    Hardcover é Dietland MOBI ✓ dietland epub, DietlandDietland PDFEPUBBefore I go all ranty and piss everyone off, I will say the first part of this book is really good.Plum is overweight That pretty much defines this girls life She keeps telling herself that her real life will begin as soon as she has weight loss surgery and becomes thin Of course, that s bullshit But it s what society has taught Plum to feel about herself.She works from her computer for a teen fashion magazine, giving advice to young girls who write the editor of the magazine Dear Kitty, Dear Kitty handles some of a girls life issues that are pretty hard subjects Plum handles them in a way that made me love her character.at first.You get the past life that made Plum who she is from growing up in a house that a famous actress had lived at Plum felt she was always on display to the tourist sneaking pictures and her try at the weight loss clinic The weight loss guru who started the program lost weight after having a child

    Hardcover é Dietland MOBI ✓ dietland epub, DietlandDietland PDFEPUBIt is jarring to me how many reviews of this book state that people liked the storyline about Plum when she was starving herself, hiding and ashamed of her weight, waiting for the day that she would one day be thin, but that once the book delved into some deep feminist terrorism territory, with the main character finally being able to lash out against the society that made her ashamed of who she was in the first place, Plum is then considered unlikable I think

    Hardcover é Dietland MOBI ✓ dietland epub, DietlandDietland PDFEPUBAn overweight, ridiculed and insecure woman types away on her laptop at a cafe, writing advice to readers of a girl s magazine, before she notices that a punky type in bright tights and combat boots is watching and following her Will this obese woman, whose short life has been defined by calories and diets, be pulled into some kind of underground, feminist commune, and what will she do and learn The first few chapters pulled me in, especially after I read that this was considered a feminist novel by an author versed in that tradition It planted me into a place I hardly ever explored the mind of an obese woman It exposed a few anti feminist notions of mine that I didn t know I had I was often dubious about efforts to get obese women to love their bodies, because wasn t that encouraging unhealthy lifestyles It was ok for me to accept my own, however, even though it was kept skinny partly through coffee and cigarettes I also thought if women claimed that d

    Hardcover é Dietland MOBI ✓ dietland epub, DietlandDietland PDFEPUBI completely disagree with all the reviews in which readers hated the second half of the book OMG, the Jennifer activities terrorist group IS the point Also disagree that the characters are unlikable I was rooting for the women in Calliope House all the way How can you not love Sana If the book had simply addressed Plum and the fat issues, it would have been a much comfortable book The subversion lies in the domestic terrorism being aimed at men, instead of at women which is routine That s what makes it uncomfortable and, I would guess, why some readers hated it This is definitely not a bo
