Alternating voices between Amy and Nick was interesting in the beginning but grew tiresome quickly. Crude language did not augment the story. I am not prudish, but the language and banter in this book were unnecessary to the story.The story was too long. It should have wrapped up quickly after the climax.
Ms. Flynn had an engaging, unique, and complex premise for the story. It was cluttered by the diary structure, crude language, and inability to come to an end.
They managed to keep the story moving through its twists and alternating voices. I think that reading the book would have been too plodding.
The author must have had some experience with psycopathology. Her characters provided insights that I had not read in other fiction. They seemed to be real.
The insights and advice from successful women were eye-opening. So many of these women shared the same insecurities and experiences early in their careers.
The book is practical. Changes in outlook and behavior can be applied by any woman. I found myself wishing that I had read this book before encountering several work situations years ago before I retired. I would have handled situations a different way if I had read this book. And, I would have stopped wondering if I were the only person feeling the way I felt and experiencing the events I encountered.
Mika, as the investigator with her own workplace issues to address, is most important. She is speaking for so many women.
Yes and no because I didn't want to stop listening, but sometimes I needed a little space between chapters to think about what I had learned.
Knowing Your Value is a great book for any working woman. I will recommend it to my daughter.
