I was very much expecting Boomerang to tie the failures in the global economy back to the activities in the United States in a more meaningful way. The cover has a picture of George Washington with a black eye, and I figured this would be a reasonable assumption. I felt as if the global economic failure was described as a series of separate events rather than an integrated failure that was in many ways causted by our interconnectedness and our globalized economy.
Michael Lewis should have connected the dots rather than painting a scattergram of financial chaos.
The narrator was fine.
I would probably not have included the information about Iceland. They seemed somewhat irrelevant to the overall story.
