Marian is truly ordinary, just waiting to get married. She likes her work, her broody flatmate, and her sober fiancé Peter. All goes well at first, but Marian has reckoned without an inner self that wants something more, an inner self that calmly sabotages her careful plans and stable routine: and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach. Download and start listening now!

    " For Margaret Atwood, I thought the plot of Edible Woman was slow and not very engaging. While I thought some of the ideas presented were interesting, I don't think they were pushed far enough or resolved very well. Perhaps this has to do with the fact that his book was written in the '60s and we have come a long way since then. In a way, it is interesting to consider how this book might have been edgy then for it's ideas on female independence and agency but falls flat now due to a shift in the social norms. I would recommend Oryx and Crake over Edible Woman, both for it's pacing and also relevancy. "

    " My favorite thing about this book was the theme that as this woman (Marion) decides to marry the wrong person, she starts losing her appetite and feels like she is being eaten and changed to suit her fiance. In the end, she finally eats a cake in the shape of herself to regain control of her life. "

    " would have to read again to judge it fairly - read it when i was much younger, and only remember hearing margaret's droning monotone voice in my head the whole time. "

    " gosh,i can't believe this book was written in the sixties. a whole lot of different time, but i can still relate to some particular points that the writer stressed. this is the 1st book of Atwood that i read, and is actually her first novel as well. i like her way of writing. quirky, witty and also to the point. may take another stabs at her other novels.
