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.

Madly in love with Beth

I loved The Queen’s Gambit totally and obviously I’m recommending it to everyone. The matches are genuinely tense and thrilling to read even without understanding the moves as they’re being described. Beth Harmon is an amazing and memorable character. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her life
