Waterstones Bookstore - The Queen's GambitIf you just can't get enough of the popular Netflix drama The Queen's Gambit then help is at hand, as you can also buy The Queen's Gambit book from Waterstones online bookstore. Ideal as a gift, or as a precursor to viewing the drama on Netflix, or even as an excellent way just to spend a winter evening reading on the sofa, the book is a great read, and if you enjoy the series then you'll almost certainly enjoy the book. (and yes, it was a book long before it was dramatised on Netflix).
So, if you're not familiar with the story, then here's the brief take. And you really don't need to know anything about chess to enjoy either the drama or the book:
When she is sent to an orphanage at the age of eight, Beth Harmon soon discovers two ways to escape her surroundings, albeit fleetingly: playing chess and taking the little green pills given to her and the other children to keep them subdued. Before long, it becomes apparent that hers is a prodigious talent, and as she progresses to the top of the US chess rankings she is able to forge a new life for herself. But she can never quite overcome her urge to self-destruct. For Beth, there's more at stake than merely winning and losing.
