Publisher's Summary

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 ...
The Edible Woman is a funny, engaging novel about emotional cannibalism, men and women, and desire to be consumed.

Whilst I did enjoy this audiobook I think I would get more from it on a second listen. Although the story was compelling I wasn't sure what to expect or where it was going during some parts during my original listen.

Lorelei King is a great performer, I have listened to The Thorn Birds as read by her many times and this performance was just as good.

This is only my second Margaret Atwood book and I would definitely try more based on this one.
