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.

    "Insiders tale"

    Molly holds little back, and she names names (in most cases). Entertaining story of an unusual life told first-hand. Recommended.

    "Great story, fun and easy listen"

    Great book. Listened to it during downtime (while knitting) on a family vacation. The reader does an excellent job. Her voice is calm and believable, and sounds as though Molly is relaying her own story.
    As for Molly's life, it's fascinating and bizarre, real and unreal. The book kept me interested and wanting more. Seemed as though it ended quickly. I would listen to a sequel/update book.

    "Molly's Game"

    Fascinating. Excellent read. I'll be reading this one again, for sure. It is packed with so much info that young women everywhere can learn from both Molly's successes and failures. What an inspiration she is. I wish I had read this book when I was in my 20s. (Now 64).

    Story
    "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.

    "Just OK"

    Not all that great. More of a soap opera. Lacks details and seems repetitive. Just wasn't that entertaining.

    Story
    "Very entertaining"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure if they want a good, entertaining book.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    There were many.


    What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She made me feel as though Molly was telling me her story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when she goes home to her mother.


    Any additional comments?

    This isn't an enlightening book, or monumental by any means. It's just an interesting, entertaining book.

    Story
    "Poker Princess survived and excelled"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Molly's Game to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read print, listened to audio the day it came out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Molly of course. Molly's high emotional intelligence enabled her to navigate in the world of the wealthy, powerful, and often spoiled individuals that she had to work with. A credit goes to both of her parents for her emotional and psychological development in their own distinct ways. A mentor like Reardon though is hard to find, although his acting out was at times over the top..


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she told Toby McGuire she was not going to get up on the table and bark like a seal for a $1000 poker chip.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A glimpse into the lifestyles of the rich and bored.


    Any additional comments?

    Our true selves are not rooted in money is obvious by reading this book.

    "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.

    "great book"

    i knew nothing about this book and bought it anyway as it was recommended by audible. i like to play poker and like reading players biographies and this book turned out to be excellent. finding out about high stakes private games and the authors story of making it to the top of hosting games was great. highly recommend.

    "Great Story"

    Very enjoyable. If only half of it is true then she has had a wondeful lfe.
    Some of the Hollywood characters do not come out of it in a favourable light.
    Interesting to know who they are. I googled her name after listening to the book to find out what happened to her.
