Dietland is a book that is for all women, but it is also a book that is intensely personal. It is very funny, very smart, and utterly absorbing.
It contains scenes of graphic violence, but left me feeling comforted and energized. Read Dietland as a love letter to all women, and to yourself.

I am positive that what made this book so awesome was that I knew virtually nothing "I hated it when others alluded to my size, despite the obviousness of it.
I am positive that what made this book so awesome was that I knew virtually nothing about the characters, themes or plot beforehand.
If you decide to read this anytime soon, I recommend not reading too many plot heavy reviews; it will spoil the punchy message of the book.
Plum hovers around pounds and lives a predictable life as a magazine columnist in Brooklyn, New York. A series of strange events force her out of the protective shell she's created for herself, and into the center of a feminist movement that's taking over the world.
I've never read The Feminine Mystique or anything in that genre, so this book was really fresh to me. It made me feel better about myself! I loved watching Plum transform from the inside out, and her final realization about her body made tears well up in my eyes.
I think it's easy to forget that simple message, but it's one I will remind myself of constantly. I had never appreciated or loved the body that had done so much for me.
The body was me. This is your real life. View all 19 comments. May 05, Dana rated it liked it Shelves: wtf , borrow , , netgalley. Dietland felt like it didn't know what kind of book it wanted to be.
On one hand it was focused on an overweight woman struggling with her life and the decision of whether or not to get weight loss surgery.
On the other other hand it was about a Neo-Feminist vigilant group that's on a killing spree. The second part came out of nowhere, and we never really know what is going on It didn't help that th Well It didn't help that the main character was so abrasive.
While I do think there were some amazing feminist tidbits in this book, overall it just went to too many extremes, and for me that ended up making the story a bit of a joke.
I think at times I can be a bit blind when it comes to sexism in society, and this book really makes you open your eyes and realize that this behavior should not simply be considered normal.

Totally bonkers in the best possible way! Feminist terrorist collective! Ridiculously named shades of nail polish!
Mortifying letters from teenage girls one of the best genres out there! Horrifying medical procedures! And somehow this book is hilarious, entertaining, fast-paced, and thought-provoking.
You will like this book if you are a mild-mannered feminist who nonetheless cherishes a very dark sense of humor. I would LOVE to have a book club conversation on this book; it would be a fantasti Totally bonkers in the best possible way!

Jul 29, Chelsea chelseadolling reads marked it as did-not-finish. I appreciated what it was doing, but it was giving me some weird feelings regarding my own self-love journey and I just decided to put it down.
I definitely still recommend trying this one out for yourself! Nov 07, jv poore rated it it was amazing Shelves: own-it-arc , first-reads , realistic-fiction.
Reading Dietland is indubitably equivalent to walking a mile in the enormous shoes of our nearly thirty year old, three-hundred-four-pound narrator, Plum.
Until now. This unprecedented presentation of current social issues is more than thought-provoking. It is painful and tragic, with portions that are harsh, raw, and deserving of deliberation.
Commanding characters create empathy and sympathy as they uncomfo Reading Dietland is indubitably equivalent to walking a mile in the enormous shoes of our nearly thirty year old, three-hundred-four-pound narrator, Plum.
Commanding characters create empathy and sympathy as they uncomfortably reveal reasons for actions. The potpourri of concerns surrounding our narrator include: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, female vigilantes, fat-shaming, feminism and self-acceptance.
Walker unapologetically strips down her characters yes, literally The reader meets Plum in present day to fully understand her lifestyle and goals.
Where she is, where she thinks she will be. Why she is being stalked. Buried in the book, Plum gradually moves away from her daily correspondence with teen girls to spending face-to-face time with grown women.
Life-goals beg reexamination. My very favorite thing about Dietland is the long list of quotes I pulled. The words grabbed me while I was reading, enough to be worthy of highlight, and that is spectacular thing; but reviewing the quotes later, out of context…..
When I read this the first time, my crystal ball told me that after the May release, we would be hearing a lot about Dietland.
I did not expect to be reading about the casting for the television series in , however. This should be interesting. Jun 22, Melody Sams rated it it was amazing.
If orange is the new black, then Jennifer is the new orange. Get with it! Or get with her, I should say. And it needed it badly. What a brilliant mix of storytelling and social commentary!
Dietland should be read by women everywhere. After seeing the show on AMC, I did a little research and realized it was based on a book.
I ate it up, and so should you! Jun 03, Holly rated it it was ok. I wanted to like this book. The main character has potential, the message is a positively feministic one with the right underlying aura of needed societal change.
However, the storyline was just too bizarre for me and the characters too outlandish. Everyone is the "nth" degree in personality or opinion concerning just about everything and everything in this book comes down to the objectivization of women.
The females were all too strident in their tone and all the men were lascivious animals. It was hard to take the message seriously with all these over-the-top characterizations.
Sorry to be counter to many five star ratings but I just didn't see the allure of this novel and yet I read it until the very end thinking I was missing something.
In the end it just wasn't there. Feb 15, Cristina rated it it was ok. I started out enjoying this book very much, the story of Plum and her struggles with weight loss, her lifelong obsession with food and dieting but it took a strange turn with the story of Jennifer and I love strange turns but this one was negative and a bit random, it slowly made me dislike all the characters including and especially Plum who turned from a hopeful dreamer into an angry ,confrontational and quite unlikeable young woman.
Jun 11, Jill rated it it was ok. Sadly, I thought this was a slightly muddled mess of missed opportunities.
The premise was fantastic; Plum, a morbidly obese woman who ghost-writes an advice column for the uber-cool and svelte publisher of a teen magazine, comes into the crosshairs of a slightly subversive group of women who want to change the world AND convince Plum to accept herself as she is.
There are actually two groups in the book. One group is the kooky, don't know exactly what they are going to accomplish Calliope House Sadly, I thought this was a slightly muddled mess of missed opportunities.
One group is the kooky, don't know exactly what they are going to accomplish Calliope House Collective that takes Plum under their wing.
I felt too much time was spent on this group and their 'work' with Plum and yes, I understand that Plum is the Everywoman symbol here - if she can change, our society can change, etc.
Too much time and detail spent on Plum navel gazing, baking and spending time in the porn room yawn! The missed opportunity is with the second group - the elusive "Jennifer".
They are a feminist group along the lines of the hacker group 'Anonymous'. They aren't afraid to resort to kidnapping and murder to accomplish their purpose of improving women's lives.
THAT was the story I wanted to read and felt like I kept getting teased with Jennifer tidbits without getting their full story. A prime example of this was the storyline of Julia, the makeup warehouse 'keeper' who is undercover and gathering dirt on the womens' magazines publisher.
She appears all throughout the book Make the Jennifer group the story here, explore more what could happen when women rise up to change their world.
THAT would be an exciting read. Mar 01, Frankie Brown rated it it was amazing Shelves: feminist-lit , intersectionality , favorites , complicated-ladies.
I already know this will be one of my top books of It was everything I needed, the book I've been craving for years.
A delicious feminist revenge fantasy. I stand by my original assessment of: If Margaret Atwood and Jennifer Weiner had a love child, this book might be it!
However - this book is ambitious - is perhaps even undone by its own ambition - so it deserves a more thorough review. It's also an impressive debut by a clearly skilled, vivid, creative writer with ideas, so I encourage a read even though I ended up feeling unsure about the book overall.
And I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this author in the future. So why am I so ambiv I stand by my original assessment of: If Margaret Atwood and Jennifer Weiner had a love child, this book might be it!
So why am I so ambivalent in my rating despite all that praise? Well - do you remember how, if you went to high school or college, you perhaps had your first paradigm-shifting encounters with a new to you philosophy or discourse?
For me it was Marx, Foucault, and, of course, as a student of gender studies, the many thinkers and authors who have contributed to feminist thought and theory.
It's very exciting to encounter these kinds of ideas for the first time, and one rite of passage is that the youthful collision with such ideas can and should generate some degree of identity crisis the good kind as one grapples with and metabolizes these ideas and then synthesizes them with one's existing ideas and sense of self in order to advance into a more mature iteration of self.
Obviously this process works more smoothly for some people than others, but with anyone, it's not uncommon or unexpected to experience some growing pains whilst trying on the various new versions of self, Goldilocks-like, in search of just the right fit.
After all, these new ideas can be a shock to the system - for example, if you're a young woman, discovering the whole concept of patriarchy and how patriarchal ideas have unknowingly shaped your identity, thinking, behavior, emotions, decisions, priorities, goals, self-image.
That's heavy stuff, and it can be difficult to deal with. And although I'm certainly very grateful to have gone through that difficult growth process to emerge my present-day self - I don't know that I'd want to revisit those days when my peers and I were all struggling to spread our wings and fledge our respective nests.
There is a hard-won beauty in the wisdom that comes with age and experience, and I'm not anxious to turn back the clock!
But - In the end, I felt it took me back to a place I had already been like, Women's Studies and and didn't necessarily need to return.
But- I still would have been glad to return! While the idea of feminist uprising is cool - unfortunately, the perpetrators of this activism use extreme violence to protest and communicate their message.
And I'm not talking about militant techniques a la PETA or Greenpeace; I'm talking about ISIS-type tactics. While I get the underlying point that the interpersonal and political violence perpetrated by patriarchy is "just as violent" as actual physical violence - I don't know, when it comes to fighting oppression and injustice, it's just not my approach to fight violence with violence.
So there are some trigger warning here in that some of the descriptions of retaliatory violence are quite hardcore, even though the victims are supposedly deserving.
There are also some detailed descriptions of pretty degrading hardcore porn, which could be triggering too, as well as descriptions of binge eating that I found perhaps the most upsetting because I thought for a while that the author was going in a very unhealthy direction with her messaging, although she ultimately rights this course toward the conclusion of the book.
Aside from these warnings - know that I would not have taken the time to review the book, and provide all these caveats, if I didn't also want to pique your curiosity!
It's a really passionate, unique, engaging book with a worthwhile message delivered in a very interesting manner! For me, the delivery system was just a little bit of an overkill - the author doesn't need to "kill a fly with a hammer" when she's addressing her messaging to the already informed and converted.
But for readers to whom these messages are less familiar, perhaps the "big guns" are called for. After all, lord knows the message is important enough to legitimate her efforts, and some of those growing pains back in WS were pretty sharp, as I recall.
So buckle up your seat belts for this hilarious ride that can at times throw you off the edges off your seats. Synopsis: The wickedly funny feminist revenge fantasy that takes on the beauty industry, gender inequality and our weight-loss obsessed culture with fists flying.
Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you're fat, to be noticed is to be judged.
