Alli’s #CBR4 Review #23: The Odds by Stewart O’Nan
While browsing the library my eye was drawn to a book with a beautiful yet somber picture of Niagara falls and a rainbow on it. Since I rather enjoyed “Last Night at the Lobster”, as soon as I saw that it was by the same author, Stewart O’Nan, I snatched it up immediately. I am very glad that I did, and I will be seeking out more of his works in the future.
“The Odds” tells us that we are meeting a couple, Art and Marion on the last weekend of their marriage. Crippled by debt, they have come up with a plan to divorce, he will file for bankruptcy to save them both from the mess that they are in. As far as Art is concerned it will be only on paper, Marion is not so sure. Adding to their marital strain, both have histories of infidelity, although only his is known to them both.
