A feat of Fabulosity!
on 7 August 2010
Having read a few books about the bank collapses that have covered the more serious economic side of the fallout, I decided to take this more frivolous account for a test drive, and was not disappointed! Marcy, the heroine of the story, gives up her own promising career to move to New York with her husband to support his career as a trader. Marcy sticks out like a sore thumb but soon makes friends with a like minded HFW who has her own career. The horrors are all there though - the botoxed, size zero, plucked to perfection gold diggers but the author makes them more then one dimensional, and there are one or two that you even get to like a little more by the end. I enjoyed every minute of it - the shopping, the politics, the backstabbing, the outrageous shows of wealth at a time when everyone else was losing the shirt of their backs. Marcy, however, is someone you get to seriosuly admire, and her true personality and drive finally emerge as the story progresses. I could not put this book down and if you want to be seriously entertained give it a go.
