  • The movie is a classic Scorsese and one of my top tens If you want the real names, events and actual Vegas casino where it all really happened, read this book.

  • This is an excellent novel and movie, starring my 2 favourite Bob de Niro because, as y all must know, no one can beat Al Pacino based on a true story Ace is the right guy, street smart, with the good finger for bets and rotten finger for women When he falls in love for Ginger, a VIP prostitute sickly in love for both her pimp and heroin, things start to fall apart as the stakes get too high with an innocent child involved, namely their daughter.

  • Its prolly heresy but I think I prefer Casino to Goodfellas , of the 2 Scorsese Pileggi film efforts This book is the actual long form journalism that Casino the movie was based on The names are different and Frank Rosenthal Ace Rothstein is not quite the mensch with a pscho wife the movie mad him out be, but it is a good investigation into how integral the mob was to operating casinos in the US up until the early 80s.

  • Extremely badly written It is factual though and informative, but it lacked utterly any poetic of imaginative touch It was just like a huge brain dump of the accounts of the organized crime prevalent in the years when it happened It also discussed about the rigging of Las Vegas casino games Bored me to death, just finished it so that I could use my bookmark on a different book.

  • I didn t like how this book was written, I thought it was light on actual story and too heavy on dialogue for my taste I felt like I was listening to a middle schooler tell a story from class and I said don t tell him about the skimming and he said Lefty doesn t tolerate that kind of behaviord I saidblah blah blah Throw in some terrible voice acting and it was not my favorite.

  • I LOVED this book I was expecting it to be very close to the movie sort of like Wiseguy was to Goodfellas But it was a lot different I love these true gangster stories and could read watch them all day long It was interesting to see what was actually different from the way it was portrayed in the film What lives these people led I highly recommend.

  • I actually listened to the audiobook and loved it The voice actor reading for Frank Lefty Rosenthal was phenomenal If you have the chance grab the audiobook I really recommend it.

  • i loved this book though a little different i loved the movie too lots of facts about mafia and vegas casinos when they first opened a very good read.

  • Casino written by Nicholas Pileggi and directed by Martin ScorseseA different version of this note and thoughts on other books are available at youtube playlist list and realini Casino is a very popular film.Nevertheless, popularity and critical success are two different things.Critics did not like this movie as much as the rest of the already consecrated chef d oeuvres and multiple award winners directed by Martin Scorsese Goodfellas, Raging Bull and Taxi DriverBut the story is very good, if fa [...]
