    Inhaltsangabe

    Engaging and fast-paced, this gripping coming-of-age novel of chess, feminism, and addiction speeds to a conclusion as elegant and satisfying as a mate in four.

    Eight-year-old orphan Beth Harmon is quiet, sullen, and by all appearances unremarkable. That is, until she plays her first game of chess. Her senses grow sharper, her thinking clearer, and for the first time in her life she feels herself fully in control. 

    By the age of 16, she's competing for the US Open championship. But as Beth hones her skills on the professional circuit, the stakes get higher, her isolation grows more frightening, and the thought of escape becomes all the more tempting.

    Drugaddicted Jane Eyre falls in Love with chess

    I listend to this before watching the netflix show.

    It starts very interesting, but couldnt keep it up until the end.

    She wasnt a very likeable character to me. Is this how chessplayers are? I know nothing about chess, a review by a chess junkie would be interesting. I couldnt figure out how realistic or superpowerish her abilities are depicted, i just know that addiction for me works and feels different.

    The reader has a beautiful calm voice...sometimes a bit robotic though and her male voices are a bit silly.

    Engrossing story, excellent performance

    I found the story riveting although I had watched the Netflix series twice. Amy Landon’s performance was the icing on the cake: she has a way with accents.

    Great story, wonderful!

    Wonderful book! I personally did not like the reading voice very much, but she did a good job.
