Publisher's Summary

The story of John Self and his insatiable appetite for money, alcohol, drugs, porn, and more. Ceaselessly inventive and thrillingly savage, it is a tale of life lived without restraint, of money and the disasters it can precipitate.
As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Martin Amis' book, you'll also get an exclusive Jim Atlas interview that begins when the audiobook ends.

What the Critics Say

"Absolutely one of the funniest, smartest, meanest books I know. John Self, the Rabelaisian narrator of the novel, is an advertising man and director of TV commercials who lurches through London and Manhattan, eating, drinking, drugging and smoking too much, buying too much sex, and caring for little else besides getting the big movie deal that will make him lots of money. Hey, it was the '80s. Most importantly, however, Amis in Money musters more sheer entertainment power in any single sentence than most writers are lucky to produce in a career." (Amazon.com review)

Right book - wrong version!

Don't download this version under ANY circumstances. 'Money - A Suicide Note' is a very entertaining book which is performed superbly by Stephen Pacey in the BBC version, also available through Audible. This dreary alternative reading, however, will drive you to write your own suicide note way before you get to the end.

Dark and Funny

This is the first Martin Amis book I have read / listened to and I wasn't disappointed. Money is an adult and darkly funny satire set in the early eighties with a great central character. I cannot agree with a previous reviewer about not downloading this audiobook version - despite it being introduced (not by the narrator) in a deep and overly sincere American voice as: Money, a suicide note, by "Mart'n A'mee"... It could almost have been part of the joke, given what follows in the story.

I very much enjoyed Graeme Malcom's narration. I thought he voiced the main characters well and his general rhythm and dead pan delivery suited the tone of the book and really brought across it's humorous and moving moments.

I am now annoyed that there currently isn't a Graeme Malcom read London Fields or The Information available on Audible.
