  "Worth the read" by book-junkie (see profile) 05/05/17

I actually listened to this as an audiobook. It was read by the author. I found it to be beautifully written and insightful. It certainly taught me things about plants and science. I'm glad I listened to it.

Beautiful descriptions of trees and plants. You see her passion and wonder in studying plants. The taste of academic life shows the drudgery and uncertainty of researching.

  "Wonderful read of the stories of Jahren's work & life" by zodejodie4 (see profile) 07/14/18

When the blurb on your cover compares you to Oliver Sacks, those are rather lofty heights to reach. At least in my world they are. I always enjoy a good, scholarly read. Anything that makes my brain work & takes me out of the day to day madness in my life is a good thing. Hope Jahren does an admirable job with Lab Girl. It's a wonderful read. Eloquent use of words woven into the narrative build into stories about Hope's work & her life. Time with this book is time well spent. My favorite part may well be the epilogue where Jahren implores us to plant trees. It's a beautiful, poignant, timely & hopeful message for the world in which we live today.

This is the book for the curious minded lover of Science matched equally with humanities. Wonderful.
