Publisher's Summary

John Self is addicted to life. Porn freak and jetsetter, a aficionado of wealth and women, Self is the shameless heir to a fast-food culture where money beats out an insistent invitation to futile self-gratification. Out in New York, mingling with the mighty, making a fortune but spending more, Self is embroiled in the corruption, the brutality, and the obscenity of the money conspiracy.

Critic Reviews

"Terribly, terminally funny; laughter in the dark, if ever I heard it." ( The Guardian)
"This is my first Martin Amis...John Self, the narrator, a mega-rich yob who makes TV commercials, has rotten teeth too, beats up women and plays tennis chess, not tennis, with Martin Amis, He's also very, very funny. I'd better read another." ( The Guardian)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on steroids

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on steroids. Wild, very funny in a non-PC world and ultimately “what the …. happened”

Money. Whoa what a story it tells.

It's okay that the raunch & the smut & the endless primary focus of the main character, John Self, is laser focused on debauchery. The rapid fire cadence and the self-depreciation of Mr. Self entertains as the plot unfolds. The narrator's reading elevates Martin Amis' novel to a place that had read the book I would have never been able to do. There is so much to revel in the plot, the characters. I will return to this mint of story and realise how much I was not able to take in the first go around. Brilliant debauchery described in a manner that is all at once disgusting and evidences the incredible intellect that Martin Amis wields.

probably the best audiobook performance ever

I honestly did not expect the book to be THAT good. It was a real gem! And the performance made it even more amazing. Absolutely brilliant - and absolutely recommended!!!

Truly wonderful

Fiction that is meticulously crafted - sentence by sentence, and Steven Pacey's impeccable reading made this one of the most enjoyable audio books I have ever listened to. I'm going to miss John Self...I think

Money

This is the best performed audiobook I've listened to. Stephen Pacey captures the true essence of the protagonist John Self.
