    The 1980s was the most outrageous and turbulent era in the financial market since the crash of ’29, not only on Wall Street but around the world. Michael Lewis, as a trainee at Salomon Brothers in New York and as an investment banker and later financial journalist, was uniquely positioned to chronicle the ambition and folly that fueled the decade. In these trenchant, often hilarious true tales we meet the colorful movers and shakers who commanded the headlines and rewrote the rules.

    This was an excellent overlay between the consequences of what happened (most of which I wasn't really aware of) and the cultures that influenced the directions of things. It was interesting from start to finish.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Patti says: "wildly entertaining"
    "Terrible"
    Overall

    I have a very high tolerance for audio books. I have listened to audio books that I would NEVER EVER actually read because they were still okay to fill the time while commuting. But, this book is nearing intolerable. The smug, pulpy tone is that of someone that drones on and on thinking they are clever and charismatic while really saying nothing and just droning on and on. This may be the only audio book I ever do not finish. I dread hitting play.
