"The Gamblers" is, moreover, a timely book about wealth, a subject people never can get enough of, these days: what it can do for you, what it may do to you, and what can't be bought at any price.
Our protagonist, Ben, is not only an accountant, but an obsessive gambler who wins $64M in a lottery, and the fun begins.
If you hear yourself yelling at the book's pages, trying to give Ben good advice, you'll be in the spirit of this story.
Ben's new-found wealth brings new-found friends of the most questionable sort. New friends are difficult to trust, but of course Ben’s riches make everyone suspect.
There's a Russian gambler, charming fellow, and a new girl, Wendy... chance encounters, or stalkers of the suddenly rich?
Ben learns hard lessons about friendship and money in this amusing tale that has more bite than you'd expect.
Well done and blessedly free of vampires, werewolves, and seamy urban underbellies. Five stars for this new take on a venerable story.
It’s amazing how some people who have never spoken a word to you, all of a sudden are in your face, trying to be friends or somehow try to swindle what you have. Mr. Fischer did an excellent job of explaining reality.
Ben meets a woman and you know he has to question if she’s with him for him or for the money. You will definitely be curious in finding out
Nerdy, geekish accountant Ben is a numbers man. So much so, that he even has a system for winning the lottery (don't we all!) but in his case, he actually wins. Overnight, he is a multi-millionaire.
Even with all his millions, it's now a case of 'what shall I do with it all'? and whilst we may look at real-life multi-millionaires and think oh yes, poor you, what a burden (!) author Christoph Fischer drags us kicking (and probably screaming) into a tale where not everything is as it seems, and trusting others comes at a premium - certainly one too high for this reader.
When Ben locks eyes on the beautiful Wendy, he wonders, as he touches down in New York, if he will ever see her again. She's a stewardess when she first meets him, and they promise to email each other and meet again. But Ben is not your typical handsome guy - he's never been lucky in love (try gaming that with a system) and so he is not sure if he will meet her again. Also, he hasn't told her about his new wealthy status, though, as she really is the one for him in his head, he may have to confront that one day.
On landing in the Big Apple, he meets the mysterious Mirco, a Russian for a talent for winning at poker. He explains his system to Ben, who in turn gives him one of his own, before being amazed at Mirco's luck. To his new Russian friend, it's not luck at all. He has a system and he works to it, always knowing when to walk away.Read more ›
