BEING SIMON HAINES

MEET SIMON HAINES

FOR A DECADE HE’S BEEN CHASING HIS DREAM partnership at the legendary,family run law firm of Fiennes & Plunkett. The gruelling hours and manic intensity of his job have come close to breaking him, but he has made it through the years and is now within a whisker of his millions in less than two weeks, he will know the outcome of the partnership vote. He decides to spend the wait in Cuba in an attempt to rediscover his youthful enthusiasm and curiosity, and to clear his mind before the arrival of the news that might change his life forever. But alone in Havana he becomes lost in nostalgia and begins to relieve his past.

set against the backdrop of an uncertain world, and charged with emotion. Being Simon Haines is a searching story about contemporary London and aspiration, values and love. Painting a picture of a generation of young professionals, it asks the most universal of questions are we strong enough to know who we are?

MY REVIEW

For a decade Simon Haines had been chasing his dream partnership at the legendary, family run law firm Fiennes & Plunkett. To me Simon Haines seemed like a work acholoic. He had billed over three thousand hours in the previous twelve months. He had spent three consecutive days and nights at his desk. Mr Simon Haines had been brought up not to love money, nor to resent money, nor even to actively disregard money, but instead and most naturally never to ascribe a value to it that went beyond what was commensurate with his needs.

I would like to thank RedDoor for sending me a uncorrected proof copy and inviting me to host the blog tour for Being Simon Haines.
