An almost perfect book.
When I started breathing again, I read on, and discovered the many things she enjoyed about the book, and the reason for the qualifier. Edgar. Well, he is a horrible, horrible slime, but I did have my reasons for him. More on him another day.
But when a reviewer gives a 4.75 and says this:
This story is extraordinary, with characters that are immensely complex and pacing that is so fast I felt as if I were riding a wave that kept on building. I admired the author’s ingenuity, audacity and skill in writing a story based on the money markets that evolved into an exciting adventure and love story. The Rare Event absolutely blew me away and changed my perception of the world of hedge funds. What a coup for P.D. Singer – this is her best and most complex work to date as well as a wonderful journey into a world very few of us ever experience.
Hey! I’ll take it!
