Mine is an alternative review of Garmus' novel: the novel was downright depressing and annoyingly full of skewed lab tropes and excessive descriptions of rape. To explain my difficulty with this narrative, I was influenced largely by the abysmal harassment (sexual and otherwise) and data theft. Sadly, much of my career in science was tainted with similar discriminatory episodes, though not to the extent of rape.

It is a sad truth that these workplace conditions described in the book are still rampant in many women's careers, not just scientific research. Garmus' story of what her MC faced was certainly a trope, which held some truths. Despite the touted improvements of enlightened workplaces and gender equity, the old boys network thrives. Chemistry, maths, computer science, engineering and physics are frequently prone to this discriminatory culture. It is hard to have an unbiased view of this story, especially suffering through reading some poorly described lab practices, as well as a rather unrealistic view of the very bright child. One is left wondering whether the author asked a manuscript reader with a strong scientific background to provide feedback?… (mer)

Clever; a bit cliched; page turner style kept my interest
