A deeply unsettling tale of a woman who stops eating meat and incidentally has her marriage and family life unravel around her. The Vegetarian explores some of the darker, more disturbing pits of human motivation and desire…not for the faint of heart.
4 out of 5 stars: Packs quite a punch for such a short book. Does a fantastic job of blurring the lines between mental health and magical realism.
