Hi, Dr Gonzo ,
I read this extraordinary write at your request. From the get-go, I read this story aloud; for me, the best way to travel inside the story about hunting, pigs, and morals and undergoing the sensations described how to kill pigs, and more importantly, what it means to the pig to be chased and hunted down by people. I never knew, being a city girl who goes to the supermarket to score the meat, come home and prepare the food, never knowing where it comes from and what the history is behind that delicious piece of meat.
This piece was an eye-opener, a story in between the adventures of the piglet Babe and the thrilling story of Watership Down by Adams.
When I finished reading, I wanted to become a vegetarian, if only meat didn't taste that good.
An incredible story, written first hand by a hunter who, after this experience, stopped hunting altogether.
It was a pleasure reading it, you are a great storyteller, and the change halfway of perspective did the trick.
Thanks for sharing, and keep on writing!
