Publisher's Summary

Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world - an insider's story of excess and danger, glamour and greed.
In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twenty something petite brunette from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game Hollywood had ever seen - she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to play.
Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly's game became the game for those in the know - celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exclusive restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world's most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her.
Molly's Game is a behind the scenes look at Molly's game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.

Great book. Zero payoff. *Semi-Spoilers*

I loved this book. Until the end and you feel like listening to it was time supremely wasted. She writes this wonderful story and then out of nowhere her entire life she worked so hard for is taken from her and she never really explains why. Also she loses tens of millions when the government siezes it and she implies that she just moves on with her life as if shit happens. It's over 10 hours of interesting story and then in less than 30 minutes she quickly ends the book with no explanation as to what happened and why it happened. OK then. It was entertaining but had no ending and makes you feel like you wasted all that time. Also makes you wonder how honest her story is without a real ending. If I was totally innocent and someone took everything from me I wouldnt just say oh well let's move on. Maybe that's just me. Whatever. I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars for the first 2/3 of the story and 1 star for the ending. Very disappointing indeed.

Great until it’s Not

Great story. Great details. Great suspense..... And then it wasn’t. The end, more specifically, the last 45 mins, feels rushed. All the details throughout, and we get very few on the conclusion. Other than that, great narration and great listen.

Excellent and Compelling

A really brilliant and compelling story. I flew through the audiobook which was narrated so well it pulled me straight into the guts of the story. Thoroughly recommended listening.

Interesting insight into the high stakes world

Any additional comments?

The book provided an interesting insight into the high stakes world, as told by Molly Bloom through her autobiography. I was drawn in by the recognisable names such as Toby Maguire and Ben Affleck as well as the eye-watering stakes that were in play.

The book fell short in 2 areas for me, which is why I have given it 4 rather than 5 stars. Firstly, the narration could be annoying at times, with the female narrator impersonating Bloom's squealing friends by squealing through the dialogue. Secondly, I would have preferred for there to be more focus on the poker content than on Bloom's personal life - I think it is the poker that draws most people to this book and at times Bloom is vague on detail in this area.

Nothing uplifting about the story

There is nothing uplifting about Molly Bloom’s story. There are no like-able characters. There is no redemption. There are more worthy stories to spend one’s time on.
