Description

During the debut, Zott ignores the cue cards Pine had written for her, which is met with disapproval. If you can imagine Julia Child channeling a little bit of Lucille Ball, and all of the science edginess of Madame Curie, then you’ll have a really good idea of the humor and the wit and the warmth that just shine through this entire novel.

True to form, Elizabeth refuses to play ball with the producer, declaring that “There’s nothing average about the average housewife”, and using the show to deliver cracking advice: “Courage is the root of change…Do not allow your talents to lie dormant, ladies. A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, Oprah Daily, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman.I love the story ,quirky and unusual, and the characters are so fine drawn I would recognise them in the street . She made out to have feminist values (ish) and made a big deal about not getting married or having children. The United States edition, with its bubble gum pink cover bearing a stylized woman’s face peering over a pair of cat-eye sunglasses, reads as overtly feminine, a light beach read for a day off. This incredible novel has EVERYTHING - an unforgettable heroine, wry humour, love, family and bucketloads of optimism and female empowerment. On par with Beth Harmon of The Queen’s Gambit, Elizabeth Zott swept me away with her intellect, honesty, and unapologetic selfhood.

She is not a ‘girl boss’ or a ‘lady chemist’; she’s a groundbreaker and an expert in abiogenesis…To file Elizabeth Zott among the pink razors of the book world is to miss the sharpness of Garmus’s message. For those who admire a confident, bone-dry, and hilarious authorial voice, this novel achieves the difficult task of being both sharply satirical and heartwarming at the same time. It is the book you need to get your mindset where it needs to be for all the things you have to do and changes you’ll be making in the year ahead.Except for one: Calvin Evans, the lonely, brilliant, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with - of all things - her mind. It’s rare for a novel to have such a dynamic main character and not have the ensemble characters fade, somewhat, into the background - and I love that Lessons in Chemistry doesn’t do that.

I must admit my fav books are Psychological Thrillers and this is def not one of them but it is absolutely brilliant! The Things That We Lost is a beautifully tender exploration of family, loss and how far we will go to protect the ones we love. A Serving of Crime with a Difference - You May Just Discover Something Unique, Different, or Unusual in These 20 Crime Novels. The neighborhood looks different too, but she’s still the same woman and it’s still the same place, and as the past erupts into view, they slowly collide.

Entirely enjoyable, totally engrossing novel, Garmus' beautifully drawn characters, her polished, engaging prose and a hugely satisfying plot make for a glorious read. I bought this as a digital, due to its high praised trumpeting, but must admit my slight wariness (was this just hype and only hype? It's the world versus Elizabeth Zott, an extraordinary woman determined to live on her own terms, and I had no trouble choosing a side.

Patrick Walker ( Gaslit) and Thomas Mann ( Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) will play Reverend Wakely and Dr.She is a firm advocate for diversity and representation in media especially for female and Asian-centric stories. Garmus said in an interview that she gave minimal input to the script writing and production of the TV adaptation.
