"The life of the rich and dysfunctional".
on 31 March 2016
Being full of intrigue from the film, I wanted to read the book just to sort out the true from the theatrical (even if it does mean I'm contributing more pennies to this man's pocket). The book is just as, if not more, crazier than the film. Although I do not condone Jordan Belfort's antics, I just could not put the book down. It's one breath taking adventure from start to finish and as he begins to become more and more unraveled his writing reflects his mental deterioration. Although towards the end, I felt that it lost its thread a little, dotting between incidents that didn't feel like were in chronological order, I would thoroughly recommend this book. Just to get a taste of "the lives of the rich and dysfunctional" as Belfort quite rightly puts it.
