4.0 out of 5 stars Dark yet alluding, 26 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Bleeding City (Paperback)
This is a dark depressing novel about working in the City (or of a London) in the financial sector which I found pretty difficult to put down because the story intrigued me throughout. Maybe because I myself do not like working and felt a strong affection for the plot? The book left me with a pretty negative profile of city traders highlighting the huge sacrifices they have to make in order to follow their materialistic dreams. The protagonist is portrayed as a stereotype trader who is ambitious and self centred and is willing to pay a price for his success. As someone who has never worked in the city I found the story kindling sympathy for the traders but I am not sure whether this sympathy grew out of my envy for people with high profile jobs? It will be interesting to know the views of traders who read this book though.
