A stomach-turning and terrific novel...a brilliant and literal dissection of a marriage
Young has created one of the most memorable literary anti-heroines... A beautifully nuanced and gentle portrayal of a quietly desperate woman
'Season to Taste is written in a laconic, pared-down style that immediately brings to mind Camus' L'Etranger. If that seems a somewhat grand comparison, it is not, for Young's book is one of those rare beasts - a literary novel of ideas written in simple language that could be both a university set text and a supermarket bestseller'
'Brilliantly disturbing... echoes of Roald Dahl's dark adult fiction... fascinating in the most gruesome way. Delicious!'
Move over Fifty Shades, there's a brand new genre whipping the publishing world into a murderous frenzy
Young delivers an authentic portrait of a neglected marriage, and her light and compelling prose carries this macabre tale along
Not for the faint-hearted, this is a brilliant dark tale of an unassuming woman trying to cook her way out of her murderous predicament
Engrossingly depicts not only bodily appetite but the deepest emotional hunger pangs of being human...compulsively readable
Dark and twisted, but beautifully written with a sprinkling of humour
Is this the female American psycho? Quite possibly
Young writes in a wonderfully detached, dry-as-a-bone (!) style. A thunderclap, definitely
I couldn't resist...Tasty!
Season to Taste is a modern-day fable about the end of love and moving on. Natalie Young has given us a shockingly, thrillingly new vantage on a timeless story of marriage's demise
A wholly unique and brilliantly witty dark comedy
Young is relentless in poking our food-obsessed culture right in the eye. This book, however, is so much more than a slicing satire. It is a thriller in the truest sense. I swallowed it whole, eager and enthralled. The narrative is crisp and snappy, the dialogue sparse, the pace never skips a beat. Lizzie Prain's isolation is palpable, her despair is as hot and urgent as her blind panic. It is a rare gem, this novel, appealing to the popular fiction market and equally providing a gluttonous feast for the literati
Stomach-churning and terrific
Daring, groundbreaking and original
If prizes were given out for this year's most unreliable narrator, Lizzie Prain would be the one to beat
An enjoyable feast of anger - witty and poised
Set to be one of the most talked about - and most gruesome - books of 2014
This darkly funny book will leave you craving more as Young charts the extraordinary disposal process with unerring and at times uncomfortable detail and triumphs by blending social satire with biting wit
One of the most talked-about books of the year...filled with black humour
