Bad On Paper

Jul 27, 2022

It’s finally time to discuss our listener-picked Book Club selection: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

We talk about our general feelings about the book, how we reacted to the moments of sexism in the 1960s setting, our thoughts on the main character, and the differing perspectives of the three key women in the book. We also discuss how we felt about the ending and since this book already has a TV adaptation in the works, we talk about our casting thoughts and hear from listeners about the characters they pictured. 

What the book reminds us of
