Where does The Wolf of Wall Street rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is a very engaging story but the narration makes it even more so. However, some of the scenarios are rather lengthy, unnecessarily so in my opinion, and therefore my concentration started to wander in some places.
What other book might you compare The Wolf of Wall Street to, and why?
I would have liked to have been able to compare it with Bonfire of the Vanities but, sadly, this book does not appear to be on audible. I did have the book once but it seems to be missing now, unfortunately.
What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?
Eric Meyer seems to live this tale. So much so, he could have been the author! I shall be looking for other books he has narrated.

I started listening to this a couple of days before seeing the film and after watching the film almost didn't carry on listening as I thought I'd seen the whole story. When in fact the true story is fairly different to the Scorsasee screenplay, it's a lot less glamorous and more a tale of caution - money really doesn't buy you happiness. However there are still the same hilarious moments you get to see in the film and more rip roaring moments which make you cringe as well as laugh out loud.
The narration is fantastic, really well read and although you should by all accounts really despise Jordan Belfort you can't help but love him in a weird way.
I really hope that Audible record Belfort's second book Chasing The Wolf of Wallstreet, and soon- I can't wait to jump right back on the Belfort crazy train!

I enjoyed the account of Belfort's life, the reader does a great job bringing it to life (although some of the voices are a bit much). The story does drag on a bit in parts, but overall very good commute listen.
A great read, and even better performance. the audio presenter really gets into the role and conveys emotion and action of the story.
highly recommend everyone listening to it
