To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I picked this up as I have read all of Andy Weir’s books but I didn’t read any other books from the Forward Collection. I loved The Martian but his books since have been disappointing.
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.
