but he then inserts them into some very off-kilter, surreal, head shrinking plots. The juxtaposition between the two can be harsh: the stories swing between interesting and off-putting. In the end, this is another book that I admire more than I enjoy.

An easy read, but also a very odd read. but he then inserts them into some very off-kilter, surreal, head shrinking plots.

With a clear-eyed affection for the wandering souls who populate the ten stories in Getting Lucky - as they cling to talismans like a cowboy shirt, a chenille bedspread and a 1953 classic Ford - Matt Cohen causes us to look at them, and the worlds they inhabit, in unexpected ways. In his darkly comic, wholly original manner, he moves and surprises us, makes us laugh, and reveals the many sides of his extraordinary imagination.

Man, this book was sooo good..I don't even know where to start with my review! I ordered this book based on all the five star reviews and I'm glad I did. Every chance I got I read this book. I kept telling myself I'll just read one more chapter and put it down, but I'll tell you right now it's hard to put this book down!

The residents of Macon Street Apartments are:
Peaches..a stripper that is only concerned with how much money a man can give her, and if he doesn't give her the amount she think she deserves then she has no problem taking it out of his wallet when he's not looking.

Romello..a street hustler that has been living with his baby momma for nine years. They have three kids together, but since his baby momma has put on a few pounds he starting to get a little bored, and boredom is not the only thing Romello is dealing with he's also obsessed with Peaches.

Alisha..is married to Craig. She's beautiful, faithful, well taken caren of, but one day her 'perfect life and marriage' seems to start crumbling like a cookie after Peaches starts whispering in her ear telling her you can't trust a man.

LaDonna..is a homely resident of Macon Street, but it's nothing for her to spread rumors or eavesdrop on other residents conversations. She's suppose to be Alisha's best friend, but is she really?

And then there's Lucky...he's the new resident of the complex. He doesn't work, drives a Mercedes Benz, his apartment is laid out and all the ladies want him. After reading this book I see exactly where he gets his name from. LADIES WATCH OUT FOR THIS MAN! lol

I loved this book from the first page to the last! It was good, good, good!

Getting Lucky is page-turning at its finest. I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters' dramatic antics and the added tear-jerking element folded together nicely. However good this book was, a lot didn't add up. Because it was so suspenseful and Lucky's true identity was kept a secret with each chapter leaving readers at the edge of their seats, I would liked to have read a much better wrap-up at the end. While some things were a little predictable, too many stones were left unturned which gave the book a feeling of missing a few chapters. Other than that, awesome story line with a colorful group of characters with personalities that exploded off the pages. A sequel would hopefully address a lot of unanswered questions.

If you answered yes to my question, then you won't go wrong with this book. It starts off interesting and never seems to have a dull moment. The plot revolves around the lives of people living in an apartment complex. There is the happily married couple (Alisha and Craig), the stripper/whore (Peaches), the school teacher (Ladona), and the common-law couple with 3 children (Jewel and Romello). Naturally, like most apartment complexes, the tenants have the tendency to create their own drama. Alisha is ready to start a family while Craig doesn't want to discuss it. Ladona is after Craig while Romello chases Peaches who is determined to make her money by bringing her work clients home for some "private" dances.

As if that is not enough drama, in moves a new tenant, Lucky. A handsome, single man with no job, fancy car, expensive clothing, etc. He is quick to notify everyone that he is a kept man - his "baby" takes good care of him. Although no one has met this girlfriend, Lucky manages to sleep his way through all the women in the apartment complex - even sparking some jealous rages.

The author does an excellent job of character development - the reader gets to know the desires of each character and often understands how each character arrived at their individual decisions. Just when you think you know where the story is heading, the author throws in a couple of curve balls. While the book does not have the typical Hollywood (happily ever after) ending, I truly enjoyed the realistic ending. Although I will admit that I found the identity of the Lucky's girlfriend a little hard to swallow and not very believable. But the other 95% of the book more than made up for this minor deficiency. I would highly recommend this book!
