This is an interesting book, but it is nothing like the movie would have it seem. It reads more like a well-researched paper than a novel. It tells the story of the history of fast food in America, from its inception in the mid 20th century to its current state of a hamburger joint on every block.

It also makes mention of the plight of slaughterhouse workers and makes you question what exactly is in that burger from the dollar menu. Though I admit, I still enjoy a littlle McDonald's every now and then, it definitely made me think twice about whether having fast and convenient food is really worth the costs our society has to pay for it.

Some parts of the story are a little bland, but overall it is interesting, and it is a real eye opener into the changes in our society over the past few decades. Worth a read.
