Two months zwr I hauled it back with me to New York from California, and I finally got around to starting it last week. I suspect author Rhinehart is trying to emulate the dice life but it mainly just becomes annoying. Your new life won’t acceptable by society’s standard. I re-read this book as preparation for a talk that I’m giving about chance.
I don’t usually re-read old favourites, but I fully intend to pick up The Dice Man again someday. Rhinehart the credit he’s due. Rhinehart suggests that the idea of the self is a crutch that pigeonholes us and prevents us from experiencing things that we would not experience if we were “being ourselves”. Dec 29, Rachel Louise Atkin rated it liked it Shelves: Eventually, Luke attracts followers, dice-ing becoming a way of addam, a psychiatric theory, and even a religion.
And we haven’t even talked about the structure of the book.
The Dice Man destroys his marriage and distances him from his children. The concept is a simple one. He has to rhihehart again. Refresh and try again. The characters were so unlikable that I couldn’t find a single one that I liked, and to be honest I’m still not sure whether we were supposed to like them or not.
No trivia or quizzes yet. She it turned out was rhinehaart contortionist and juggling extraordinaire. Other characters take a back seat to Luke and his dice.

The storyline doesn’t flow well, forget about characterisation, and I found it difficult to maintain any interest. The people I recommend it to are those with unconventional philosophies about life and society, who indulges in conspiracy theories, the kind of person who’s just not mainstream. It reminds me a little of Catchbut not half as rhinehar.
There’s a legend that the author adopted a bit of The Dice Man’s lifestyle when plotting zsr novel.
Feb 10, Myranda rated it it was amazing. Joanie Danger rated it it was amazing Dec 03, It’s a bold opening that would be hard to forget in any instance, but what’s amazing is that Luke Rhinehart succeeds in creating a story that actually lives up to this moment.

The Dice Man
Which, for the first time in my history as a reader, actually worried me a bit. So, after carefully studying my options, I rhinehar The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart which is a pen name – henceforth when I’m speaking about the author, I’ll refer to him by his real name, George Cockcroft yes, that is a ridiculous surname to avoid confusion.
It’s an amazing concept!
What Luke Reinhart is doing here is foregrounding that. Published July 29th by Lule Books first published January 1st And it’s a one-dimensional, pseudo-revolutionary viewpoint with no regard for other human beings.

Aug 14, Nadia rated it did not like it Shelves: Dec 02, Manny rated it liked it Shelves: In his eyes the dice will liberate mankind And though in itself this is quite an interesting find, The book is just too long and has too much sex for my taste I would have preferred it shorter and a bit more chaste.
I remember hating the book the first time I read it probably about a decade ago. Important pieces of literature, music, and even the religious texts are sampled from and reappropriated to relate to dicelife. Living flows, and the only possible justification of an autobiography is that it happened by chance to be written – like this one.
Is any of this real?
