Quotes

Billy McFarland: I think it's really easy to play "Monday morning quarterback" for myself right now, looking back and saying, "I should've done this, should've done that," and I certainly made a lot of mistakes, there's no question about that. But, before we had the worst luck, we had the best luck. It sounds crazy, but so many things had to go right to make it this big of a failure.

Well told, and depressing
16 December 2019 | by gbill-74877See all my reviews

"In the millennial era, scamming is the air we breathe." - Jia Tolentino, writer for the New Yorker

'Fyre Fraud' tells the story of a con man pretty well, and also puts it into the larger context of the current generation and social media. Between the cons, enablers, internet influencers, and the entitled, all of them reeking of incredible selfishness, it made me want to weep for humanity.
