women sts & their meaning
SrMaryLea | Aug 23, 2023 |
I wanted to love this book, but... nope. The subject is right up my alley for sure, but the writing is dry and humorless. The author several times reveals her shallow knowledge of topics (confusing dark matter with antimatter, for example). I'm sorry, but if you are going to write about astronomy -- or whatever -- you ought at least to read up to the point where you don't make basic errors like this. Such fundamental errors in areas I happen to be versed in don't bode well for what she says about the areas I'm not familiar with.

The dry humorlessness made the listening tedious, so I sped it up to get through it faster. Two days and, while I appreciate much of what she had to say about silence, modernity, and related topics, I can't say I'd recommend this to anyone. I'm waffling between a two and three, but GR says three means 'liked,' and for me, it was a bit less than good. In GR star parlance, 'It was ok.'

The topic deserved a better, more conscientious treatment.

I love silence, but I'm also of very limited means so I live in an apartment with paper thin walls next to a busy highway AND a railroad. Maitland is from the upper class and can afford to buy a new house every couple of years and go on exotic vacations anywhere she pleases, and sure enjoys telling you about it. Annoying, banal, repetitive, self-indulgent, pseudo-mystical goop.

I'm not going to finish this. The various characters all preach their varied sermons on various aspects of fertility or the lack thereof. If I wanted a collection of essays on the subject, that's what I would be reading.

The religious bits at the end of the chapters are, at best, in very poor taste. I find them offensive.

This one is going in the bin, and not donated to aused book sale.
