Whisper Network Of all the stories from female authors that have been published this month, this is the one Reese chooses for her book club I mean it s her book club, she can do whatever she wants, but I normally understand why a book is highlighted and right now I m confused While this is a timely story with somewhat meaningful commentary on womanhood, wifehood, motherhood and the power relations at play on the work field between men and women, the plot itself is nothing captivating because nothing new is actually being said And I could not stand the narration style It reminded me too much of those TV series that have a narrator narrating everything that is happening, even though the viewer is able to understand that on their own There were many series like that in Romania, where I spent time this summer, and they drove me absolutely crazy For example, you see a woman on the screen approaching another person and you hear the narrator say, Alicia doesn t know how to approach Clive She is deeply in love with him but is afraid to show her real feelings because she doesn t want to be rejected Omg stop The writing is good, though The author does over describe or over explain but she does so in a way that is straight forward and clear, not confusing or unnecessarily purple y The story is not what is promised I was promised a thriller or at least an interesting mystery but it s a very soft type of mystery that is only a mystery because most of us are human beings who cannot read the future and so cannot predict what will happen in twenty, fifty, two hundred pages If you don t care that little will shock or surprise you and you simply want to read a story about female bonds, ambition and revenge with different not quite memorable POVs and an unconventional narration style, I will not keep you from reading this book.Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin By whispering, whose secrets were we keeping anyway ours or theirs Whose interests did our silence ultimately protect we grew tired of whispering because what were we hiding, after all We had stories, all of us Would speaking up cost us Maybe But maybe it would cost them, tooSo while this book definitely speaks to an important and timely issue for women, I simply did not love how it was executed here It s billed as a thriller that is part murder mystery and part manifesto it is not If you go into this expecting a thriller, you will be disappointed by the execution in my opinion, it doesn t live up to the genre I d definitely classify this as women s fiction with a whodunnit death thrown in Unfortunately, I had a hard time with this book The characters never fully resonated with me and I kept putting the book down in favor of others I was reading The Whisper Network definitely has a slow burn build up and I m generally not a fan of those I did enjoy the end and despite having some thoughts on it, I didn t have the whodunnit figured out exactly which I appreciated Still, the book was overall just an okay read for me While I appreciate Chandler Baker s intentions definitely read the author s note and her desire to be a voice for women and support the brave women who have stopped whispering this is not a book I d wholeheartedly recommend to friends or try to thrust in a fellow reader s hands. 4.5 STARS An corporate office full of whispers, tension, and secrets MeTOO BuzzyBook If you are tired of predictable thrillers that seem too formulaic, give this time bomb of secrets, lies, and regrets a go It still has the feel of a thriller, but so much.I was drawn into the whole atmosphere of Truviv, Inc The tension that developed after the CEO s sudden death, what that would mean for the women who had worked there for years, and the anxiety that surrounded his replacement This prompts an increase in the whispers and banding together of the women I felt like I really got to know the women and was happy they supported each other So much to think about When the women decide enough is enough, things get wildly out of control and the consequences to everyone s actions come into question Who will survive Who is telling the truth Who has something to hide I enjoyed the structure of the eye accounts, past present chapters, deposition transcripts, employee statements and interviews It really kept the story moving and

encouraging, the women s story who knows to say no and who are ready to fight back stars This is amazing mashup of Big Little Lies office version and 80 s movie Tomlin, Parton, Fonda Nine to Five s dramatic version takes place at now Add some media power and sexual abuse cases We have a great book in our hands Imagine a business world dominated by powerful men who see women as expendable objects, needed to be terminated if they create any small obstacles on their way to climb the highest stairs to the top of the world We don t need to imagine Because this is not a fiction We re living in this world described meticulously and impeccably on this book There is no exaggeration Every word is so true Corporate business life resembles a chaotic jungle and still Darwin s theory of Survival of the fittest stands So the women have to wear boxing gloves and sharpen their knives or nails, pick up their best weapon to fight back and survive to be a leader or take a permanent place at this jungle Which means we need to learn how to be a wild animal Everything started with the whispers at the restrooms on this book Then whispers get louder and turned into the speeches and finally action spoke louder than the words We finally heard the SCREAM However the story is told by four different women who have their own flaws, secrets, families and different ethical approaches to achieve their business goals, they re carrying their ambitions in their sleeves, I really like Rosalita instead of these four women She was objective, insightful one , while she is working as cleaning lady and dusting the windows of Truviv, she also opens different doors and let us see the different perspective of the story Her own story was heart wrenching and emotional, genuine for me.As a matter of fact this book was not about solving the murder mystery and understanding which one of them is guilty It was about learning to listen to those women at first and then learning to believe in them It was about to know your rights, to be brave enough to stand for your own self.The final pages are so emotional, bending your heart, breaking it in million pieces, making you cry so hard The revelations of secrets parts are a little confusing for me I asked myself to many times which secret belongs to who I made some re readings, problem solved But still my mind got hurt It was like solving an equation with hundred variables.Message is clear SPEAK UP FOR YOURSELF DON T WHISPER JUST SHOUT OUT LOUD It s one of the greatest feminism manifest I ve read lately So I mostly enjoy it The Whisper Network by chandler Baker was entertaining but boy did I struggle with this one for the first 200 pages I had seen where many readers have compared this one to Big Little Lies and I have to agree they are quite silimiar and this is probably why I picked this one up in the first place but I didnt find it as witty or as compelling as Big Little Lies.The book does have The me too campaign at the heart of its story as Four women Sloane, Ardie, Grace and Rosalita have worked in the same legal office of a large firm for a number of years, but when the CEO dies suddenly, his replacement to be Ames has a murky past and all the women have a different relationship with Ames and have reasons to put a stop to this man s Advances The book is realistic in its identification what some women encounter and have had to put up with in the workplace and I can see this one being a big book club hit this season as plenty to discuss here The book works on many levels, with a suspenseful and entertaining plot but my problem with the novel was that the characters were indistinguishable from each other for the first half of the story, Sloane, Ardie and Grace just seemed to blend together and I had a hard time keeping track of who was who, I really didn t like or connect with any of them either I very nearly put this one into the DNF pile as it just didn t hold my attention but a friend encouraged me to stick with it as it would pick up in the second half and she was right it did turn out to be quite readable and I liked the ending Not one for my Favourites list but a book that was worth reading even if I did struggle through it. This book deals with the issues facing women in the working world the attempt to have it all, the sexual harassment, the pay gaps It was actually depressing for me As a woman in her 60s who s now retired, all these were issues I faced in my 20s, 30s and 40s I guess I had hoped the younger generations were having an easier time of it Not so There s even a subplot of school age bullying of one woman s 10 year old daughter TWN covers four women, lawyers for an active wear company along with a female cleaner for the company From the beginning, we know someone has died suicide Murder and there are lawsuits going on as there are depositions taking place There s a steady pace to this book, a drumbeat of things about to go terribly wrong Bad decisions are made by all the women Baker uses a variety of techniques including straight narrative, depositions, employee comments, police questioning, newspaper articles and online responses to those articles It s a nice mix that moves the story forward The book tackles all sorts of privilege Male privilege White privilege Pretty privilege I can t say I loved the book The characters irritated me often than not Each chapter ends with a mini cliff hanger that grew tiresome But I appreciated the points it made Parts of the ending were predictable, but there was one part that really surprised me This was a good audio book, easy to listen to and keep tabs on the storyline The narrator does a good job of distinguishing between the characters. Listen Whisper Network is a timely and powerful read about four women working in corporate America who band together to stop the whispers and speak up about sexual harassment and assault in the workplaceThis is part mystery part women s fiction, and part social commentary told through the voices of four women They are done covering for their predator of a boss They hear the whispers that surround him they have been subjects of the gossip Some are his victims, while others have been compliant in covering up his crimes Their jobs, reputations, and marriages are at stake so they pretend nothing ever happened They just try and function day to day without focusing on what was done to them or still being done to them They are vulnerable, real, and raw They aren t always the best people, but when it comes time to stand up for one another, they take charge.They decide to stop whispering and speak up While they were prepared to have to defend themselves in the process of speaking up, what they weren t prepared to face was being accused of murder I have to say I didn t love these characters they are not the most likable, but they grew on me By the end, I felt like I knew them and I was surprised by how emotional I was reading the final pages Whisper Network offers an honest look at how women are treated in the workplace Not only by how they are treated by men, but also how women treat one another This is an important and provocative read about the power of speaking up for those who don t have a voice Our legacy would be our words Shouted out loud For all to hear We were done petitioning to be believed We were finished requesting the benefit of the doubt We weren t asking for permission The floor was oursI won a copy of this book in a GR giveaway Four Women Learn Their Boss A Man Who S Always Been Surrounded By Rumors About How He Treats Women Is Next In Line To Be CEO What Will Happen When They Decide Enough Is Enough Sloane, Ardie, Grace, And Rosalita Are Four Women Who Have Worked At Truviv, Inc For Years The Sudden Death Of Truviv S CEO Means Their Boss, Ames, Will Likely Take Over The Entire Company Ames Is A Complicated Man, A Man They Ve All Known For A Long Time, A Man Who S Always Been Surrounded Bywhispers Whispers That Have Always Been Ignored By Those In Charge But The World Has Changed, And The Women Are Watching Ames S Latest Promotion Differently This Time, They Ve Decided Enough Is Enough Sloane And Her Colleagues Set In Motion A Catastrophic Shift Within Every Floor And Department Of The Truviv Offices All Four Women S Lives As Women, Colleagues, Mothers, Wives, Friends, Even Adversaries Will Change Dramatically As A Result If Only You Had Listened To Us, They Tell Us On Page One, None Of This Would Have Happened
