I was disturbed. Having to present this book, I had to look into it more. Because of this, I was disturbed by the fact that people still use such hazardous chemicals on their lawn, even though they are aware of the possible damage. However, I still like the appeal of lawns.
I really liked this book because it was something different. It was a very fun read. Yes, it was kind of hard to relate back to the class, but when you think about it, being idle is to enjoy doing nothing. So go outside, sit under a tree, do nothing and enjoy it.
I found this read very boring. It was hard to read because it was printed in very small print, which made it difficult to concentrate, but what I did read, I did not really care about. It’s good to have that information and knowledge, but I really don’t care. However, I think that it relates to the class well.
I thought it was written cleverly. I think that because it was written in laymen’s terms and easy to relate to, it was a fun read. It was interesting to see the author’s take on what they were writing about.
I actually kind of liked reading this book. I had never heard of the meadowlands, part because I’ve never been to New Jersey, and part because I’m not huge into environmental issues (a reason I am taking this class). Sullivan writes very clearly and made it easy to understand, even if you had never taken an environmental class before.
