I was extremely disappointed in this book. I was looking for a historical romance. While the story line held some potential, the writer spent most of her time on explicit descriptions of sex and very little time on the actual plot of the story. I Fast-forwarded thru most of the book to find out what happened, only to be disappointed with a weak ending to the tale. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing the book!!!
Spin, spin, spin... I got so dizzy several times while reading this book that I almost fell out of my chair! But then, that is what passes for reality nowadays and by extension I suppose, what passes for reality economics as well. Even so, there is some good information in the book but its lack of objectivity and completeness is lamentable. Besides getting after those rascal bankers and utopian economists, perhaps the government should require journalists and non-fiction writers to raise their right hand and swear that their creations " tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth" before they can be admitted as evidence in the court of public opinion.
My next listen will be the Guns of August.
Some good information
The story gets lost in the minutiae! This book desperately needs an abridged version.
The performance isn't too bad given the complexity of the story line.
