Here are just a couple of noteworthy reviews…
I had just binge-watched the Netflix series. It was absorbing and brilliant. And for some reason, I decided to get the book and read it. I loved the book even more. I don’t play chess. I know the board and the chessmen and how they work from playing a few games when I was a kid. Even so, I was mesmerized by the “dance” on the board. The mental tension and the way it was described. Loved it. Great read.
I was thrilled by the Netflix series and thought the book would be just as good, with a bit more detail. It was better! I found the book even more exciting and more satisfying because the reader learns what Beth is thinking, and how she’s feeling. She matures more fully and is a richer, more complete figure. The serious chess player is able to see the games more completely, but even those without chess experience will get caught up in the excitement.
