The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) | [Jordan Belfort]

The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort's own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street.

Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort's own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street. In the 1990s, Belfort became one of the most infamous kingpins in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. It's an extraordinary story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent: the tale of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices to making hundreds of millions - until it all came crashing down.

    "Enjoyed the book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) the most enjoyable?

    It really kept my interest. I was pretty much glued to the book and hated having to turn my car off and go in to work.


    What three words best describe Eric Meyers’s voice?

    very good, Annoying Shrill


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No I learned from it.


    Any additional comments?

    If your going to read and deliver a woman's voice, use a woman to read that part.

    "Definitely kept my attention"
    What did you love best about The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

    I work in the finance industry and thought this would be an interesting listen. It definitely keeps your attention!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is very entertaining and seems to be very honestly written....that said, it is VERY vulgar. Lots of language, sex, and filled to the brim with drugs. I knew all of those were going to be a component of the book, but it was a little bit too graphic for me.

    Story
    "Good narrator but his women's voices are grating."

    This is worth listening to. It's a good story about corruption on Wall St. The only thing I found difficult is when the narrator does the women's voices, they are all screeching. I've had to turn the volume down on my headphones so it wouldn't pierce my eardrums. He should've either read the female voices in his own voice or work on his lady acting.

    Story
    "Wow!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is by far the most entertaining audio book I've listened to all year. I finished the whole thing in less than a week. I saw the movie first and loved it so was wondering what the book was all about, and the movie is pretty close to the book, but the book adds a lot more and is definitely worth a read if you liked the movie.


    What other book might you compare The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) to and why?

    Ship It Holla Ballas!


    What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

    It got better and better as the book went on.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    There are a lot of gray areas on wall street, and no matter how much money you have it wont bring you long term happiness.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for some Pulitzer prize winner then this probably isn't the book for you, but if you're looking for one of the craziest most entertaining stories I've heard in a long time then you will enjoy this book. Also probably don't listen to this audio book with your kids or grandparents in the car.

    Story
    "Watch "Margin Call" or "Wall Street" instead."
    What would have made The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) better?

    Agree with another reviewer. Chop off Ch 2 - 4 when author went on and on about the pretty blonde 2nd wife. Her character was boring and annoying. Added nothing to the story. I was in NYC in that era and close to the Wall Street scene. The book "Less than Zero" as well as "Bright Lights Big City" were both FAR more realistic, gritty and better in storytelling. Jordan B simply wasn't engaging and didn't make me care about him or his other characters. In "Wall St" there were equally nasty characters but they were "human" and got me to pay attention even if I don't care about them. The 80's was AMAZING and a "blur".
    However, there were real people back then, Jordan's book just feels fake and plastic.

    I couldn't even listen to half way through and I tried to. Returned it.


    What could Jordan Belfort have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shorten the 2nd wife. Flesh out character development. He did a better job with the Brit Aunt (but still with too surface of a treatment). I grew up in London and the know many Brits, French & Swiss. The description of these characters did not feel authentic. The accents were atrocious and plain wrong even the book doesn't even demand a very talented performer to distinguish amongst the German, Swiss, French and English accents and how each nationality speak French.

    Mr. Belfort was trying to describe brainlessness and vacuousness and addiction and
    perhaps perpetual fog with rare glimpses of clarity. This repeat & rinse rhythm was so mundane and boring maybe the pretty face of Leonardo Di Caprio and a better screen play can put some interesting tidbits for the movie audiences to chew on.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom.

    "page turning honesty"

    entertaining and never dull. finished the book in about 2 days. I chose to take the author at his word and it was his candid and brutal honesty that painted such a vivid picture of his world and it was fascinating.
