Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture.

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.

Molly Bloom formed the most elite high-stakes 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 the table.

In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a 20-something petite brunette from Loveland, Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game in existence. 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 exquisite 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 and she lost everything.

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.

Interesting insight in to how situations develop

This review is of the audio book version of this novel. As an audio book it gets 4.5 stars for presentation, good presentation and interesting story. As a book it's a solid 4.

I liked this story in that it was well documented and the writing style is very fluid. The story was well told and engaging.

The outlining of how Molly fell in to being the ring leader of some of the largest poker games in the US is quite compelling in it's simplicity. By that I mean she showed through perseverance and hard work in the face of situations that are less than ideal but have potential for large rewards can work out.

Molly worked at her game and it grew. When she had people trying to take it away from her she fought back, she didn't give up, and she again persevered. It wasn't until the end when it all came crashing in on her that you could see where her inexperience and blindness to certain situations lead to her downfall.

I would recommend this audio book, and novel, as a good listen, or read, on a long flight or drive. The story takes you in to the world of high stakes underground poker games, not amongst pros but people with money, and how someone who gets a shot at leading it can take the right steps to doing so then through inexperience in that world lose it all.

Incredible Story #Audible1

Compared to the film (which I also love) the book really brings Molly alive, not just all poker and her game. If you are looking for a thriller that you know happened, with all that Hollywood glitz and glam and a touch of the poker underworld, this is your book! #Audible1

Great Book

Very interesting true story. Perfect listen for a long car or plane trip. Definitely a well told story about a world the majority of us would never know.

Very gripping story, couldnt stop listening to it!

I loved this book! It was a great story and Molly Bloom did an amazing job of telling it. It really draws the curtain on what happens behind the scenes in the hollywood world and a lot of it is shocking.

Cassandra did a wonderful job narrating and has a wide variety of voices which she puts to good use. The only thing i didn't like is the ending felt a bit rushed and you don't get the closure you were desiring. Despite that I would still say give it a read you will still enjoy it.
