the best #1 hard to find anything worth listening to after this
the whole thing was great from beginning to end
the whole book was captivating
I loved it! it's a very interesting book, feels more like a movie than a book. Great listen, the only complaint for me was listening to Jon Robert's exaggeration of everything..and i mean everything! If he went to the store he picked up 3 chick's and had his way with em, tossed em out then robbed the store... That is what I mean, that was a trip to the store for the main character, that's just my example of how far fetched some things were. To be clear that wasn't in the book just an example of how alot of the stories were. Even then it's still a great book and an instant favorite of mine.
This book is entertaining but just written of complete fabrications. Every sentence describes how evil John Roberts is down to how he drives a car to how his wife thinks his soul it black. Even his dog is evil! It truly is ridiculous should be a comic book. All the tales are outlandish including the celebrity stars and mafia figures he claims he has met.
This is the memoir of an unintelligent sociopath with and unfathomably screwed up perspective on the world. If you want to subject yourself to hours listening to his narcissism and how everyone else is a 'moron' this is for you. I listened to 8 hours of this before losing the will to live.
If you're looking for a mafia thriller packed with great characters I'd try something else.
This book is a chilling and informative read (listen) that is above all wonderfully entertaining. From the fading NYC mob to the US Vice President that sent arms to terrorists, this book tells it like it is. Beautifully read! I loved it.
