The Futures

We rated this book:


It’s a book for the ones trying to thrive in bustling New York City, and it’s a story for the ones who move to New York full of hope for success. In reputation, New York is tough, the place that makes its citizens fight for their place everyday, especially when we don’t know what we’re after. This is the life that The Futures paints for Evan and Julia, two fresh-out-of-Yale graduates ready to take on the world: Evan at a hedge fund and Julia at a non-profit with family connections. As Julia navigates her post-graduate life trying to figure out where she’s supposed to land, Evan gets absorbed into his own routine and a high-profile project that might be more trouble than it initially seemed.

While the city appears shiny and exciting, what they didn’t bargain for was the high cost of living, close living quarters, the threat of falling out of love, and the economy crash of 2008. Their relationship is put to the test, as is their individual courage. It’s a novel that draws us into the lives of Evan and Julia while also being grounded enough to our actual realities such that it’s relatable.
