By Joe, Warren, Jack
The Wolf Of Wall Street
- I empathize with Tereasa Belfort the most because she is cheated on even though she was nice and always helped Jordon and gave him good advice.

This book is about Jordan Belforts adventures through his rich and lavish lifestyle laundering money and running Stratton Oakmont.

This read also perfectly highlights the illegal and wild activity of Jordan Belfort in a way that is not harsh or cringe-worthy.

Analysis: likes
Throughout the novel, I really enjoyed the parts when Jordan went from the poverty life a began to really earn money.
This truly shows where pure determination can get you. He went from a life of poverty which he couldn’t even pay his low rent bill to a life of luxury of earning $430,000+ per month.

Analysis: Dislikes
There was one point in the novel that I did not like. This was when Naomi wanted a divorce and went psycho on her, the kids, and poor judgement. Jordan hit his wife, Naomi, whenever she tried to stop him from going mad and crazy.

A second time in the novel that I did not like was when Jordan tried taking his daughter away in his car while on cocaine. He immediately crashed and hurt her head and also his own noggin. This was a dangerous and harsh decision that ended in bad results.

Analysis: Dislikes
Analysis: Text to World
Through this wonderful read, I made a text-to-world connection. This is because in the book, a man makes himself rich behind his dreams and people in the real world also go to illegal limits in order to hit it big.
