Terrible book. Save your money. I regret spending a dime on this book. By far the most profane piece of trash, I unfortunately have purchased in my 58 years. I purchased this because I think Mr. Dillian is a talented investment strategist, but his talent ends there. To be honest, I only got thru 20 percent of the book, and I am ashamed to admit I didn't stop earlier.
There is nothing of value or entertainment to be gained thru reading such garbage. Jul 16, Mrs. Danvers rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. This is a fun, fast read. Definitely worth the price of admission although I wondered whether your average man-on-the-street would get the trading jargon.

This kind of takes me back to the good ole days. The story is as exhilarating and terrifying as the apocalyptic trade at its center, the characters swirling around it both gonzo and deeply human. Dillian is no wolf of Wall Street, he's its whirlwind. This is not my world. I can't even balance my checkbook - hell, I still have a checkbook - so the real feat is that Dillian was able to submerge me in a world that I had no familiarity with and yet completely captivate me.
All of the vertigo he induced was earned through his characters spinning out of control and his masterful, concentric structure. Be as fearless as Dillian and give this a read! Jul 25, Barbara White rated it it was amazing. Wow, what a ride! This is disturbing and brilliant, says someone who knows nothing about the financial world and can barely balance a checkbook. Dillian takes a single event--one trade--and tells it from the perspective of seven unique voices. The structure of the book is so tight you keep flipping pages eager to see how the pieces fit together--how the interactions of one small group of people, who don't even like each other and live in two time zones, can have such an impact.
Apr 05, Vitalijus Sostak rated it it was amazing. I am a fan of Street Freak gave it 5 stars and thus had an impression that this book is going to be about the Palm Inc. It is not. Great characters, spot-on portraits of diverse folks working on and around markets. Loved it, especially the chapters about hedge fund manager and head options trader at investment bank.

Sep 03, Frederick Frankel rated it it was amazing. This is a novel about the world of finance, specifically options traders. And we can also say without hesitation that God will ultimately defeat evil and end our suffering. Just because God has not eliminated evil and suffering in the world yet does not mean He is not going to do so in the future.
For God to do that He would have to put an end to the cause of suffering: rebellion against God or, as the Bible calls it, sin. For God to end all rebellion against Himself means He would have to end history with a final judgment of the righteous and the unrighteous. The moment that final judgment occurs, all opportunity for repentance and salvation will be gone. The apostle Peter offers this insight about why God has not yet ended suffering, sin, and, therefore, the world as we know it:. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.
It is a reaper that will strike down all humans equally, an endless darkness that is born from humans and massacres them. Ichor leaks from the Grail when it is first being established. Its nature is a curse so strong that it is visible, so it can be called magical energy specialized for destroying people.

It can not be practically used in any way, as it cannot be reshaped or anything of the sort. It stains anybody it touches with a strong curse and melts them as if they were being digested. The pain and fear felt before death remains as magical energy and becomes the next curse to seek out living people.
It will kill anyone it touches unless they can remove it from their body before they are melted away. Those who are not dissolved will be assaulted mentally by "All the World's Evil", eventually going insane or left cursed by its after effects, such as Kiritsugu Emiya , who lives for a number of years while suffering under the curse until it causes his death. If fully submerged in the curse, it paints space itself around the person, surrounding them in darkness and imprinting hell upon their brain by showing them unseeable darkness, ugliness that can't be acknowledged, and all the crimes of the people in the world that make them want to run away from it all.
Those trapped with the darkness will eat themselves to death from pain and hatred, and they will be swallowed by it like the painted space. Avoiding such a curse and the very concept of blocking it are nearly impossible. Escaping should be impossible, so Kirei Kotomine is shocked that Shirou manages to do just that through only willpower. Servant affected by the mud can be blackened. He combined the fragments with his Crest worms, which he put inside Sakura's body. This is the anti-planetary Noble Phantasm Kiara gains after her reincarnation. Angra Mainyu is the most self-serving heinous Noble Phantasm of them all where Kiara uses the world to masturbate.
Kiara offers her body in a sexual manner to all living things on Earth, including humans, animals, and plants. By completely accepting all people as is she gains the greatest possible mastery over their senses and carnality. While in reality it all happens in an instant, but it feels like an eternity of pleasure.
Regardless of how different the structure of a beings intelligence may be, this vortex affects all without exception. It is not a Noble Phantasm that is limited to affect only those on Earth. The damage increases if certain conditions are met. If the target is of the opposite sex, the damage increases. The more intelligent a being is, the more damage it does.

As far as the setting and lore are concerned, the Servant who would be hit with the least damage would be Archer, and Gilgamesh would be damaged the most. People who devote their life to bringing salvation to Sattvas living things are referred to as Bodhisattvas. A Bodhisattva is a god of universe scale and power, and can easily manage things on the scale of the Solar System. Buddhism has a sense of scale of the universe that stands out from that of other religions. The entire universe is the domain of a Buddha. In Buddhism the universe in considered to be made up of three billion solar systems a great trichiliocosm.

A galaxy comprises of solar systems a small trichiliocosm , and small trichiliocosms make up a trichiliocosm. This actually aligns with the real scale of galaxies, galaxy clusters, and super clusters. India had this stuff figured out over years ago? Holy crap!
