To Hold the Bridge by Garth Nix

To Hold the BridgeTo Hold the Bridge by Garth Nix
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In revisiting the works of Garth Nix, my appreciation for his talent has grown. This collection of short stories was surprising, impressive, and an overall great experience. Very few of these stories left me without a desire to hear more. The few that built on worlds he created in other books (that I have read) did not disappoint on the expectations built in the original work. The stories built on worlds from books I haven't read yet were the best advertising possible, and the stand alone ideas were largely intriguing. I recommend this to anyone who has enjoyed any of Nix's other works, although I do recommend getting to know a few of his completed books before taking this on, just so you are ready for his style, but either way, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Players are given loads of time to make all choices, and simply hit, stay or double down by clicking on the options on the screen. Bets are all made digitally, so the game moves rapidly with no precise chips concerned. Thanks to this, there are never going to be any missed or erroneous payouts. You can walk away everytime you want and that long journey from the casino is now only a quick walk from your couch to the kitchen.
