Whisper Network
Whisper Network: A Novel | Chandler Baker
“If only you’d listened to us, none of this would have happened.” 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. "If only you had listened to us,” they tell us on page one, “none of this would have happened." “Whisper Network manages to be provocative, timely, and a ripping good read: A murder mystery and a manifesto all rolled up into one. I couldn’t put it down.” —Janelle Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Watch Me Disappear

Mehso-so

This book did not live up to the hype for me. My main complaint with it is the writer's style. Her background in corporate law definitely shows in this book as it takes her about a million words to get to the point. I don't have time for that. What I enjoyed about it is the vindication each won earned at the end of the book. Still, I don't think I will read her next book.

I loved this acerbic and intelligent novel. It‘s probably one of the best representations of the struggles women in the workplace experience. Full review on my blog now!

I received this e-book through Netgalley. My review is my own honest opinion.

I would DNF this if I wasn‘t already half way. I was so excited to read this and it just isn‘t picking up for me. Anyone else having the same problems? Characters are blending together, what is the point?

Cathythoughts I have it in #hibernation 😬🤷🏻‍♀️ I was hoping for a solid thriller ( nope ) I Did not get past the first chapter 😬 (edited) 4d
Hazel0303 @Cathythoughts I‘m really struggling. I work in a male dominated corporate environment and I‘m not connecting. I do think the writing is good in parts (particularly on being a woman in today‘s world), but that‘s about it. It‘s like a watered down Big Little Lies. 4d
marleed I loved it but I did have yo slow down and follow all the characters and their perspectives. I like looking at this discussion from a fictional perspective because I don‘t carry any preceding emotions about those involved. 4d
Hazel0303 @marleed I‘m glad it worked for you. I think part of my problem is the early struggles I had are hard to shake off. 4d

TheNerdyProfessor I've been on the fence about Evvie Drake. Sometimes feel good books are too "feel goody" for me. Did this one make you think or was it pretty easy? 6d
marleed @TheNerdyProfessor I loved this book and the approach of the Evvie not being in love with her husband at the point of his death. What kept me from 5 stars was Evvie believing she didn‘t deserve the life insurance money. You don‘t insure love with a policy but rather the finances tied up in a marriage. The editors should have talked to me before publishing- haha! 6d
Kaila-ann I didn‘t really enjoy The Silent Patient but it might have been a casualty of hype vs reality. I am currently reading The Last Romantics for the lmpbc and it was my choice so I‘m hoping it‘s good lol. 6d
See All 6 Comments
marleed @Kaila-ann Silent Patient got a bump up from me because I didn‘t anticipate the ending. I think Last Romantics is a great book club pick - family sagas are so good for discussion. I want my BC to talk the Whisper Network - that discussion would be fascinating. 6d
jillrhudy I liked Evvie, Last Romantics, and Miss You When I Blink a LOT. Such riches in my reading lately! Hillbilly Elegy I thought was okay, whereas everyone else for 100 miles around loathed it with a passion. (I'm Appalachian). I mean, it's a memoir, not an indictment. He's as entitled to his memoir as anybody. 6d
marleed @jillrhudy Hillbilly Elegy was low on my TBR because I was so convinced of my disdain, but I found it interesting and thought provoking. He‘s travelled and educated - two things that allow for perspective on one‘s upbringing. I finished thinking, yes, I‘m glad his voice was captured in print. 6d

Rating: 5 Huge Stars

All I can say is WOW. As a working woman in the corporate world Whisper Network hit home. Early on when Baker wrote about a team meeting, discussing the untimely death of the CEO of Truviv, I felt so uncomfortable at times, that I knew Baker was going to get this story right.

For my full review please check out my blog: https://obsessedbookaholic.com/2019/07/10/whisper-network/

marleed I thought this was excellent. I love that it‘s fiction because it allows you to consider all the perspectives without a predetermined emotion for a character. If I could change one thing (but really it‘s nearly perfect) I would have loved an additional older female working lawyer perspective - someone who‘d been in the workforce since the ‘70s. 7d
Lauren.Archer @marleed I can totally see that, great call out 7d
marleed A cameo by a Meryl Streep or Gloria Steinem is never a bad thing! 6d
keepingupwiththepenguins I can't wait to read this one - it's sooo timely! ❤ 6d

#jointhewhispernetwork with me and you won‘t be disappointed. Female empowerment is so strong in this cleverly worded novel. The author (who‘s local to me in Austin Tx!) writes an amazing story gripped with intrigue that gets you from the very start. I loves this book and you will too!

Sometimes we can discuss topics via a fictional story better than the emotions behind an actual event, and this book addresses the #MeToo conversation so well. It requires concentration to keep the characters‘ stories and the differing perspectives straight, but this book deserves the time. ... I wish my IRL book clubs considered new releases because I‘m dying to talk about this. Geez, one day and my Top6Reads is already starting to shuffle!

keepingupwiththepenguins I can't wait to read this one - it looks SO. GOOD! 2w

Okay, so maybe I stalk the ReeseWitherspoon Bookclub site on the last day of each month so I can guess her pick before it‘s announced on the first of the month. And maybe I race to my library and recommend a purchase on that last day of the month. But look how my luck turns out!! I‘m so exited! I anticipate in another week there will be about 15 copies but right now I‘m 1 on 1 and you can‘t beat that.

4 women work in the legal department of a large corp. A spreadsheet with names of sleazy men is passed around by email. Their boss‘ name is added to The BAD Men List. The women have to deal with the repercussions.
They cope with today's issues that also affect you and me. Some mini-essays cover success, motherhood, being nosy, judging, periods, guilt, fear of violence, & secrets. Well-written book. My favorite of 2019. Thanks, #NetGalley!
