The ending was abrupt. I kept expecting bad things to happen to the attractive, rich family, but they just kept getting richer and more attractive. All in all, a good read, although without the contrast in a book like The Unusuals.

This is another book about a hedge fund manager. It is about the family of very, very rich Americans, but they are such disgusting people, why try to "humanize" them?

I was really disappointed with this book. I'm not quite sure where the author was trying to take this story, but, the ending was incredibly disappointing. In addition, I wasn't too crazy about the language he used throughout. I found it unnecessary as it didn't add anything to the story. I would not recommend at all.

Dull. Another dull tale of the rich-&-famous. Disappointing because this book got some good reviews. Can't figure out why ....
