review Buying In Laura Hemphill ´ 6 characters Buying In free read Í 6 Attan’s after hours clubs and factories in the Midwest and India this is the high powered heartfelt story of a young woman finding her foot­ing on Wall Street as it crumbles beneath her Written by an industry veteran Buying In tackles what it means to be a woman in a man’s world and how to survive in big business without sacri­ficing who you ar. I received the book for free through Goodreads First ReadsI was hoping Buying In would read like the movie Margin Call as both took place on Wall Street during the 2008 financial crisis Whereas Margin Call was a tense thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat Buying In was difficult to get into and for a good portion not very exciting So much of the jargon and all of the goings on dealing with mergers was a bit confusing for someone like me who is not familiar with the industry or interested in the world of banking and finance The main character Sophie is trying to break into the male dominated field of Wall Street banking She s expected to have no personal life work almost round the clock and always be at her supervisor s beck and call She rarely sees her boyfriend best friend or father and routinely cancels every plan she makes with them because something always comes up at work and work always comes first I found Sophie shallow and annoying and was constantly siding with those closest to her who could never understand why she couldn t even take a few hours off to share Thanksgiving with them Her snooping in everyone s office and through their desks drawers when she was alone at work at night was never explained What was that all about Does she need some mental health counseling Did she forget to take her meds It probably should have been taken out as it didn t make much senseI m giving the book 3 stars as the author certainly knows the field of which she writes Although this book wasn t for me it was fairly well written Hopefully her next book will have a exciting story line

review Buying In Laura Hemphill ´ 6 characters Buying In free read Í 6 Financial crisis looming Sophie be­comes embroiled in a multibillion dollar merger that could make or break her career The problem Three men at the top of their game each with very different reasons for advancing the merger Now Sophie doesn’t know whom to trust or how far she’ll go to get ahead   Set inside the high stakes world of finance Manh. I bought this from an advertisement on my Kindle It s about a first year analyst slogging it out at an investment bank in the months leading up to financial meltdown Having spent some time in the MAinvestment banking world myself the plot appealed to me Though this is told through multiple viewpoints it is mostly Sophie s story the analyst even when we hear the others voices The problem with this book is Sophie is boring and not at all compelling And actually this makes perfect sense for the book Whenever I ve worked 20 hours days in banking and even sometimes now I am likewise not the least bit compelling or interesting bordering on unsympathetic So while Sophie s character is 100% true to her situation that does not necessarily make for gripping fictionAlso if you re going to have a story about the collapse of the MBScredit markets which then made everything else collapse why not have the protagonist closer to it other than oh yeah my employer does some of that Why not have her engineering some of the swaps I m assuming MA is the author s background and it wouldn t make sense for someone in MA to be at all involved in the MBScredit derivative swap world But why not make her so Beyond the tenuous connection that is made toward the end What happened is so incredibly interesting way than a random merger In fact one of the characters very aptly says something along the lines of two companies merge and the world stays the same Very astute observation and one I had not considered previously embarrassingly enough So completely on point but then why write a book about it MBSCDS did change the world I actually thought this was self published until I read the acknowledgments Perhaps though I work in house now I m too close to this world so don t find it the least bit uniue or interesting Maybe this is why I kept thinking I don t care about these characters and I hate every single one of them except VP Vishu also the boyfriend is completely superfluous and unnecessary This book is nothing if not realistic overflowing trash cans at the end of the weekend COB whenever you leave the office even if it s 3 am And maybe I simply had enough of it first hand

review Buying In Laura Hemphill ´ 6 characters Buying In free read Í 6 Bright ambitious Sophie Landgraf has landed a job as a Wall Street analyst The small town girl finally has her ticket to the American elite but she doesn’t real­ize the toll it will take on her boyfriend on her family and on her It isn’t long before Sophie is floundering in this male dominated world and things are about to get worse   With the. Last year I read a dynamite book about a woman working at one of Wall Street s big banks Erin Duffy s Bond Girl I loved it putting it on my Best Of The Year list Recently I had the opportunity to read another debut novel in the same setting by a woman who also worked in the industry like Duffy My return to that world was rewarded with another terrific read Laura Hemphill s Buying InSophie Landgraf grew up in a small town to parents who owned a sheep farm They were hippies and none too happy when their child decided to get a degree in finance and pursue a job with Sterling one of the big New York City banksOne of the first things we see Sophie doing is going through the desk drawers of the people whom she works for trying to understand something about them I liked this uirk of Sophie and it gave us a look at the secret side of these single minded people She goes through her boss Ethan s deskOne peek inside his top drawer had been enough for Sophie Swimming goggles nail clippers a Ferragamo tie wound into a tight coil and packets of Gulden s Spicy Brown Mustard None of that compared to Ira Blumenstein s gold tooth Kenneth Yang s Darth Vader lollipop or Rich Angstrom s Magic 8 BallSophie is a first year hire so she does all of the grunt work research and plugging numbers into Excel formulas then analyzing the data This world is so foreign to me and I was fascinated by my immersion into it thanks to Hemphill s skilled storytellingEthan s team consists of Vasu an Indian man with a wife and two children he loves but rarely sees and Sophie They work in the Industrials division and their big project is convincing their client AlumiCorp that they should merge with another aluminum manufacturer whether or not it is in the best interest of their client This would bring Sterling huge fees along with a gig as a consultant to the newly formed companyIf you had told me that I would find a novel about a big bank and the aluminum industry so intriguing I would have said I don t think so And yet that is exactly what happened As the merger goes through ups and downs at times looking like it was all going to go down in flames the tension builds and Hemphill has the reader on the edge of her seat like a great spy thrillerThe story is told through four different points of view Sophie Vasu Ethan and the CEO of AlumiCorp Sophie s story is prevalent but Vasu s is the one that is heartbreaking and I would have liked to have heard from himThere is one vignette that I also read in Duffy s Bond Girl Two men compete to eat one of each of the items in the vending machine Sophie was a referee for this contest as was Duff s female protagonist so I m going to guess that this is something that goes on at all big banks It epitomizes the testosterone driven mentality that exists Vasu compares Sterling and all of the other banks who caused the subprime economic crisis to the Vending Machine Challenge guy who swallows too much too fast then throws upThe novel takes place just prior to the Lehman collapse and like many of the other banks Sterling is in trouble for their reckless ways affecting all of the major characters We see that for all of their sacrifices having no social life missing holidays with family working insane hours their loyalty and hard work means nothing to a corporationI bought into Buying In I was swept into this crazy world of high finance along with Sophie and taken on a fast paced ride learning about aluminum factories that I thought possible and liking it This is a smart novel and one that will have you turning the pages to see how it all comes crashing down and if Sophie is a survivor
