M. Grace Bernardin's Odd Numbers was a wonderful treat! I found myself pulled into this compelling story from the start and even felt like I was living in the Camelot apartment building along with Frank, Allison, and Vicky. Despite their differences, each character found a way into my heart and mind. I honestly fell for each of them, and at times, couldn't decide who I was rooting for more. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The characters were flawed, but loveable, making them ones that readers will identify with and appreciate. I would highly recommend this novel for anyone who aspires to truly judge a person by their character, for anyone who appreciates the nature of enduring love, or for anyone who has ever believed in second chances. Odd Numbers is a heart-warming, intriguing, difficult-to-put-down story! I didn't want it to end! Hats off to Ms. Bernardin!

Odd Numbers contains a truly compelling story to which anyone who has loved or been loved can relate. The interesting structure of the novel along with the brilliant writing style captured my attention from cover to cover. Warning: you'll have a difficult time putting it down!

This book was free and had only five star reviews (4) so I downloaded it. Sorry, but I can't make it past 23% in spite of the good reviews.

Why? Well first of all the characters are not realistic or believable, they are all caricatures: An attractive college-educated young woman who speaks fluent French and always will speak up for the less fortunate. A constantly sleep-deprived doctor who goes to a pool party dressed in hospital clothes with a stethoscope around her neck. A chain-smoking slob and pack rat who disturbs the whole building with music all night long and has some really strange friends, but who suddenly is capable of giving a crash course in wine-tasting! A fat gossip-loving busybody with a ridiculous hairdo who keeps tabs on all the neighbours.

The second issue with this book is that the conversations go on for ever. In the beginning of the story a married couple are bickering, and it goes on and on for pages, which doesn't add anything to the story, that the marriage no longer is a happy one is very soon obvious. A later chapter deals with their very first conversation years earlier, of course a much more pleasant one, but this also goes on for ages - to absolutely no avail. Same for the above mentioned wine-tasting where the whole conversation is related verbatim page after page...

As for the weird characters, well fiction is fiction so they could pass, but I really think that some editor should have demanded a 25% (at least) reduction in the number of pages, preferably by cutting a lot of the dialogues.
