In the new novel from the author of Last Night at the Lobster, a middle-age couple goes all in for love at a Niagara Falls casino
Stewart O'Nan's thirteenth novel is another wildly original, bittersweet gem like his celebrated Last Night at the Lobster. Valentine's weekend, Art and Marion Fowler flee their Cleveland suburb for Niagara Falls, desperate to recoup their losses. Jobless, with their home approaching foreclosure and their marriage on the brink of collapse, Art and Marion liquidate their savings account and book a bridal suite at the Falls' ritziest casino for a second honeymoon. While they sightsee like tourists during the day, at night they risk it all at the roulette wheel to fix their finances-and save their marriage. A tender yet honest exploration of faith, forgiveness and last chances, The Odds is a reminder that love, like life, is always a gamble.

A snooze fest
Ohmigod this book was so depressingly boring, I hate myself for spending time I will NEVER get back. I could hardly stay awake and must have skipped half of it just to be done so I could sleep in my bed instead of nodding off in the chair. Total waste of $ & time and power of my pad. Save your money.
I didn't enjoy this book as much as 'Emily Alone', but its such a good simple read it's hard not o recommend. This is the third book I've read by O'Nan, and he really is a master at the prosaic.
