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.

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.

Exciting, Adventure, Great True Story

Absolutely loved it. Molly is an incredible girl, very smart and switched on. Her drive and passion gave her such an interesting career and it was so brilliant to hear about it in her own words. Great adventure and no dull moments. I think this is going to be a film next year, so excited to see what they do with it.
