Book Review: The Wolf of Wall Street

It's been a while since I did a book review, and that's because I was actually reading, just at a slightly slower pace than normal.

My book club book was The Wolf of Wall Street--one of the girls in the group's husband loved the book, so we jumped on the bandwagon since the movie is coming out in December.

I started reading the book and had a hard time getting into it because I kept thinking "this would never happen. This isn't real" until I was talking to MG about it and he mentioned that the person WAS real and it really DID happen. And then I realize I had probably been living under a rock since I didn't know that. 
Then I REALLY got into the book because I was fascinated about how all of this totally OUTLANDISH stuff actually happened.

Here is part of the Amazon synopsis:
"By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids waiting at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called . . .

The book is really well written--and it's amazing how much you can connect with a character that is such a down low dirty, sneaky dude, who is filthy rich. But, you do.

It's one of those books that you have to read it to believe it. And then look up a ton of stuff on Google to REALLY believe it.

It was a longer one, but kept me engaged the whole time, and wanting to know what happened next and how everything turned out.
