Double Down is a great book about gambling and the effects it can have on a person's life. When you first start reading the book is kind of slow, but don't make the mistake of giving up on it. Once the Barthelme brothers start their trips to the Grand Casino is when the book gets interesting. After losing their beloved mother the brothers start to gamble alittle because they see the workers of the Grand Casino as friends or people they can relate to. After the passing of their father is when the gambling takes control of their lives. Although their emotions of their father are mixed the passing of him makes them feel as if their family is gone. With their new found wealth from the inheritance they go crazy at the casino. This is a book that I would recommend to anyone looking for a hair raising rush of action. A book so well written it will have you feeling like your sitting with the Barthelme brothers at the Blackjack table doubling down on your bet.Was this review helpful?

'Double Down' is a book you have to learn to like. Somewhat slow in the begining... but turns into a fantastic story about two brothers who get into major trouble. You will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of living a life in the gambling world. It takes you on a journey in a way you would never believe. To think all of the money you are gambling away is the inheritance from your mother and father is scary. Give 'Double Down' a chance and read it today. Feel free to e-mail me and talk about the book with me, I'd be very much enthusiastic about it. Thanks and enjoy!--Tina Milwaukee, WiWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
