After the scandalous events at her presentation ball in London, Lady Helen is banished from her family and has taken refuge at the fashionable seaside resort of Brighton.

As she struggles to put aside her genteel upbringing, Helen realises that her mentor, Lord Carlston, is fighting his own inner battle.

ظل يُقال لنا طيلة عشرات السنوات إن التفكير الإيجابي هو المفتاح إلى حياة سعيدة ثرية. لكن مارك مانسون يشتم تلك "الإيجابية" ويقول: " فلنكن صادقين، السيء سيء وعلينا أن نتعايش مع هذا ". لا يتهرّب مانسون من الحقائق ولا يغلفها بالسكّر، بل يقولها لنا كما هي: جرعة من الحقيقة الفجِّة الصادقة المنعشة هي ما ينقصنا اليوم. هذا الكتاب ترياق للذهنية التي نهدهد أنفسنا بها، ذهنية " فلنعمل على أن يكون لدينا كلنا شعور طيب " التي غزت المجتمع المعاصر فأفسدت جيلًا بأسره صار ينال ميداليات ذهبية لمجرد الحضور إلى المدرسة. ينصحنا مانسون بأن نعرف حدود إمكاناتنا وأن نتقبلها. وأن ندرك مخاوفنا ونواقصنا وما لسنا واثقين منه، وأن نكفّ عن التهرب والفرار من ذلك كله ونبدأ مواجهة الحقائق الموجعة، حتى نصير قادرين على العثور على ما نبحث عنه من جرأة ومثابرة وصدق ومسؤولية وتسامح وحب للمعرفة. لا يستطيع كل شخص أن يكون متميزًا متفوقًا. ففي المجتمع ناجحين وفاشلين؛ وقسم من هذا الواقع ليس عادلًا وليس نتيجة غلطتك أنت. وصحيح أن المال شيء حسن، لكن اهتمامك بما تفعله بحياتك أحسن كثيرًا؛ فالتجربة هي الثروة الحقيقية.

تأخذنا رواية "النباتية" إلى عوالم فائضة الإنسانية وجامحة المشاعر حتى الاستهجان، وسط صراعات سطوة العائلة ورتابة المجتمع واستهلاك الذات في طاحونة يومياتنا ليستيقظ الجسد على انتفاضته القاطعة, ليونغ هي التي فجأة صحت من حلم رافضة أكل أي نوع من اللحوم واتخذت من النباتية مسارًا لتغذيتها، قبل أن يتكشف لنا رويدًا رويدًا أن للقرار فلسفته، والتي انجرّ إليها أيضا زوج شقيقتها الكبرى ليخوضا في علاقة حميمية حد التماهي بين جسدين دون أن ينطقا بكلمة واحدة، يتماهيان بمشهد جسدي واحد للوحة ملحمية تشكل حيزًا كبيرًا من فانتازيا الرواية، ويتداخلان في مشهد سريالي يرسمه ويوثقه زوج شقيقتها الرسام الذي ظهر فجأة كشخصية محورية من الرواية بعدما كان هامشيًا في فصولها الاولى. سؤال عن مسببات الحياة ومبررات البقاء تطرحه الرواية بوحشية من خلال رفض بطلتها لأي وسيلة من وسائل إدخال الغذاء لجسدها، كأنها تقول لا شيء يستحق البقاء إلا بضعة ورود وأشجار قد تولد من أجسادنا إذا ما التصقنا بالأرض لنستمد قوتنا منها. جرأة تتركنا امام استسهال الموت في سبيل الفكرة وتهزأ بنا لاننا نواصل حياتنا بيوميات تبدو رتيبة اذا ما قيست بانتفاضة النباتية.

في أثناء الحرب، اعتاد " تولستوي " النظر إلى مشاهد الموت، إلا أن هذا الموت كان ينزل بالآخرين؛ وذلك ما صرف نظره عن التفكير فيه، حتى آل به الأمر إلى عدم إعارته أي اهتمام، أما في هدأة السلم وطمأنينته، فماذا عسى أن يكون موقفه منه ؟ لقد كان "تولستوي" يقول عن نفسه: إنه "معتل الصحة، قوي البنية"، فما سر هذا الإحساس بالضيق الذي كان ينتابه، أو تلك الحمى التي كانت تعتريه؟ وما بعث شعور القلق والخوف الذي كان يستبد به في أمسية كل يوم حين تقترب الساعة السادسة؟. كان "تولستوي" متخوفاً، وكان إحساسه بالخوف يعدل نشوة الحياة التي يكاد يعيش فيها دائماً، فلقد كان هناك على الأخص ذلك المرض الوراثي في أسرته، وسيطر على تفكيره "كابوس السل"؛ إذ أنه رأى اثنين من إخوته يذهبان ضحية هذا الداء العضال.
