    Description

    What do you do when you realise you have everything you think you've ever wanted but still feel completely empty? What do you do when it all starts to fall apart? The second volume of Moby's extraordinary life story is a journey into the dark heart of fame and the demons that lurk just beneath the bling and bluster of the celebrity lifestyle. 

    In summer 1999, Moby released the album that defined the millennium, PLAY. Like generation-defining albums before it, PLAY was ubiquitous and catapulted Moby to superstardom. Suddenly he was hanging out with David Bowie and Lou Reed, Christina Ricci and Madonna, taking ecstasy for breakfast (most days), drinking litres of vodka (every day) and sleeping with super models (infrequently). It was a diet that couldn't last. And then it fell apart. 

    The second volume of Moby's memoir is a classic about the banality of fame. It is shocking, riotously entertaining, extreme and unforgiving. It is unedifying, but you can never tear your ears away.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

    Not as good as Porcelain

    A bit disappointed after listening to Porcelain, which I thought was much more powerful and had a more interesting story.

    The Real Story

    Of COURSE no aspiring artist can ever fully believe it, Moby has laid it out: poetically, starkly, with heart, humor and pathos. It’s true in EVERY endeavor: success does NOT make a person happy. I theorize that, of one is unhappy before fame and success, ‘making it’ can be DISASTROUS. Up to that point, one always claims, ‘if I only had (fame, fortune, sex) I’d be happy.’ When one arrives at the top and finds that NONE of this has done the trick, panic sets in.

    I don’t know how I know this since I’ve spent fifty years in the aspiring phase, but I can’t thank you enough, Mobes, for telling it like it really is.

    Maybe the best review comes from my wife. She wasn’t interested (different age, musical tastes, whatever), but she was in my car and heard a bit of it, she couldn’t get enough: ‘it’s HYPNOTIC!’

    A truly sincere thanks from the author of Cry A Little Longer and Let’s Talk About Girls (just in case your tastes run to sixties garage rock). I read BOTH Fell and Porcelain. I enjoyed both tremendously and learned much.

    Not a dull moment, makes one think about life

    What an engaging narration; intense and entertaining. Inspiring story of what life throws at you and what to make of it.

    WOW, great work.

    I hope this man finds peace and happiness and someday can understand that he is and always was worthwhile. He has made amazing contribution to this world.

    love it!

    I do not love Moby's music, but I like him. Both books are very good. Well read, well written, and a wonderful look inside a persons life.

    Another great book by Moby

    More dark and twisted stories from the New York underbelly of a by-gone era with a sentimental bent. When this book came out it was fodder for TMZ obsessed virtue signalers, but it has a lot of merit beyond their cynical chattering. These stories of debauchery and sadness and losing are great introspective on the flashy American high class lifestyle. Moby's pairing of timeline swaps illustrate a yin/yang effect, the equivalence of poverty of wealth and poverty of spirituality. The book is well written, Moby's subtle narration is great from beginning to end. I couldn't ask for more.

    Fantastic

    Probably my favorite audiobook I’ve listed to this year. An amazing tale of artistic genius, fame, addiction,poverty, wealth and power. I think anyone who has struggled with addiction could relate, but few have had the ability to go to such excesses. I wish him the best in his future endeavors and truly hope he can find what he needs in this life.

    Dark, dark, dark

    Every book has it's moment, the specific circumstances under which it should be read. This one is the perfect accompaniment for a journey through self loathing. Narrower in appeal than Porcelain-- it is exactly right for someone who seeking to explore dark energy. Hence, my rating: it's a 4.5 if you're in that season of your life and 1.5 if you're not.
    Cheers.

    at least I know it...

    I listened to this book because I like Moby's music and wanted a better insight into the mental health issues he has struggled with.

    The parts about his childhood were difficult. He had a tough childhood, no doubt.

    Most of his adult stories were just sad, and not always in a pitying way.

    When he was young, he did drugs, drank gallons of liquor, chased tail non-stop because, he says, he was unable to have real relationships because they caused him anxiety, but somehow living in drug addled oblivion was going to make himself feel better.

    Later, when he was famous, he did drugs, drank gallons of liquor, chased tail non-stop because, he says, that is what rock stars were supposed to do.

    It was difficult for me to accept the "poor me" side of the story because the narcissistic side just looms so large. The key story was when he admitted he burst into a room he thought was being withheld from him saying, "don't you don't who I am?". Followed by a narrative "oh my did I really say that? let me tell you about a washed up rock star I heard say that one time. but i'm not washed up."

    His constant name dropping (yes, we know that David Bowie was your neighbor) grew tiresome. Yes, we know you are famous.

    The narrative seems to want to be ironically or (tongue in cheek?) unironically self aware. "I am a drug addled narcissistic vegan but at least I know it."

    Sad...

    Reading the first one made this one better. Sad story, but well written.

    Moby gave a good read.

    Dark, depressing yet captivating

    Like watching a train wreck, you just can't keep from staring in disbelief. Although, if your going to live the rock star life, Moby set the bar!

    Masterpiece about a masterpiece

    This book so well written and has a very vibrant touch to it. I am excited about the third book.

    Great book

    In the space of 2 weeks I've listened to both of Moby's books. They're both great. In this book he offers fascinating insight into the struggles related to his insecurities and fame.
    Now I have Moby withdrawal symptoms. I hope there's a 3rd book available in the future.
