Stock market multimillionaire at 26, federal convict at 36, he partied like a rock star, lived like a king, and barely survived his rise and fall as an American entrepreneurial icon. By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting.

What made the experience of listening to The Wolf of Wall Street the most enjoyable?

It was a great way to start my drive to work, the narrator was superb and really knew how to bring the story alive. It was loud very loud at points which really woke me from my morning dreamland. And then on the way home it was just a great way to relax as I drove across the M62

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jordan was my fav charachter, as well I suppose the book is all about him and his life, so it's him that you understand and relate to the most throughout.

What does Eric Meyers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I think it's the way he reads the dialogue, It just makes the whole experience much more real, much meatier..

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

Yes I laughed a few times throughout the book, A few gasps of I can't believe that came out too.

Any additional comments?

I've not watched the film of this book, so can not comment on that, but I personally seriously feel the read of this book is needed.
