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

This has a strong start. I liked how the story was told from multiple points of view, it's from a local author, and set in a nearby location. However, I could not relate to any of the characters. Read the author's note, it adds weight. This book was so far from reality that it dashed the hopes I had in the first half. It was a fast read, and I may have liked it more if the introvert character had been handled better. Let's discuss mbti!

So this one caught me by surprise to be honest. I thought I had it alllll figured out but then WHAM plot twist lol. It was a good read & underneath it all looks at the problems women face when it comes to speaking up. Also, I started using Bookly and I love this infographic after I finished reading. It's like a little badge of success 😁

I almost always give Reese Witherspoon‘s picks a chance and this was another good one. It wasn‘t a fun read in any way but a timely one. I thought the author did a good job capturing #MeToo and sexual harassment in all its forms. I listened to the audiobook and that made it challenging to keep up with the passage of time and the number of characters.

What made this book shine is the fleshed out female friendships and how Baker really has her finger on the pulse of the #metoo era. It wouldn't necessarily have been a pick for me without these timely, relatable insights sprinkled throughout. The plot itself was promising, but the buildup to the reveal and the overall rollout of the ending could have been smoother.

HUGE thanks again to @AmyG for mailing me her copy 🤗

While I was busy reading, hubby was relaxing with a boozy milkshake 😁I thought this book had tremendous promise but unfortunately the plot and big reveal was pretty standard & lackluster. Baker definitely gets the complicated nature of female friendships in & out of the corporate world & that was this book‘s saving grace #BorrowNotBuy #MoreMehThanYeah

BookBabe That milkshake looks amazing! 😍😋 3w
marleed I know there was already a lot of characters in this story. But I really wish one would have been an active female lawyer in the 65-70 yr age range. I think that perspective would have added to the story. 3w
Cinfhen It was a French vanilla bean amoretto milkshake 🥛 @BookBabe I think Sloane‘s mentor Elizabeth was meant to be that “older” seasoned female attorney @marleed but that character was never really developed. I agree, a missed opportunity (edited) 3w

I was enjoying this book until the following passage:

Sloane's position required her to be good with people, while Ardie wanted to avoid them at all costs. Ardie wondered if there was something wrong with her. Some actual diagnosis. A personality disorder. Something more concrete than just: natural introvert.

I'm only continuing because I'm at the halfway point. I'm having serious doubts about this author understanding her characters.

This book took some time to get into, and certain aspects of the narrative were predictable, but ultimately I found it well worth the read given its relevance to today‘s society. Believe it or not, my rating was going to be a solid 3.5 stars until I read the author‘s note, which bumps it up to 4 stars. If you normally don‘t care much for author‘s notes, make an exception for this one.

I am... conflicted. Unpopular opinion ahead: While I enjoyed a story that is necessary, & based around the much needed conversation on woman speaking up against harassment, and the enough is enough message in Whisper Network, the repeated brand-name dropping didn‘t feel natural or organic.. more so forced. Enough that I noticed. Enough that it bothered me. I felt like I was reading two different stories-

marleed Oh I read this and didn‘t notice - I must have been too caught up in the story. However, I totally get what you mean. Once I start wondering about the post-editing of a book while I‘m still reading the story I become disengaged and it‘s hard for me to fall back in. 3w

I struggled through the 1st half - I felt the characters were indistinguishable from another. The 2nd half was a whole different ballgame - I couldn‘t put it down! I can relate to the issues they faced in their workplace, even felt angry at times + can see why this book resonates with so many. I loved the mystery behind their CEO‘s death + twists surrounding it.

An extremely timely novel about women speaking up for themselves in a way that helps all women, showcasing female relationships in the same way Big Little Lies does. I had expected this book to be pro-feminism of course, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn't over the top. An easy read, captivating up until the very end.

It's hard to say that I "love" this book. Rather, this book is simply too important not to read. Despite the #metoo movement, women are belittled, ridiculed, and villified for speaking their truth. Baker aptly describes barriers for working women in a modern world. She highlights how women both protect one another and aid in pepetuating the mistreatment due to their silence. There were so many truths in this book and they need to be shared. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

marleed I agree. I think this fictional story is a great way to have the conversation. In the IRL situations we are often conflicted with emotions of who we wanted someone to be or behave. I would to attend an IRL bookclub on this book. 1mo
TheNerdyProfessor @marleed I agree 100%. We are so quick to judge what victims should have done or said and too often th conversation doesn't involve scrutinizing the perpetrators actions. I'm so glad Reese picked this for her July book but I also wanted human discussion! 1mo

Haven‘t had any time to Litsy lately, and don‘t expect I‘ll be on much for the next few days as I‘m in travel mode.

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.

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. 1mo

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? 1mo
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! 1mo
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. 1mo

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. 1mo
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. 1mo
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. 1mo
