This story is also about women friendship which we (women) can easily relate to. I find th [...]

    9. This was an interesting story. The author takes the reader inside the dotcom bubble right after the Twin towers collapses. Marriages seem to be coming apart over social media hookups. The money to purchase startups with great product and no capital is non existent and there is a lot of stress in everyone's lives. This is a psychologist's novel. The author is taking the reader inside the character's heads to see where one's thoughts lead to one's actions. Unhappiness and dissatisfaction abound in [...]

    10. It was easy for me to relate to Noga Niv’s Inside The Bubble; this is the story of many of us immigrant families who find themselves part of the crazy rat race called the Silicon Valley experience. Yet it is different as it exposed the reader to the unusual protagonists - the wives and families and what they go through as a result of professional choices imposed by the entrepreneur of the house.

In Inside the Bubble, Noga Niv writes of a circle of friends who left Israel in the last quarter century to come to Silicon Valley, this century’s Golden Country, to seek new lives and new fortunes.

    12. I lived and worked as a programmer in Silicon Valley in the 1980s, and I couldn't have existed in that environment without my friendships with women, most of whom were wives of engineers I worked with.

    13. Noga Niv's book gives us not only the story of a group of Israeli women during the bubble in the Silicon Valley but a glance into their mind. While they are the wives of successful spouses in the Silicon Valley the book showed you another layer of sadness, arrogance and competitions.

She is the one that shows unde [...]

The problem is that I didn't really care for their stories. Although the author did a fine job in telling this story, it is not one that I really got personally involved in. I think if you are Jewish, you will love this story but to me it was a slow read.

This group of women are exposed and vulnerable, each coming to terms with the value she places on life, love, home, friends and family. One of the most realistic looks at marriage and friendship I've read in a long time. Amazing.

    23. ***I received this from a giveaway, completely free, in exchange for an honest review.***This book had to be one of the worst that I have ever read. It's full of run-on, long-winded sentences, much too verbose to be enjoyable. I highly regret spending one long week reading it. I do not recommend.
