Loved Andy Weir's book The Martian and was really eager to read this one. Didn't know it was only a short story so it was a decption to me. Very interesting story based on real science so entertaining and instructive all at once. Thumbs up to Mr Weir and will read the other shorts stories of the Forward collection.

This book is short and really heavy on the detail. There is a lot of geeky science talk about quantum computing and pseudorandom number generation and entangled qbits and how that would affect the massive Las Vegas gambling industry. But essentially, this is a basic heist story and the characters were unappealing and hard to care about.
I think this possibly might have done better as a full sized book with more time dedicated to the plot and characters but this condensed version just didn’t work for me.
I really liked the twists and turns in the narrative of the story, which added unpredictability to it when it seemed as though I knew exactly where it was going.
It was a good way to end the Forward Collection of books, which I overall really enjoyed and would highly recommend.
So far my least favourite of the short stories.
It was very meh.
