Couldn't put it down. Characters you care about, with some very unsympathetic but interesting none the less. Very strong parallel stories without a hard-to-believe coming together where everyone's in the same room or something. I feel the author did a great job of understanding the souls of people from very different walks of life. Higly recommend.

I couldn't put it down, literally. I got up in the middle of the night because I just had to finish it. Characters were amazingly real, and I found myself rooting for them. I work in the financial sector in NY rather than London, but it's the same, it seems, because he captured it exactly right.

A worthwhile read; a good snapshot of greed and materialism.

I think CAPITAL was lacking in most areas - adventure, mystery, intrigue, drama. The language was crude. Suspense was simply not there. There were too many characters involved for just one book. That said, the characters were, however, very well defined and separated so it was not that hard to recount who was being discussed. The author has talent but needs to add a smooth flow and energy to his writing. Many of us would appreciate 'cleaner' language. It can be accomplished by tactfully alluding to the words and crses without actually using them.
