It's a good read and I look forward to the sequel.
"Graveyards of the banks' is an intelligent story with a loud message against the foundations of the system we live in. However, somewhere along the story I got lost and couldn't enjoy the book as much as I would have liked.
Let me summary the story. Nina is an anthropologist who is forced to work the night shift in a cold and strange place. She will suffer the consequences of working at night when the rest of the world is sleeping, in a place where human interactions are ruled by the positions each one has in the power rank. While working with heartless people in the Most Succesful Bank in the world she will learn the power a few have over the real world. There are rules to follow, little time to rest or think and a graveyard is part of the setting.
Let's start with the good. The book talks about some important topics, such as the capitalist system and how it forces young people to work at jobs they don't enjoy only to pay bills or have any money. I enjoyed its criticism and believe it's important to hear what Nyla has to say.
Now, the writing was the main reason I couldn't enjoy the book. It sounded like reading a newspaper or a magazine, what I mean is that chapters didn't sound the way I like it. It felt as cold as the offices of the Bank.
I did like the main character. Nyla has a rich interior world, and her inner conversations are quite entertaining.
