This review is from: The Wolf of Wall Street (Kindle Edition)
I accept - given that there are quite a few positive reviews - that some people liked this book. Me? I thought it was one of the most poorly written books I've ever read. The story, such as it is, is simple....'I took loads of drugs. Then I took more drugs. I ran a financial firm that engaged in dubious practice. I took even more drugs. I fought with my wife/made up with my wife. I took still more drugs. I paid hookers. I took loads more drugs. Eventually it all caught up with me and I got arrested.' That's about it - once you've been through that sequence for the tenth time in the book, you just keep reading in the hope that something dramatic might occur. Let me save you some time....it doesn't. The dialogue is stiff, unreal, and amateurish. Maybe the movie is better? Indeed I wondered at one stage if the book came after the movie.
