Summary:

Now a major motion picture, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, and Michael Cera—the true story of 'Hollywood’s poker princess' who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all.
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 twentysomething 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.

    Very facinating story and gets off to a slow start, but starts to ramp up quickly. It is narrated well and you can visualize the characters the main character is talking about. I enjoyed the history and facts about the crimes and the famous night club. Does start to get a little dry in the middle and you need to push through.

    Loved this book and the movie was a treat too. Was a little for of a "this is what happened" rather than a character development, however what did happen so stranger than fiction and kept me listening avidly. I watched the movie first, then the audio book. The book covers so much more than the movie and names all of the Hollywood rogues. Awesome book 5 STARS! XX Justine
