Will “The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund” Survive Going From Riches To Rags In New York City?


“The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund” started out as an oddly pleasant summer read.  Following recently divorced Holland (Holly) through New York as she moved on without her horrible millionaire husband was initially amusing.  I liked that Holly had thoughts that appealed to an audience in their late twenties/ early thirties.  My favorite was when she said no matter how old she got she would always think of the characters from the movie, “Sixteen Candles” as being older than her.  Hello!  Yes!  These types of insights made me like her.  But, there wasn’t a lot going on in the story, and having an older character prevented any crazy events so typical in chic lit from happening.  I expected some real changes in Holly’s life, but the only thing that seemed to change was her inability to attend expensive charity dinners.  Overall, the serious topic and not so exciting storyline made the book a litle slow.  Although the book was mildly amusing, but I wasn’t wild about it.
