This review is from: The Edible Woman (Paperback)
Despite this being the last of Atwoods books I have read, I found it the most refreshing , if lacking in the seriousness of her latter works. It takes a witty magnifyed look at eating disorders, empty relationships and looks into the beauty of banality, from which buds a new, more real world. It is very much a coming of age book and an exploration of self realisation, where you see our main character fall out of love with the common ideal, and right into the boho life of another.Anyway I'll stop harping on about the plot, and just leave you to discover this amazing novel which left me with muchos satisfaction!
