the coffee trader – duper be duped

Posted on July 19, 2006. Filed under: Books |

I borrowed the audio book of The Coffee Trader by David Liss and was expecting to not like it, but I really enjoyed the story. You are carried back to the Exchange and 1659 — even without knowing much about the era I felt like I was there. I even learned more about the stock market — haha. It’s got all of the classic elements of a good story — brothers who fall out, a stolen wife, conspiracy, deception and deception of those who think they are ahead of the perceived deceiver — all very well done. I liked too that you aren’t left feeling happy or sad for the main character — a bit of both at the pathetic turn of events.

I’m telling you — David Liss is excellent. Should be a household name. At least that’s what I keep saying. His latest, “The Ethical Assassin” is really very good.
