John Self, consumer extraordinaire, rolls around New York and London, making deals, spending wildly and doing reckless movie-world business, all the while grabbingeverything he can to sate his massive appetites: alcohol, pornography, a mountain of junk food and more. Ceaselessly inventive and thrillingly savage, this is a tale of life lived without restraint; of money, the terrible things it can do and the disasters it can precipitate.

Review: Money

User Review  - Goodreads

Almost a four because the ending was good. I thought London Fields was better, and Lionel Asbo was funnier. Also, it was a bit long. The best part of Money were the send ups of the ludicrous Hollywood stars. Read full review

Review: Money

User Review  - Goodreads

One of the most painfully repetitive books I've ever read. I realize Amis was trying to make a statement against consumerism but this was just overkill. Read full review
