It shows how society has evolved over the years and the different way females and males are treated!

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. On par with Beth Harmon of The Queen's Gambit, Elizabeth Zott swept me away with her intellect, honesty, and unapologetic selfhood. 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. Kirkus Reviews said that "a more adorable plea for rationalism and gender equality would be hard to find. In a place she had determined to forget forever, both anticipated encounters and unanticipated revelations show her, and us, that sometimes life is neither fate nor chance: perhaps it’s nothing more than a little luck.

Strikingly relevant…Darkly funny and poignant… Lessons in Chemistry’s excellent experiment [is] quirky and heartwarming. So I was especially grateful to find myself in the world of Elizabeth Zott and Lessons in Chemistry, a cheerful, cinematic, whip-smart novel about finding one’s family and the ongoing fight for gender equality.

Like I said, I liked it, it was an easy read, took about 3 hours total to read, but it's not realistic. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. 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.

They later encounter each other at a theater, and Calvin, experiencing an allergic reaction to a partygoer's perfume, vomits on Zott.Her encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture extends across film, TV shows, literature and even video games. The book was inspired by Garmus's experience as a creative director in an advertising agency, in particular after a frustrating meeting in which a male co-worker took credit for one of her ideas. My friend recommended this book to me and I understand why, I cannot put it down, a really great read.

Brie Larson, the eventual winner, contacted the author by video asking for permission to make a bid. But also, inspiration for how things could be if we garnered the excellence of all instead of cosseting just a few based on societal algorithms. I am grateful for books always, but especially lately, these last—well, couple of years now, when all I want is to be elsewhere, doing something interesting in the company of people who make me happy.

I believe feminism is not just equality but having the freedom of choice, so making out other women aren't great for wanting those things sort of felt against that notion for me.

Her approach catches the attention of overlooked housewives who find inspiration to challenge the status quo and create change one molecule at a time. Pippa Bailey writing for the New Statesman criticizes the book, writing that the book was written "craftlessly" with the plot being "predictable".
