    A REAL EYE-OPENER

    Although I usually only read non fiction dealing with modern European and American history, Susan G. Bell's well-written novel "When the Getting Was Good" was a pleasant surprise! I read the first five chapters on a Friday night and could not put the book down until I had finished reading it on Saturday. In particular, I was impressed with how skillfully the author depicted the negative aspects of corporate life, especially the issue of sexism at the office.

    Terrific Read!

    I loved every minute of this book. The characters were extremely well developed and the story just grabbed me. It's light hearted at times, poignant in moments with a herione that everyone can relate to!

    A Must Read!

    This is a terrific novel, with interesting and well drawn characters and a plot with numerous twists. Serious topics are presented in a thoroughly engaging and entertaining way. Bell clarifies the intricacies of Wall Street trading, but never "over-instructs" or preaches. A must read for anyone who has present day concerns about Wall Street practices, corporate greed, or sexism in the workplace. Highly recommended.
