"A raucous story told by a brilliant mind becomes something both satirical and insightful in Snatch 2&20 by Luke Fellows...the novel sings like a satirical sword cutting through the worlds of finance and the realms of human folly, making Snatch 2&20 a timely caper that is both amusing and insightful from start to finish." -Self-Publishing Review. 4 stars out of 5.
"Complex, witty, dramatic, thought-provoking, and filled with business and social inspection...Snatch 2&20 is engrossing, unexpected, and hard to put down..." -Midwest Book Review
"Snatch 2&20 is just wild enough to support its destructive, incongruously wholesome conclusion...a clever, cynical novel about the absurdities of capitalism and the people who prop it up." 4 Stars out of 5- Foreword Clarion Reviews.

This narrative is a very engaging and entertaining read as told by a hedge fund manager employed by an investment firm. The well-developed character, Giles Goodenough, is stereotypically portrayed as bordering on the edge of being a sleazy personality who is concerned about himself and has honed his craft of investing for his clients that would rival the most productive con-man.
He readily admits he is no saint, but has redeeming features over his cohorts.
His mantra and philosphy of life appears to be get the most out of life by giving the least back.
His story begins from a hospital bed and room where the doctor has proclaimed his being fortunate on being alive. The story getting him to that point in his physical recovery unfolds as the story twists and turns through the corridors of investigating a shadowy company and being imbedded into management, rubbing elbows with the financial elite and coming precariously close to white-collar crime.
Added to the enhancement of the plot is a well-written and witty portrayal of a hero who is clever, sarcastic and real as he ponders his own life and observes the lifes of others. The novel pulls back the financial veil of what may or may not happen inside the offices and boardrooms of those pledging to care for investors and investments.
Snatch 2&20 by Luke E. Fellows is a quality read and will most probably engage the reader's imagination and amusement as it follows a character who still has some semblance of a conscience in a business world. A business world that is after the financial resources of others.
Additionally, the narrative is replete with suggestive advances towards others, politically incorrect expressions and blatant sexual harassment as the author provides a full-throated reveal of what may take place in the world of high finance and capitalism.
The writing is witty and poignant if you must. It is so smart that even when I don't know the first thing about trading, the explanation on the process was pretty clear to me, insomuch that it allowed to successfully follow up with the story. I am betting that, even when you might not be interested in topics of tech, trading, and billions, you will find this book a delightful read.
It is such a cliche, but the only reason I’m giving this book 5 stars is because I can’t give it 6. I agreeded to review this book as a request. When I read the synopsis, I was not thrilled. I don’t know, or care, anything about wall street and stock traders. I couldn’t imagine that there was any way to portray the adventures of such a person in a way that I could stay conscious for more than a few chapters. Snatch 2&20 absolutely shattered that expectation.
Holy Smoke! This is a fantastic story that embodies the same irreverence as the original MASH. I don't know anything about high finance and the stock market, so I was fearful that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with what was happening. I still don’t understand “Trading,” but Fellows manages to explain just enough to make me think I understand what is happening in the book. Basically it all seems to be a magic act. (Illusion.) The comical and irreverent way the author takes us on this journey makes it a lot of fun.
I don’t care what your usual genre is, do yourself a favor and read this book.
If you have seen the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” or followed some overnight success stories coming out of the Silicon Valley, you will surely like this book. Mr. Fellow does not embellish his parodied memoir; he tells the story as it is. There are jokes that expose the high level of delusion on the Wall Street and Silicon Valley. The hot pursuit of wealth is real but neurotic. At times, the author describes the experiences of hotly running after cash as delirious and sometimes life-threatening.
I think readers will be grateful for reading about the financial world that is so cryptic and cult-like. Author Fellow simplifies every hanky-panky action on the Wall Street and opens layman eyes to the mystery of corrupt capitalism.
It’s an inside look at capitalism and investment at its very finest and un-finest. What actually happens behind the doors beyond what we see on tv and read in the news? Luke Fellows offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what could very well happen, with a hilarious protagonist who offers his witticisms and observations as he progresses through the novel. Overall, a read you’ll want to divulge right away!
