The Edible Woman – Margaret Atwood

Marian is determined to be ordinary. She lays her head gently on the shoulder of her serious fiancee and quietly awaits marriage. But she didn’t count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine, and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can’t stomach … –

I read this novel quite a while ago in the Summer months and absolutely fell in love. Atwood has a talent for creating a visceral and almost physical presence within her characters and world that makes you feel you’re a part of it, feeling what they feel and thinking what they think. Or is that just me being overly attached?

I’d definitely recommend reading this one in Summer, especially over a break, it’s not too long and it’s not too challenging but it’s incredibly weird.

Five star novel. You won’t want to put this down!
