My Book Review of Randomize (Forward collection)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Modernized Ocean’s 11
I’m not a fan of crowds, casinos, or Vegas. Still, I understand the allure and the history of it all. I know what draws people to Sin City and why it is such a huge business. This tale does a great job helping to illustrate both the allure and the sins.

What I liked was the authentic characters. I felt the author did a great job not only creating a plausible plot, but also showing that greed isn’t always monetary. Sometimes, people are drive by other sorts of motivations. I liked that this story was a bit out-of-box when it came to those elements. The psychology made it more enjoyable for me. In addition, I liked how different types of intelligence were highlighted, as in the case with the married couple.

What I disliked was that, in the end, it eventually did come back to money and power. Even though it was an original twist on an old crime, it was still the deserve to be on the top of the hill.

If you love Ocean’s 11, then this is a book for you. It is witty, quick, and twisted. A modern short story to bet on!
