"An ideal read for suspense lovers interested in the current financial
crisis."
                         ― Booklist
                                   bit.ly/Q6Z9v5
 
"...she easily juxtaposes vivid scenes at a kinky sex club on the outskirts of Greenwich Village with references to the bursting economic bubble and the federal government's bank bailout."
                         ― Publishers Weekly
                                   bit.ly/Q7TUIy
 
"...exposing enough greed, hypocrisy, and blatant illegality to make even the least informed reader deliciously angry."
                         ― Harvard Independent
                                   bit.ly/OOIcng
 
"Morin's wit can be delicious."
                         ― Canberra Times

From the Author

EXCERPT:  "What hypocrisy. Not democracy, democrisy. We all became temps after the rest of the world's liposuction of American debt. Real estate plummeted, banks foreclosed on the floorboards and people moved to Zuccotti Park."

This is supposedly about the Occupy movement as well as a young woman working on Wall Street, but I gave up at Kindle location 2648. I never was clear what was going on. There was something about a past murder, mortgages, a diary, kinky stuff, who knows? The author is Harvard '87, and I'm Harvard reject class of '73 (though I did go there for grad school), so maybe I'm just not bright enough to appreciate this.

Not as good as I expected it to be- hasn't grabbed my interest after 3 chapters.
Four more words required- how silly.

Described as the first "Occupy Novel" the occupy movement only takes up a tiny portion of the book. The protagonist, a young woman named Jerry, moves into the financial world, carrying some secrets, and trying to get away from her mother's murderer. You do get to see the financial world from the inside, as the mortgage debacle hits. There's a bit of kinky sex. But there's all too much angst about relationships and not enough politics.

I found this book hard to read mainly because the plot was so conflicted. In the end I concluded I enjoyed the book and on reflection better understood the difficulty in reading. A must read for those who like to read something different. This one is unique.

Format: Paperback
Trading at a bank in New York during the day and slowly developing a sex addiction at night, the heroine of this suspense novel is intelligent, street-smart and haunted. Her past, her past lovers, her passion for vegan food make her more human, idealistic and vulnerable than she can afford to be in her day job. Her life disravels as she is drawn into a vortex of fraud and deceit.

J.L. Morin tells a haunting tale in a realistic setting. The book is as fast paced as life in New York. It is an intriguing story, well told

The writer is skilled, the story entertaining, the humor dark. Morin deftly weaves each character's storyline around that of her heroine, throwing light on Wall Street's role in the mortgage breakdown with dark humor to spare. Murder, corruption, intrigue, and humor ... complete with twisted relationships, malignant characters, mysterious pasts, kinky sex, and self-flagellating absurdities. Above all, it's good fiction, regardless of to which side of the political fray you tilt.

Not much of a plot, sophomoric writing, terrible introduction of characters. I can't believe this book got any positive reviews at all.

TRADING DREAMS takes us into the heart of New York, and into the dark center of the financial collapse in the company of Jerry, a driven young woman who is looking for love not only in all the wrong places but, quite literally, in all the places! She is also seeking validation, a smart woman in a greed-fueled place created and run by men who refuse to take her seriously. Morin tells us Jerry's story in the woman's voice, and a witty, fierce voice it is. Jerry's tale alternates with short chapters related by one of the men in her office, a stalker in a three-piece suit. Jerry's attempt to succeed in the Stock Market and to find love in the dark city is played out against the slowly developing story of the Wall Street banking collapse and the growing presence of the Occupy Movement.
A side benefit to this smart, slick novel: if you never quite understood how greed engineered the collapse, you will after reading Morin's book.
