Lucky Numbers by G.G. Carver REVIEW!


Lucky Numbers
Lucy Eaton had a job she loved as a Teaching Assistant at a Special Needs School and a boyfriend who struggled with commitment issues. Life was good, not great, but good, until one day Lady Luck paid Lucy a visit and a life that most people could only dream of opened up to her. With the creases of every day life ironed out, she could sit back and live the dream.

But what if that dream doesn't turn out to be what you thought you wanted? 
Want and need are two very different things. The head wants, but the heart needs, and as generous and fortuitous as life can be, it can also be incredibly cruel. No one gets to live a creaseless life. That is something Lucy will soon discover.

This is the story of Lucy Eaton, she was a woman with very little to tie her to the world, a struggling young person with a job that she loved and a tempestuous relationship with an ex. She found herself inexplicably drawn to a fortune teller that told her some startling, and some-what mystifying, home truths. That night her ex bf comes over for dinner and with the fortune tellers words in mind...her whole world begins to change. How do you review a story that has stroked your soul? How do you find an adequate turn of phrase to express how a story has had you curled into a ball feeling every single emotion that the lead has felt? I very rarely cry, or emotionally relate to a story...but Mr Carver has apparently become created the exception. There's a little boy called Sam, he has autism and his ''side story'' grabbed hold of my heart and refused to let go, Autism is a condition that is very close to my heart for numerous reasons and Carvers portrayal of Sam was spot on! He neither glamorised the condition, nor did he focus on the limitations of the little boy...he saw past it and showed us this amazing child who just happens to have autistic traits, for that alone...he deserves a commendation! The book on the whole was exceptionally well written, while fast paced, at no point did it seem rushed, I have no idea how Mr Carver has managed to fit in so many details and sub plots into one storyline! I defy anyone to read this and have a lull in interest! I found it provocative, intense and as emotionally charged as the second before you step off of the platform on a bungee jump, pure exhilaration. An absolute whirlwind of a read! Thank you so much G! 'Lucky Numbers' has stolen a piece of my heart and fed my soul. 5 entirely well deserved stars and my Book of the Year to date!
