This book has basically everything money, cards, a Camero, and a kid getting hit by a bus. It is a quick read that continuously grabs your attention. No limit was more realistic then what I was first lead to believe. It gives you an idea of what would happen if you were to have the same problem as Dennis. Dennis Doyle is a very interesting character for the reason that he goes through a drastic change in lifestyle and refuses to admit that he has a problem. In the beginning Dennis seems happy and content but throughout the novel Dennis begins to lose his self into the cards. As said in the novel each hand is a new chance and all Dennis wants is another chance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
