Sometimes you just can't go wrong with a feel good book. I felt that it was time I went for a change after going slightly overboard on darker themes. This was generally what impression I got from the front cover. The idea that an underdog wins the lottery brought an image of joy and happiness and I stupidly didn't think about what sort of people would appear from the worm work. Perry L Crandall is not retarded, he has to have an IQ of 75 to be that and his score is 76. Living with his Gram he leads a content life with a job and a close friend who he knows will look out for him. His life takes him down a different path when Gram dies and his brothers and ...

Pat Wood has not created a character with Perry, she has created a person, someone you would really like to get to know, and, if you cared to listen carefully, could learn something from. The comparisons made between Lottery and Forrest Gump is that the main character is 'slow,' and there the similarity ends. Perry's journey is real, we can all relate to his relationships, and somewhere along life's journey, have met a 'Perry.' This book makes you wonder if you should have stopped and taken more notice.

I read this book after reading a review on another site and I was very gald that I did as it is a touching well written book.

However he then wins £12m on the lottery and suddenly his family are back in his life as are many other ... Read the complete review

Perry L "Lucky" Crandall is not retarded. Both his IQ number (76) and his beloved Gram tell him so, even if some others would choose to disagree. In this book of contrasts the apparently poor Perry is shown actually to be rich (in friends as well as money): And the serene and slow (but not retarded) Perry appears far smarter than his fast but stupid, bickering family. The book might make you laugh out loud and could make you cry too; alternately heartening and frustrating, funny and sad, there are times when you are reading it that you'll want to hug a stranger and times you'll want to kick the cat. This book is peopled with three-dimensional, ... Read the complete review
