This book was…adequate. Hedy Lamarr’s story is one steeped in romance and intrigue. She was an actress and inventor, probably best known on the internet for her work on a radio guidance system, paving the road toward Bluetooth technology.

Told in first-person perspective, this book follows Hedy as she escapes a dangerous marriage, begins a film career in Hollywood and pitches her invention to the U.S. Navy. Sounds exciting, huh? Unfortunately, this Hedy is written in a bland, okay-ish way that the book never really finds any oomph. This is supposed to be the same young woman who simulated the first-ever non-pornographic female orgasm on screen in the movie “The Ecstasy” but from reading this book, you’d never guess it.
