DINKS Days of Book Giveaways: Day 2 – “The Fund”

by Kristina on December 6, 2011 · 3 comments

The FundI started reading The Fund by HT Narea less than two weeks ago and I am proud to say that two days ago I finished the book.  I carried The 464 page book to work and back home every single day because I couldn’t put this book down for a single second.  I read The Fund during every free minute that I had of every single day over the last couple of weeks.

The Story of The Fund by HT Narea

The Fund is about modern day financial terrorism and how it affects the American financial system as well as the various financial markets around the world. Money is the Weapon in this book and in my opinion money is possibly the most powerful force in the world.  With money comes the power to buy what you want as well as the ability to influence the people who make important decisions.  Money is a common denominator between people of all races, religions, and beliefs.

The Fund by HT Narea follows a young financier named Nebibi from Italy to New York in his journey to avenge his brother’s death and fulfill his brother’s legacy.  However, Nebibi’s once clear path becomes clouded when his personal feelings for a certain US Defence Agent have him questioning his mission and his beliefs. Nebibi seeks dominance for the Islamic faith, but he is no longer positive that his beliefs are worth the cost of losing his long lost love (and US Defence Agent) Kate.

Nebibi accumulates wealth and launches a new Islamic Fund that follows Islamic laws and beliefs. During his mission for Islamic domination Nebibi has created a tangled web which involves several politically powerful countries around the world, a few terrorist groups (who have their own hidden agendas), as well as a biohazard chemical that makes cowardly soldiers fearless warriors.

Kate, the young US Defence Agent, has her heart broken by Nebibi in college and the wounds are reopened when they meet unexpectedly after many years.  Kate has herself asking if it is a coincidence that her former lover seems to be everywhere she goes, or is it fate telling her to give Nebibi another chance at love?

A little bit about Author HT Narea

HT Narea is a former financial guru from JP Morgan Chase in New York who decided to leave the world of finance after 20 years to pursue his passion for writing. He currently teaches International Finance at Georgetown University.

The Fund is HT Narea’s debut novel and (pardon the pun) he blew it out of the water.  He has received praise from other Authors as well as University Professors; and now he is receiving praise from an experienced Financial Professional as well as a Personal Finance Blogger.

Review of The Fund by HT Narea

Although the primary story of this book is financially based on the creation of The Fund and its influence over the worlds markets with Nebibi’s personal agenda, it also has very passionate secondary story lines about lost loves, lifelong friendships, and family bonds.

The Fund is scarily realistic.  It is an intriguing fiction story which could very easily someday become our frightening nonfiction reality.  While I was reading this story I couldn’t put the book down, I absolutely had to know what was going to happen next.  As a young Financial Professional I felt as if I was in The Fund, I felt that I was living this story first hand.  For the last 2 days since I finished reading this book I have been double checking all of my clients financial transactions with extreme due diligence. I have also been questioning the actions of all my clients who have asked to buy or sell specific investments.

This story shows how a little knowledge can become a huge asset with determination and passion. The Fund by HT Narea is a lot of things, but if nothing else it is passionate.  The passion between characters, the passion for personal agendas, and the passion (or should I say greed) for money in this story is overwhelming.

HT Narea explains his stories so well that even if you aren’t a financial geek, a historian, or a believer of the Islamic faith you can easily understand and follow what is happening throughout this book.

If you have not yet read The Fund by HT Narea I suggest that you go out and buy a copy as soon as possible, or maybe you should put it on your Christmas Wish List.

I love the U.S. of A. because of cross-boarder shopping. You can drive a few miles and get some real bargains. You gotta love their accents, too, eh?
