    Amazing as always!

    The myth states that, once you read Joss Sheldon, you always become a fan of Joss Sheldon. “Money. Power. Love” a story about the most basic cravings of human nature, Love and Power that the money give you, show us three different men, born not only seconds apart, but as well, lot of differences apart. All the legendary three men, which eventually will dominate the world of bankers, are haunting and chasing different things in life, and it is either Love, Money or Power (yes, just as the title say). This historically inspired novel of Joss Sheldon is a must read, at least for the writing style of the author, which I can’t stop saying is absolutely incredible. Joss takes your breath from the first page and drives you on and on through late XVIII century to early XIX. The most impressive part is that you get the feeling of a fly on the wall, and not of a reader of the novel, that’s how realistic it feels. If you want to read something completely new for you, then definitely give a chance to “Money. Power. Love” by Joss Sheldon, you won’t regret it!

    Once again a fantastic work by Joss Sheldon

    If you are a fan of Joss Sheldon's works like I am, then you're definitely waiting for this book to be released! After reading too many economic research papers, Money. Power. Love came as a fresh air and a really good read. As a big fan of historical novels, I couldn't not enjoy the setting of 19th century, with Sheldon telling a story of politics and finance in his writing style, that just makes you get more curious about it and then find out more asap. However, if you think that this is your another politics book, you'll be gravely mistaken. It's a love story, and a very interesting love story at that. At one point it reminded me of one Remarque's Three Friends, but the setting and characters are absolutely different here. Meet our characters - Mayer, Hugo and Archibald. Three men, who were born seconds apart, but who chase different dreams. You will find yourself in all of them, and I believe it was what Sheldon tried to tell with this book, that there is a Mayer, Hugo and Archibald living in all of us. But who will achieve his dreams? Whose path will we choose?

    Good

    This book, set in the late 1700s and early 1800s, is a breathtaking romp through history, packed full with excellent character development and plenty of lessons which are still relevant today. I found the bits on the history of money particularly interesting – I never knew about the things people used to use instead of money! Britain must have been very fraudulent back then. The first two sections were mainly set up – throwing three similar orphans into different worlds, where their adopted parents turned them into very different people. When they are reunited, they fall in love with the same girl, but try to court her in very different ways. Events in this section really moved me, especially those involving Hugo: having to wade through a sewer and dead matter just to survive. The scenes involving Archibald were a little ridiculous. But isn’t love evil? It is in this book! The two characters who fail to get the girl go mad with longing. In an attempt to impress her, one goes wild for power, and the other goes wild for money. They become tyrants! This is where the book really gets going – giving us a social history of how bankers and soldiers took over the world. It all goes back to the three being united, separated, and reunited in an enthralling finale. It’s often unpleasant, uncomfortable even, but love reigns supreme – even in death. This is what make this book one of the greatest love story I have read – reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet. Highly recommended!

    A story as promised

    This story definitely delivered what it promised "will make you laugh, cry, smile, cringe, scream and shout" as stated in the synopsis. Now, to the story. Sheldon is a great storyteller and pens a uniqueness that I have never quite seen before. I read "The little voice " and am more impressed with this story, though I loved that one as well. Character development and the setting brings a new light into a the world of bankers. Yes, bankers, and I was not sure what I was getting into when I read this (as I never read the synopsis until AFTER I read the story I am reviewing) but I'm so glad I read this one. Big fan of Sheldon!

    Great read!

    Money. Power. Love. is not a book you'll want to miss. From the first page, I was roped into the concept of this story and was curious to see where it would take me. The story is really well written, with sophisticated language that still reads smoothly- it's a perfectly balanced writing style for experienced readers and those who pick up a quick read from time to time. The author includes vivid descriptive language, with my absolute favorite being "Zebedee's belly was as soft as a brioche roll..." The language makes everything in this story that much more enjoyable to read. The reader follows the lives of three men as the novel flows through the course of their experiences in love, money, and power, as the title so appropriately states. Through the book, the author makes the connection between the three men glaringly clear. I found myself constantly searching the chapters for the parallels between their lives. I really enjoyed seeing the way in which the boy's lives were affected as they went to three separate homes- victims of circumstance that would determine the paths of their lives, just like in real life. The way their childhoods related to, contributed to, and affected their relationships with money, power, and love became clear as the book progressed. For me, the novel's pace picked up considerably when the three men united for the first time- the author did a truly wonderful job of leading each man down a path that would seemingly intersect with the other two. I appreciated their strong bond of brotherhood- it was heartfelt and a pleasure to read. While I originally thought that the overwhelming theme in this book would be the strong sense of family and brotherhood the men felt for one another, I realized as the story progresses that it dives so much deeper than that. Money, power, and love overtake these men, and become the single most important thing in each of their lives. It shapes the choices they make all through the end of the story in a remarkably fascinating way. More than the men, I loved the storyline that the character of Lola gets in this book. She was a strong character that affected each of the men in profoundly different ways. How the love story ends, you'll have to read to find out! This book is unique, deeply intelligent, and entertaining. This book was definitely out of my box in terms of genre but I still really enjoyed it! That is the hallmark of a truly great read- across genres, ages, and styles it is considered great and this novel definitely is! I will for sure be recommending this to family and friends.
