Hedgefund, by Jill Kargman.

Hedgefund, by Jill Kargman. p. cm. eISBN : 978-1-101-02243-6. 1. Rich people-Fiction. When I first met Kiki Silverstein, I wasn’t quite sure about her-she was kind of a loud-mouth, wearing a leopard-print Dolce&Gabbana coat with big gold buttons, huge Rachel Zoe-esque sunglasses not unlike an insect’s compound eyes on top of her head, and five-inch platform tranny-esque black patent leather heels, rattling off a laundry list.

Hedgefund was published in April 2009. Pirates and Princesses was published in September 2011. Kargman wrote the book with her 8-year-old daughter Sadie; illustrations were provided by Christine Davenier.

Hedgefund 33 When two divorced people marry, four get into be. .Jewish Proverb After an afternoon braving midtown during the biggest shopping day of the year, I climbed into bed at 8:00, which. I hadn’t done since The Muppet Show was on air in the eighties. I would pack in the morning for my minitrip to John’s house. I woke up refreshed and renewed, but as I lay in bed, the thought that flashed through my head was not about my upcoming weekend companion in Connecticut, but rather about Elliot

Once and a while, the book seems to remember that Kargman probably wants to say something pithy about how fake and stifling all this high society is. So it puts on the brakes and allows Holly to observe the hollow lives of her former fellow hedge-fund wives compared to Holly's new life of blissful freedom and single motherhood.

Impeccably rendered with wit and style, The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund is an old-fashioned love story and a celebration of New York-in any economy.

A tale inspired by the ultra-wealthy hedgefund society of the Upper East Side finds Holly, a wife of an elite investment company owner, becoming increasingly disenchanted within a sheltered world of snobby women and interfering in-laws; a situation that is further complicated by her husband's infidelity. By the author of Momzillas.

I am almost done with this book, and, while I enjoyed it, one thing kept bothering me. A lot of the references were to events and people in the early to mid 1970's. If the book was written in 2010, and Holly was 34, this would have had her born in 1976. WHY would she continually reference events that occurred in her infanthood or before she was born? Examples: She referenced Nadia Comaneci and Florence Henderson (Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch). Nadia won her medals at the 1976 Olympics and The Brady Bunch ended 2 years prior to Holly's birth!

I was so disappointed in this book. I love Odd Mom Out, so I thought I would also love Kargman's novels, but I don't, at all. She is obviously better at television writing, and I hope Odd Mom Out has a long run, but I will pass on her novels.

If you are looking for a book of substance, this is not your book. The story is fleshed out pretty well, however I do wish there was a little bit more character development. They are a little two-dimensional. Overall, I thought Holly was a likeable character and somewhat relate-able. The part that I didn't think fit was the bachelorette party. It was almost as if the writer was getting tired of the book and wanted to wrap it up and added in a cliche. It just didn't fit with Kiki, I thought. Perfect book for getting lost in for a day or two and then moving on. It's not going to change your life, but a good little escape from it.

At last my book club assigned us something that I could read in a day and relate to. I don't mind a happy ending for a change. Although I don't travel in the same circles, I appreciated a return to New York, a look back at divorce and coping with all the problems it entails, and the shallow friendships we live with each day. I was sorry the book ended ........ I nice summer read even in winter.

I admit it, I love books about the good life, and how things are never as glamorous or Gloria's they look on the outside......but we want to be there anyway

I thought this book would be a light, funny and quick read. I began the book with a positive attitude only to be irritated beyond belief by the time I finished the acknowledgements. The writing is barely competent, not evocative or original at all and certainly not funny. The characters are one-dimensional and uninteresting. I wanted to smack the protagonist from page one and found myself smirking when her husband cheats on her. I thought to myself, "What took you so long?" Had I been married to such an insipid bore, I would have run screaming too. The book continues on its downward trajectory from there with loser Holly continually whining and feeling sorry for herself with absolutely no self awareness. Don't waste your money.
This was a fun and quick read- great while you're on vacation or if you want something light and fun. The quotes at the start of every chapter about marriage are quite funny and give you a chuckle before you start the chapter. It was nice to see the main character (Holly) to be the bigger person and not take her husband for everything he has and really took the higher road. Kiki is so funny and I think everyone in their life has a friend that reminds them of Kiki and would be there for them in a time of need. Def. would recommend this book
