Smart and socially gifted, Adam and Cynthia Morey are perfect for each other.
With Adam's rising career in the world of private equity, a beautiful home in
Manhattan, gorgeous children, and plenty of money, they are, by any reasonable
standard, successful. But for the Moreys, their future of boundless privilege is not
arriving fast enough. As Cynthia begins to drift, Adam is confronted with a choice
that will test how much he is willing to risk to ensure his family's happiness and
to recapture the sense that the only acceptable life is one of infinite possibility.
The Privileges is an odyssey of a couple touched by fortune, changed by time, and
guided above all else by their epic love for each other.

The ending was abrupt. I kept expecting bad things to happen to the attractive, rich family, but they just kept getting richer and more attractive. All in all, a good read, although without the contrast in a book like The Unusuals.

This is another book about a hedge fund manager. It is about the family of very, very rich Americans, but they are such disgusting people, why try to "humanize" them?

I was really disappointed with this book. I'm not quite sure where the author was trying to take this story, but, the ending was incredibly disappointing. In addition, I wasn't too crazy about the language he used throughout. I found it unnecessary as it didn't add anything to the story. I would not recommend at all.

Dull. Another dull tale of the rich-&-famous. Disappointing because this book got some good reviews. Can't figure out why ....
