Description

Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort's own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street. In the 1990s, Belfort became one of the most infamous kingpins in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. It's an extraordinary story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent: the tale of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices to making hundreds of millions - until it all came crashing down.

Interesting story of extraordinary life - Too long

What made the experience of listening to The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) the most enjoyable?

The story itself is interesting. I love non-fiction about the lives of extraordinary / unique people living "off the wall" lives that go against the grain of society's normal ho-hum boxed-in existence. Belfort's story fits squarely into what I consider insightful fun. It's educational, entertaining, downright uniquely insane, and TRUE.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

The tales of debauchery and shady business practices on an extreme level.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

Very solid narration but nothing to write home about. I've heard better but I've heard more that are FAR worse. I had no issue with the narration at all. Well done.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Heck, no. It's too long and my only negative comment on the title. There are simply too many details strung out into these unnecessary bouts of information and writing.

Any additional comments?

The book is too long and doesn't even cover the entire Belfort story. You have to get another insanely long audiobook called, "Catching the Wolf of Wall Street" in order to get his full story. The drawn out details of certain events slow the pace of the story to an almost unbearable crawl at times. I would recommend this title and it's next book that goes with it. If you aren't going to listen to "Catching The Wolf of Wall Street," you are cheated out of the entire story that you just spent an INSANE amount of hours listening to. To complete the entire story with the two books, you may find yourself losing interest over time which is not good. I know I did. I haven't finished the last book as I just became burnt out on the length and yammering about the same details for hours on end. You certainly will get your money's worth for how long the title is which is nice. It's a great all-around story that I can highly recommend but it's not going to be a good experience for short attention spans.

Definitely kept my attention

What did you love best about The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

I work in the finance industry and thought this would be an interesting listen. It definitely keeps your attention!

Any additional comments?

This book is very entertaining and seems to be very honestly written....that said, it is VERY vulgar. Lots of language, sex, and filled to the brim with drugs. I knew all of those were going to be a component of the book, but it was a little bit too graphic for me.

Book and story leave a lot to be desired.

The movie was amazing, but the book was only so-so. Listening to the reader do children and women's voices is cringe worthy and hard to bear, evertime.

Fun at first, but wears out quickly.

Jordan Belfort's unapologetically narcissistic and high-strung recount of his debauched life in the junk bond market starts out with a fun energy that kept me sufficiently enthralled. This energy quickly turns caustic, however, as the book hits almost no other note during its 20+ hour run time, and becomes exhausting as his likable scamp act falls away to reveal the monster beneath.

Other reviewers have pointed out Eric Meyers' narration as grating, especially when he performs the voices of women. I blame this on the material as Belfort paints nearly everyone else in his life as a one-dimensional dunce/unlikable fiend, and Meyers is merely bringing this aspect of the work out in his performance.

This may be one of the only times that I recommend finding an abridged version of a work. Trust me, you'll get the gist.

Outrageous and hilarious all at the same time...

What made the experience of listening to The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) the most enjoyable?

This story is so ridicules it can't possibly be made up.

Whats amazing is this all went down in the early 90's before wall street really went nuts.

What other book might you compare The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) to and why?

No one would listen.

Its another outrageous wall street story.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

His big shot persona, his confidences and slight New York accent give a tough of authenticity to the story.

If you could give The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) a new subtitle, what would it be?

Confessions of a high functioning sociopath...

Any additional comments?

Good story, just a bad dude

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is very entertaining to listen to the life of a guy who throws money around left and right. The shenanigans that ensue with hookers, drugs, and stocks is great and keeps you listening.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Bad/angry. I hated that he really never felt sorry for screwing over so many people, and tried to play it like a happily ever after crap.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

I thought Eric's voice was great when he was just being normal, like narrating or Jordon. However, when he try's to do female voices that is another story.

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

Yeah I laughed when Jordon was contemplating having sex with an Ethiopian hooker in Switzerland and said that see looked to clean to have aids.....right?

Disappointing & over-the-top self-aggrandizing

What disappointed you about The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

The story was just over-dramatic, and the protagonist's sarcasm and faux self-deprecation were intolerable. I had to turn it off.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jordan Belfort? Why or why not?

Probably not. It's not my genre.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eric Meyers?

Richard Poe, Holter Graham

What character would you cut from The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition)?

Whoever the main character is, and the girlfriend, and the wall street guys. Oh, wait, that's the entire ensemble.

Any additional comments?

If you're into Grisham-type antics, and over-dramatized stories evocative of a high school boy having his 1st "experience," this is for you.

Unbelievable, but true

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) to be better than the print version?

I did not read the book, only listened to it. But I liked how Eric Meyers really took on the characters and how they would sound in real life.

Echt super!

Diese Geschichte ist faszinierend! Viel besser als der Film! Im Film hat Scorsese versucht zu viele Episoden in den Film zu packen, was zur Überlänge (über 3h) geführt hat und die einzelnen Episoden wurden schlecht beleuchtet. Im Buch wird alles detailliert beschrieben und man wird mitgerissen. Oft habe ich mich dabei ertappt, wie ich gelacht und mitgefiebert habe.
Der Vorleser ist grandios! Durch seine Stimme und die Art und Weise der Vorlesung gibt er der Geschichte zusätzlichen Spin. Besonders die Frauenstimmen sind ihm gut gelungen. Aber auch der französische Akzent einiger Charaktäre ist toll.

Sex, durgs and rock'n roll

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) für besser als das Buch?

I have not read the book, nor seen the film. So this is specifically related to the audiobook.

Wie hat Ihnen Eric Meyers als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

The speaker is fantastic, he really added to the atmosphere. Great tone of voice, rythm, intonation...

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Superior intelligence leading to superior success, certainly. How much is enough and ultimately what matters really. When he finds out what matters most, he loses what he cherishes most....

Eigene Vorstellung besser als der Film

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

Nachdem ich 30sec von dem Film gesehen hatte, beschloss ich, meinen eigenen Vorstellungen freien Lauf zu lassen. Eric Meyers erzählt so gut, dass die 20 Stunden wie im Flug vergangen waren und ich sehnsüchtig auf Verkehrstaus wartete, in denen ich dann noch ein weiteres Kapitel hören konnte.

Welcher Moment von The Wolf of Wall Street (Movie Tie-in Edition) ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Die Mund-zu-Mund Beatmung - beeindruckend und super geschildert

Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

Wenn er selber seinen Hubschrauber fliegt (zu fliegen versucht) ...

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

Leider ist der Film zu voyeuristisch!

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Sehr verständliches Englisch - insgesamt ein Super Buch und eine lehrreiche Geschichte!
