I committed a cardinal sin: I watched the movie before I read the book.

In my weak defence I had no idea what any of it was about. I vaguely remember reading about the Tobey Maguire and Leo DiCaprio poker scandal a few years ago, but I don't think I paid much attention to any of it.

So after I watched the movie, I was morbidly curious. And I was not disappointed.

Look, Molly's Game won't be winning any literary awards. It's very obviously written by someone who's not a writer. The whole thing gets wonky at times and if you truly think about it, there's no much plot at all. The book is a straightforward, almost unbelievable memoir of the girl who for years organised underground high stakes poker games in Los Angeles and New York.

To say that I was glued to the pages is putting it mildly. I was completely riveted by the implausibility of it all.
