The synopsis of this book implies that it follows the lives of seven people, but in reality it's many more than that. Although I liked glimpsing into the lives of several people and seeing how they were ultimately interconnected, the number of storylines I had to remember diminished my enjoyment. It was hard to keep some of the periphery characters straight. And when I could feel myself picking up the rhythm of the story, the hedge fund manager would come along and make my eyes glaze over with financial jargon I don't know much about and don't care to know much about. I enjoyed many of the other characters, but this really runined the flow of the story for me.
