Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
Genre: Historical Fiction
Read: March 2023

I don’t typically like this sort of genre, but I must say, I loved this from beginning to end.

It’s every single emotion written into one book. It captures the era perfectly and hones in on the assumptions and blatant sexism women endured in this time, however, it’s not all bad. The people Elizabeth Zott meets throughout her story who rally behind her is so heartwarming. Elizabeth is quite simply fabulous, I love her and wish she was real so I could meet her! Equally amazing is her daughter Mad and dog Six-Thirty.

Overall, I think the author did an amazing job with this! I’m always a sucker for strong female characters, and Elizabeth Zott has topped every expectation.

Despite Elizabeth being a bit of an unlikable character (the pretentious use of chemical terminology in place of common vernacular/labels was ridiculous), the graphic on page rape and sexual assault scenes, the unbelievable bits (my 3.5 year old could read and write but ain’t nobody believes a 4 year old is reading and comprehending complex Russian literature), and the other problematic parts, I actually really enjoyed this.

I liked the writing style and a lot of the other characters. There was a lovely found family aspect and the romance was gut wrenching and beautiful - the grief hit me in the feels hard. I liked the feminist aspects and pacing also.

Loved this. Miniseries was so enjoyable, and the book is even better.

This is somewhere between a 3 and a 4 for me--and I went back and forth on how to rate it. At the beginning I was underwhelmed, but the story grew on me as I listened to it. It's set in the 1960s I believe--at a time when women scientists were few and women in most workplaces dealt with sexual harassment. What I liked: *Elizabeth Zott--a female in chemistry at a time when there were probably few women chemists in the United States *That Elizabeth didn't dumb down her cooking show for the female audience but believed that they could understand complex chemical concepts--and for encouraging women to follow their dreams even if their skill set fell outside what the norms for women at the time were. *SixThirty (the dog). I just fell in love with him from the time he was introduced. What I didn't like: *Much as I do feel Calvin and Elizabeth were soulmates--I didn't like that they never got married (Elizabeth seemed opposed to marriage)--and I didn't like that they were intimate outside of marriage. We don't really know if Elizabeth's pregnancy would have changed their relationship status. *Sexist attitudes: Elizabeth's professor, Elizabeth's boss at Hastings, Mrs. Mudford Etc.… (plus d'informations)
