Walker captures a lot of what being fat and internalizing hatred is like, though Plum is taken to an extreme. The plot doesn't quite gel, though, especially towards the end. ( )

This book ties with Eleanor Oliphant for best fiction that I read in 2019. Now let's go start a revolution!!! ( )

Dietland is unexpectedly the best book I've read this year (certainly earns a spot on my all-time favorites lists). Walker created an intricately layered bombshell of a novel while she pushed boundaries and explored uncomfortable truths with perfect levity. The carefully constructed plot is so clever and fluid. I could not put this one down! Dietland elicits all the right responses from the reader: laughter, outrage, sympathy, intrigue; and at the end said reader just might find it hard not to root for Jennifer's revenge plot especially as it parallels Plum's own fight for self-acceptance. This book is just so smart and brave. ( )

Dietland could be called a fairy tale about obesity and self-acceptance. Like many fat people, thirty year old Plum believes that her "real life" will begin once she sheds her excess pounds. She even plans on having bariatric surgery to kickstart the process. But then she attracts the attention of diet-program heiress Verena, who, like a fairy godmother, leads her through a series of tasks to help her adopt a more positive approach to food and weight.

I liked the parts about Plum's journey to self-acceptance, but the book almost lost me when the violent Jennifer subplot took over in the second half. I recommend this novel with reservations. ( )

This book is not what the title implies with the secondary plot coming out of no where. While definitely not a well rounded examination of the way the world treats women it makes it points and provides some topics for further thought/discussion. ( )

She waited for a few minutes to see if she was going to shrink any further: she felt a little nervous about this; "for it might end, you know," said Alice to herself, "in my going out altogether, like a candle. I wonder what I would be like then?"

It was late in the spring when I noticed that a girl was following me, nearly the end of May, a month that means perhaps or might be.
