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.… (mere)

I made it about half-way through this bloated book before I stopped reading out of boredom. I enjoyed the first hundred or so pages; I had the understanding that the narrator, Jordan Belfort, is a completely unredeemable human being and I was having a glimpse into such a mind. I do not tend to read books from a villan’s perspective so I was engaged—for a while. The problem is that the writing is good for only a few passages, and the rest is repetitive drivel. His internal monologues are way too long and he has the narcissistic and immature tendency to give everyone in his life pet names. Don’t get me started on his abhorrent racism, misogyny, homophobia, etc. It just gets too much to stomach after awhile. There is a bit in the beginning where Jordan explains he came from a middle-class family where racial prejudices were considered the worst offense and that even in the height of his insanity, he held disdain for prejudices. I find this hilarious, considering he uses slurs to describe every single character in the book, who is not a white man, every. single. time. There is also the unfortunate understand that Jordan did not get his just desserts. Sure he lost his brokerage firm and lost millions, but just a quick Wikipedia search shows that he wormed his way, and continues to worm, out of all serious consequences. The way he describes women, especially his wife, is truly despicable knowing that, in a few years after the events of the book, his wife would divorce Jordan for domestic abuse. And just like a true narcissist, he bargains, he justifies, he blames others, and he wallows in self-pity for all of his terrible behavior, just as he does continuously in his book. And this is what made me lose interest—our capitalist and patriarchal world had (and will continue to) cushion and glorify men like Jordan. If the book was shorter, if the author got his comeuppance, or if it were a work of fiction, maybe then I would enjoy this story of narcissism, opulence, and corruption. ( )

Exemplar of the rare case where the movie is far better. I can only read so many tales of a guy getting high on Quaaludes and having sex with prostitutes before I get bored. I suppose that's because I find this guy completely un-relatable ( )

El horror. El libro narra presuntamente la vida de una "estrella fugaz" de las finanzas americanas de los 90. Jordan Belfort entró en el mundo de las finanzas, fundó su propia empresa de intermediación financiera, se montó en el dólar, se hizo drogadicto, se gastó un montón (un-mon-ton) de pasta en estupideces, se divorció, fue a la cárcel por manipulación de precios financieros y "volvió a nacer" siendo un hombre responsable. La historia podría tener interés (de hecho dicen que se está haciendo una peli con Di Caprio sobre ella), pero el libro es el horror. Inconexo, disjunto, prestando la misma atención (o menos) a la definición de un bono basura que al valor de una cortina de una casa en los Hamptons.

El autor no escribe bien y la historia no es coherente; eso hace que la lectura sea muy difícil. Básicamente asistimos al diario personal de un alcohólico y cocainómano (aunque no fuera la cocaína la principal droga que usaba) que habla de cuánto se gasta en tonterías, de cómo encalló su yate en Cerdeña, de cómo estrelló su Gulfstream... La historia es interesante, pero la narración la convierte en infumable. Tal vez la peli de Scorsese lo mejore. ( )

From Publishers Weekly Belfort, who founded one of the first and largest chop shop brokerage firms in 1987, was banned from the securities business for life by 1994, and later went to jail for fraud and money-laundering, delivers a memoir that reads like fiction. It covers his decade of success with straightforward accounts of how he worked with managers of obscure companies to acquire large amounts of stock with minimal public disclosure, then pumped up the price and sold it, so he and the insiders made large profits while public investors usually lost. Profits were laundered through purchase of legitimate businesses and cash deposits in Swiss banks. There is only brief mention of Belfort's life before Wall Street or events since 1997. The book's main topic is the vast amount of sex, drugs and risky physical behavior Belfort managed to survive. As might be expected in the autobiography of a veteran con man with movie rights already sold, it's hard to know how much to believe. The story is told mostly in dialogue, with allegedly contemporaneous mental asides by the author, reported verbatim. But it reports only surface events, never revealing what motivates Belfort or any of the other characters. (Oct. 2)
