"Sloane, Ardie, Grace, and Rosalita 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. Each of the women has a different relationship with Ames, who has always been surrounded by whispers about how he treats women. Those whispers have been ignored, swept under the rug, hidden away by those in charge. But the world has changed, and the women are watching this promotion differently. This time, when they find out Ames is making an inappropriate move on a colleague, they aren't willing to let it go. This time, they've decided enough is enough. Sloane and her colleagues' decision to take a stand sets in motion a catastrophic shift in the office. Lies will be uncovered. Secrets will be exposed. And not everyone will survive. All of their lives--as women, colleagues, mothers, wives, friends, even adversaries--will change dramatically as a result."--… (més)

Thanks to NetGalley for the audiobook of Whisper Network by Chandler Baker.
First, I don't know why, but the audiobook left out words when listening at 2.5 or 3x speed in the NetGalley app. So, I had to listen at 2x speed which is slow for me.
Now, onto the book. The story, while important, was a miss for me. Whispers around the office of sexual harrassment, yet no one comes forward. Everyone knows what is going on, but fearful for their jobs, they don't speak out.
This book tries to address too many issues: Postpartum depression, cyberbullying, sexual harrassment, rape, revenge, women supporting/not supporting women, work/life balance, wives making more than their husbands, affairs, women not being paid similar to their male counterparts. and more, it was exhausting.
I thought the best part of the book was the author's note at the end when she relates her own experience. ( )

I picked this up because it's the July pick for "Reese's Book Club" and I absolutely see why - it's "Big Little Lies" in the #metoo era. Part murder mystery, part social commentary, part manifesto on what it means to be a woman in the workplace, "The Whisper Network" will go down as a timely, sharp thriller. I expect to see it optioned for television sometime soon (with Reese playing Sloane!). ( )

Reads like post- #MeToo, "Lean In," Chick-Lit Don't get me wrong. The message and details about how women wind up doing twice the work for half the pay is very real and important.

The plot seems more like the framework for a polemic than a narrative arc while the male characters seem to be depicted as either Disney villains or feminist-leaning princes.

Fair narration. ( )

If this were not about lawyers I would have enjoyed it more. Some of it was a bit dry for my taste. ( )
