The Club No One Wanted To Join-Madoff Victims In Their Own Words

ย The Club No One Wanted To Join-Madoff Victims In Their Own Wordsย was unlike any other book I have ever read. As you can tell by my reviews I normally go for Christian Romance as my typical genre. It’s always nice to break out of your box, however, so I was interested when Alexandra wrote and asked me if I’d like to review this book.ย  Although I remembered hearing about Madoff and his ponzi scheme at the time it was just another big headline about the newest big guy gone bad. I didn’t know anyone who was effected by his corruption so quickly forgot about it.
This book explained what happened in detail and since it was written by the victims of the scam it was moving and compelling. It really is shocking to me that people who worked their entire lives to save for retirement could lose everything in the blink of an eye. It helped show me how fragile life is and if I learned one thing it is that when you’re saving or investing money you need to make sure to diversify even if you are completely positive the person you’re investing/saving with is wonderful and the best!
I thought it was interesting how in a couple of the stories it was couples who were affected and each wrote their side of what happened. I found comparing the different points of view extremely interesting.
The book isn’t all gloom and doom though. Many of the people say that they came out richer as they realized the wealth of family and friends surrounding them, and that money is not the greatest thing in life.
I would recommend this book because it helps you focus on the fragility of life and that anything you hold onto for security, other than God, could be snatched away from you in a second so you need to treat it as such. I also think it’s good to educate people and to try to help these victims who were so mercilessly preyed upon!
