Phyllis Hallam | 4 comments Oh my! My husband bought me this book because the description reminded him of Teresa Feo! Well, aside from loving biology and going to Berkeley, I don't think she is a lot like the main character, but that's for another conversation after more people read it!

Kathryn Spoor (kathryninanoka) | 2 comments I've only just started the book, but I find the descriptions of Minnesota very interesting. I just moved here a few months ago, after living in Japan for 10 years. Very interesting.


Debby (debbyfeo) Finished reading "Lab Girl" yesterday. So enjoyed this book - I've got bookmarks all over it! Learned so much!


message 10: by Lila (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lila | 1 comments Getting more and more into this book with each page turned. Some really stellar writing, on top of a brilliant mind and a unique voice! So many great quotes flagged in this book already. Love this one for ex. “A CACTUS DOESN’T LIVE in the desert because it likes the desert; it lives there because the desert hasn’t killed it yet.”
