This one was kind of hard to rate. I enjoyed reading The Radium Girls, for the most part, and I found it to be informative. I had a few vague notions about their history, but didn't have much more than that so I did appreciate the detail that went into the background,the subsequent court cases, and the follow-up studies.
I found the amount of personal detail a bit trying and the constant references to different people to be a bit difficult to follow at times. Kate Moore's goal was to tell more of the personal story; it was just a little too personal for me at times. For example, there were so many of the dial girls that I couldn't always remember who was who, exactly, when they hadn't been mentioned for a while and then reappeared in the narrative, and there was one reference to a person that I couldn't for the life of me figure out who he was (and I flipped back to see where he had been mentioned) and only put two and two together when he was brought back later on (Roach).
That said, it's awesome that a book like this is out there, so that the names of the so-called Radium Girls continue to be spoken.
