I LOVED this book!
The cover is so misleading. And I'm so happy that the novel appeared to be so much better than what I expected.
I liked the main heroine a lot. I didn't always agree with her way of thinking but I really admired her. She felt quite real to me. Yes, sometimes she seemed oblivious to some well-known facts, but I can totally envision such a person in real life. I especially loved her persistence in holding her ground and not stepping back in what really mattered to her.
The other two women figures in the story weren't less interesting. Although they are very different and view the world differently, I was happy that each of them found a way to stand up for themselves.
There were snippets written from the dog's perspective. Oh, they were the best! I enjoyed the dog's smartness and wittiness so much. And he was so tender and caring... So sweet!
And of course, I loved Calvin
Best book so far this year. The characters are wonderful, quirky and smart. Absolutely fell in love with Six Thirty!
Elizabeth Zott is remarkable.
Please check trigger warnings. Very violent SA in chapter 3. Had to stop reading. I should have checked TW but I forgot.

Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing. But it's the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute take a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with -- of all things -- her mind. True chemistry results. But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later, Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America's most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Elizabeth's unusual approach to cooking ('combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride') proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn't just teaching women to cook. She's daring them to change the status quo. Meet the unconventional, uncompromising Elizabeth Zott.

Unfortunately, beyond that, it wasn't really my kind of book. The story follows a female chemist who literally encounters every type of sexism she could possibly encounter. Desperate for work, she stars in a cooking show where she becomes iconic. The plot explores her love life, her career, her role as a mother . . .all with scathing wit.
But like say a beach read, the reader does no work. You are spoon fed every lesson you are supposed to garner, told literally every thought. Books like this should just go directly to film or television where the actors bring a three dimensionality to the party.
A witty book, but just not realistic enough for me personally. I wasn't really engaged by the "I am so smart and beautiful with minimal social skills" protagonist. I just don't know anyone like that. And the dog was the most well developed character in the book. ( )
