I liked this book very much because it made me think about my food, and the choices I made with it. It made me realize what happens with what I eat, and how it's made. Vegetable or meat. But Pollan made me see that not every farm is bad, but some of them are. Some farms are still organic and stick to the healthy way of farming. But others were very bad. They used pesticides and others abused the animals that live there. I would recommend this book to others, but only if you don't have a big appetite at the time, and if they are ready to learn the cold hard truth about their food.  Find It In Our Catalog

I thought that Reed wrote "Clean" very well because what she included was personal papers which included some background images about the characters. Different perspectives of this novel, which was very helpful so that the reader could see how each of the different characters think about this rehab and of each other. But also how Reed made the characters realize that they all needed to change one way or another. Either by saying no, or just standing up for yourself.   Find It In Our Catalog:

For "1984", I liked how Orwell made it Winston's diary so that the reader could see how it was in this horrifying Utopian novel. But what made me interested the most was that this diary was made to escape Big Brother's tyranny, or at least inside his own mind, and this was punishable by death.   Find It In Our Catalog:
