders? I find this area particularly interesting because veganism is often viewed as a lifestyle of deprivation — and, if not embarked upon properly, sometimes it can be.

Many restaurants still make it difficult to eat vegan, but this is changing — and quickly. How will veganism be portrayed in the years ahead as food choices become more commonplace and more affordable?

Fortunately, many men are challenging this worldview, proving through bodybuilding or running that men can thrive without eating meat. Religion should also be included in this field of study and was curiously missing from the book. I would love to see more researchers tackle how religious works are used to defend meat eating as well as to defend not eating meat.

The notion of not eating animals apparently goes back to Pythagoras. But I do find it maddening how over the past few hundred years the movement has bubbled up for periods of time only to fade again from mainstream view. Her relationship with Salaam blossoms throughout the book and Salaam's sensibilities are well played through the author.

I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a different take on what they already have read about vampires. This book is well written with excellent character development and the story keeps the reader involved to the last page. I look forward to the rest of the series. See all 15 reviews.
