Publisher's Summary

Bright, ambitious Sophie Landgraf has landed a job as a Wall Street analyst. The small-town girl finally has her ticket to the American elite, but she doesn’t realize the toll it will take — on her boyfriend, on her family, and on her. It isn’t long before Sophie is floundering in this male-dominated world, and things are about to get worse.
With the financial crisis looming, Sophie becomes embroiled in a multibillion-dollar merger that could make or break her career. The problem? Three men at the top of their game, each with very different reasons for advancing the merger. Now Sophie doesn’t know whom to trust — or how far she’ll go to get ahead.
Set inside the high-stakes world of finance, Manhattan’s after-hours clubs, and factories in the Midwest and India, this is the high-powered, heartfelt story of a young woman finding her footing on Wall Street as it crumbles beneath her. Written by an industry veteran, Buying In tackles what it means to be a woman in a man’s world, and how to survive in big business without sacrificing who you are.

Good book, bad Narrating

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator sounds just like my amazon kindle reading to me. Very robotic and same mono-tone to end each sentence. It's as if there's no emotion in the reading. Hard to keep track of which character she's doing a voice over for. It's difficult to focus on the story when my brain keeps wondering, "is this program reading the text of the book or is this an actual person reading"?


Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Dawe’s performances?

Hell no


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed. I really wanted to try audible.com and heard this book is very good, but the narrator sounds so robotic and made it unenjoyable. It honestly made me wonder if Audible.com employees listen to these books and rate them internally before releasing them to the public.


Any additional comments?

I've listened to audio books from other services and they have multiple people doing the voices of other characters. Perhaps audible.com should consider this as well.
