I was amazed by the story. You pull for the students the entire time and are awed by what it takes to "get" this card counting skill. The brain a person has to have, wow, that part of the story really draws you in. There are a couple twists that suck, but are all part of the story. You can't help but want the students to make a mint. And Vegas, yeah, I'm ready to hop a plane now. There is a scene where the main character is still a little apprehensive about doing this whole thing, then he looks out the window of the plane, catches sight of the strip at night all lit up, and the look on his face is classic and so real.

Loved it!
