    Kindle Edition ´ Capital MOBI º capital pdf, Capital PDFEPUBI can't say this ever engaged me much In many ways Lanchester tries to do for London what Tom Wolfe did for New York in The Bonfire of Vanities but less successfully Especially because there's dramatic tension in Wolfe's book his characters are much richer and complex and he's a better prose writer than Lanchester who favours a functional rather prosaic writing style Capital is a long novel with a lot of characters none of whom I found particularly interesting and a couple of whom I found hollow pastiches the banker's wife Arabella especially A grave fault because she was representing the dubious ethics of the higher echelon of London's s

    Kindle Edition ´ Capital MOBI º capital pdf, Capital PDFEPUBJohn Lanchester had me hooked from page one of this 500 page novel My expectation was that he was going to show us how the financial meltdown of 2008 effected the lives of the people on one London street He does that to some extent but what he really delivers is an intimate look at life right before the crash happenedThe people of Pepys Road are mostly upper and upper middle class folks and Lanchester takes us in and out of their houses in smoothly written prose that is just the right mix of intimacy and distance In addition to the homeowners on the street he delves into the lives of the handymen meter maids and nannies on the block as

    Kindle Edition ´ Capital MOBI º capital pdf, Capital PDFEPUBThis book was not as engaging as it could have been I really like that it was about different inhabitants of one street and their individual stories However I don’t think the execution was there Despite this it was intriguing enough to keep me reading until the end

    Kindle Edition ´ Capital MOBI º capital pdf, Capital PDFEPUBBy Peter Thal LarsenBanking is fiction’s hidden profession Despite decades of financial expansion novelists and playwrights have struggled to imagine a contemporary Shylock or Augustus Melmotte the shadowy star of Anthony Trollope’s “The Way We Live Now” A uarter of a century has passed since Tom Wolfe dreamt up Sherman McCoy the bond trader who personified the arrogance and greed of an earlier boom in “The Bonfire of the Vanities” With the crisis wreckage still smouldering the characters in most contemporary novels are likely to be found robbing a bank than working for oneRoger Yount the anti hero of John Lanchester’s “Capital” is therefore a rare breed As head of the currency trading department at a mid sized City of London investment bank in late 2007 he is well placed to anticipate the imminent market storm
