Yes. This guy knows if he posts 3 sentences to represent an entire chapter in a book, that most people won't read the book and would rather read the three sentences. He forgot to tell you that his three sentences are stretches from his obviously biased hate.
Hughes lived on a farm where he also worked. Part of living on a farm often entails killing animals for food. I'm not going to go into details about how the book describes it, because I am biased as well. I suggest if you want to form an opinion on the book.... that you actually read the book (I know, it's a shocker).
So, he didn't mutilate a piglets testicles and then rip open its stomach for fun?
