Finally, my last book from the back log of books that I read over the past month!
I read this book firstly based on its title. It just intrigued me. Once I figured it out that it was about a silicon valley start-up, I immediately knew which company it was about only because my friend had made a reference to Elizabeth Holmes last year and I had to google her.
So if you haven’t figured it out this book is all about Theranos. How it started all the way up to how it ended. It did not end well and there is still legal stuff going on with this company just a FYI.
This book is written by the NYT journalist who started the story about how terrible Theranos was. This book is very interesting because it goes through different accounts of ex-employees and their stories of what happened behind closed doors.
While I was reading this book I truly was like how in the fuck as they able to do this?? I literally could not wait till I got to the end of the book and found out what ended it for the company.
When I say this book is good, I mean it. It gives you that feeling like “Ha! you deserve everything that is coming to you…assholes.” So you know a very satisfying read.
As a testament of this book, I saw that it was going to be returned to the library soon ( ebook probs) so I was like “I have to finish this book!” And I did, in one day. I took a whole Sunday and just read the book until it was finished. I would say that is a hard task if the book doesn’t peak your interest, at least for me it is. So the book peaked my interest, which can be hard.
I would not call it a “thrilling” book but you do want to make it to the end to see what happened. Like did the authorities catch them or did someone rat them out?
Overall it is a great book, I quite enjoyed it.
Five star rating!
For now I have fallen off reading. I am trying to read more about racism and everything to do with it, but apparently so is everyone else ( There is quite the waitlist at the library for a lot of books by black authors on racism). So I don’t know when I will have another review to write, but I will 100% have blog posts for my more regular content!
