It was an interesting story. The reading was horrid. It may have just been a personal thing but by the second chapter I almost didn't want to listen any more except I really wanted to hear the story. His inflections and what not simply got on my nerves. It is like he exagerated to a point of being obnoxious.
this is a good story that is done well.
i believe it was and i did see it. The book is much better then the movie.
Yes, wish I was one of the group.
Just thought it was good. Very interesting on both sides of the play. I could have gone on and on.
Narrator did fine job.
The counting system sounds fascinating.
The lead character, Kevin, sounds like he has every Donald Trump book in existence.
I don't think I would like him.
He really critiques his mentor's bad teeth.
More strategy. I hate hearing about them sucking up to celebrities and cheerleaders.
Learning to count cards and anything with the Mickey character.
Never. . .uhh maybe Kevin Spacey. Kate Bosworth is too dumb to pull off the math whiz character but whatever.
Execution is fine. The lead character is not very likable.
There seems to be a debate going in the reviews for this book, so I'll give you an answer: yes, the narrator does make occasional slurping noises. It's kinda annoying, but you'll be so absorbed in this work that you won't even notice. This is SO much better than the movie, and I loved the movie. Despite the occasional complaints of the narrator, Johnny Heller does a fantastic job reading this, his voice sounds young and yet somewhat mature, it fits perfectly. There were times in the story where I could actually feel my heart start to beat harder in my chest - I've never been this engrossed in an audiobook or podcast before. Fantastic. Just click buy right now, you won't regret it.
Wow what a story. I am not much of a gambler or card player, but it is a great read. Now, if only I could count cards like that, I too could be rich!
