Needed a change of pace after all the romance novels I've been reading lately. 😅 So far, I find this one incredibly interesting.

“That kind of silence isn‘t just wrong. It‘s dangerous… It sends a message to victims that it‘s not worth the anguish of coming forward. It sends a message about who we are as a society, what we‘ll overlook, who we‘ll ignore, who matters and who doesn‘t.”

Yes those bookends are a skull cut in half 💀 I'm OBSESSED. Just may need to paint the base black or gray to match.

Also thank you to @Avanders for the gold butterfly photo prints from the #BasicWitchSwap book exchange. 🦋

Adventures-of-a-French-Reader Nice bookends ;) Personally, I would leave the base as is, the wood is so nice... 5mo

Excellent read, but saddening and infuriating that these things were allowed to happen for so long. it focuses primarily on Farrow‘s Weinstein investigation with the ending looking at a few other similar incidents.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

CoverToCoverGirl Very well written. Parts of it made me SO mad. 5mo

A total page-turner. It's not exactly front-list, so everyone probably thinks they already know this full, bonkers, horrifying story, but they do not. I should caveat this by saying that I enjoy reading investigative works where the investigator is themselves a part of the narrative. Some people do not. But if you do, read this one.

Breaking this story held great importance to our culture. To me, I got just as much information from reading the original story and the promotional interviews for this book, than from reading this book.

Everything reported in this book is so infuriating,it's hard to explain,just heart breaking.Farrow &a lot of reporters did an incredible job of bringing these stories out. They were uncomfortable to listen to but had to be told.He made it point to let the readers know how normal such actions were for the elites and how devastating they were for the women. It almost became hard to continue at time, can't even imagine what the women went through!!

My first pick for the #12BooksOf2020 I read this one way back in January, almost a year ago, but I‘m still thinking about it all these months later...and not just the case, but Ronan‘s personal journey with it, his partner, his co-workers, the letters that he was sent, the cover-up, and so much more. It‘s definitely one I will remember from 2020!

Andrew65 Looks good, stacked! 2y
dariazeoli I am so disappointed in myself that I didn‘t get to this for #nonfictionnerds this year! I need to fix that in 2021 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @dariazeoli @Andrew65 just an FYI....The audiobook is excellent too, Farrow reads it himself and does a great job, his emotions come through at points perfectly. 2y

"In the end, the courage of women can't be stamped out. And stories -- the big ones, the true ones -- can be caught by never killed."

Difficult but worthy read. Focus on the cover up(s) that kept men like Weinstein and Lauer in positions of such power, that allowed them to continue unchecked for years. And also on the brave women who repeatedly told their stories, and the people who listened.

TW: rape, sexual assault and harassment, gaslighting

Riveted_Reader_Melissa A great book! 2y
ElizaMarie this does sound a bit hard to read but a good read. I am gonna stack it for later :)

This book makes me so angry. It is full of horrible people doing horrible things, and more horrible people letting it happen and covering it up. But every once in awhile there's a little snippet (usually involving Jonathan) that makes me unexpectedly laugh out loud. It's nice to break the tension.

Suet624 Totally agree. The Jonathan parts really helped. I‘m glad he included them. 2y
TheKidUpstairs @Suet624 It's a tricky line to walk, including those little moments to breathe and chuckle without appearing to be glib with regards to the subject matter. He does it quite well. 2y

"THE COURAGE OF WOMEN CAN'T BE STAMPED OUT"
This book was brilliant, the content was horrifying and heartbreaking but also empowering and courageous. My only complaint is Ronan Farrow doing voices and terrible accents throughout the reading of this really started to grind my gears, but i still rate it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A necessary read!!!
Ronan Farrow recounts how he finally managed to publish his reportage on Harvey Weinstein.
This book reveals how sick our system is when a predator can buy off news outlets and politicians. It's a sickening read, it's a book that angers by its content, but it's an important read.

I will never be able to wrap my head around the shit that goes on in Hollywood! This book follows Ronan as he struggles to publish an important article on sexual assault. It's actually crazy how much silence money can buy. The main focus is Harvey Weinstein but he does touch on other big Hollywood names as well.

I read She Said at the beginning of the year and I'd say these two books pair well. It's time these women get their stories told ❤

Well this was a surprise- on audio read by Ronan Farrow - I am 50% in and it is a great story and very Watergate-like reporting from Farrow who has impressed me. Worthy of all the reporting prizes and just such an engaging and fast paced story- Highly recommend this on audio!

Hooked_on_books I agree! I loved the audio. 2y
Booksnchill @Hooked_on_books i mean so very good! I am amazed at the reporting that went i to this story and glad I didn‘t read it until after Weinstein was found guilty and sentenced! 2y
Hooked_on_books For sure. It would‘ve been agonizing to read before his verdict. Some of the stuff in there is stranger than fiction. It‘s unbelievable what some of these powerful men will do to try to protect their bad deeds. 2y

That moment when your real life collides with the book you started listening to yesterday. I wondered about the title of this book, but I guess I didn‘t really understand it until the term came up during my study session tonight. I skipped over this book when it came out, because I had already read She Said, but it‘s equally fascinating and has additional info. I can‘t decided if I like Farrow‘s accents on the audiobook or not🤔

Wow, an amazing account of the reporting behind especially the Weinstein and Lauer sexual assault and harassment incidents. Complete with spies tailing the reporter‘s boyfriend. To hear the whole story makes my heart ache again for the women who suffered, and makes me so proud of brave journalists, like Farrow and Remnick, who don‘t stop reporting when powerful men threaten them.

Both a thriller and a thorough investigation, this book is a terrifying account of what rich and powerful men can get away with, of a system that rewards their appalling behaviour and mutes indefinitely their victims. Yet for all the exposed Weinsteins and the Lauers of the world, there‘re so many others that continue to ruin lives unchecked. All my respect goes to the brave women that fought hard and to Mr. Farrow for giving them a voice.

My book haul today! Glad to see Target had a special edition of Ask Again, Yes. I really enjoyed the audio! Eager to read Catch and Kill. I‘ve bought a lot of books this month from Barnes & Noble because I miss browsing at my library but I‘ve been buying books I‘ve read that I know I like & nonfiction I don‘t want to wait from the library for and it always takes me longer to read nonfiction, so it‘s nice not to have the pressure of a due date.

This book both fascinated & repelled me in equal measure. I‘d read about & watched some of the reporting on Harvey Weinstein but this story had so much more filth going on. I‘m not naive, I know the justice system is skewed towards the wealthy & powerful, but the lengths these “men” went to to intimidate their accusers AND the reporters helping them is just disgusting. The #MeToo movement was amazing, but don‘t kid yourself. It‘s still happening.

Hooked_on_books I was also appalled at the lengths the men went to try to cover their own asses. It seemed completely unreal. 2y

After another productive day in my garden, I‘m chilling in my pergola, watching the sun go down and reading some more of this eye opening book. The lengths that these rich predators go to trying to keep everyone silent is like something from a Le Carre spy novel. As a survivor of abuse, it‘s making my skin crawl big time. Still, it‘s a Bloody good book!

Book 68. An exposé about the systemic sexual harassment and abuse and covering up of women by men in power in Hollywood, in news and reporting, and in politics. It's an important book, but it's dry, laborious, and confusing (reads like a 400+ page news article, interspersed with confusing chapters detailing the specific spywork done to silence this report). I prefer to spend my time reading fiction.

We all know that the story here is compelling, but I would submit that this is also an intellectually honest effort by a good writer who obviously revised it like hell and who is as hard on himself as on anyone else in the process. While not a camp follower, I found that this was worth my time.

#UnpopularOpinion This is a timely and relevant story but for some reason it left me cold. Harvey Weinstein & all the other sexual predators needed to be named and called to public attention & for that I applaud Ronan Farrow. However this book read like a Page Six gossip report where RF is the heroic reporter. I don‘t think his intentions were ever disingenuous but publishing this book about how hard he worked the story didn‘t impress me. 👇🏽

Cinfhen I much preferred Jodi Kantor & Megan Twohey‘s book She Said. Catch & Kill was my #BookSpin 🎉 Glad to knock it off my TBR 😁

Cinfhen Yessss!!! That‘s exactly what it felt like @TheAromaofBooks he made this a story about himself, almost putting the women‘s ordeal secondary 2y
Kalalalatja I had been nervous about the book being that way. I loved how Twohey and Kantor did their take on the case, and I‘m not really sure Catch and Kill and live up to it. However, I haven‘t been able to find it on audio on any of my subscriptions, so maybe that‘s a good thing (edited) 2y
Cinfhen I‘ve heard his narration is TERRIBLE @Kalalalatja I read it on my Kindle- it was a book deal back in December. If you loved She Said, I don‘t think this book is necessary although that‘s not the general feeling on Litsy 😉 2y
JGadz11 I listened on Audible, and his narration is awful. Him trying to do voices ruined the audio for me.🤦🏻‍♀️With that said, this story needs to be heard, and everyone should read it. Maybe just not on audiobook.🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
