A very simple story, but guaranteed to warm your heart in the next few months or so.

Why hasn't this been made into a movie yet? ( )

Thanks to the person who left this in my Little Free Library. I wish I could thank them since if it wasn't for them I would have never discovered this gem of a book.

Perry L. (Lucky) Crandall may be "slow" but he's a lot smarter than a lot of people in this book and in life. His gram taught him since he was always ridiculed at school for being "retarded." However, he never believed that and he was always slow because his IQ was higher than being "retarded." He had his friends Gary & Keith at the boat store he worked at for over 16 years and they looked out for him just as much as his gram did before she died. I wish she was there when he won the lottery. He knew Cherry from the store she worked at and was in love with him but she ended up with Keith but Perry was okay with that.

His family all of a sudden come into the picture after to take advantage of him since he won the lottery. He wasn't so dumb after all as I found out. I loved how he did his words every day and he knew what every one of them meant and the different meanings too of each of them. I think he finally got to "U" by the end of the book. Speaking of which, I'm not going to spoil it but I cried so hard almost at the end of the book and during the epilogue. ( )

In the home stretch, I changed my 3 stars to 2.5. Still, a decent read. ( )

This is a rather sweet novel, about a “slow” person but doesn't sound authentic to me. The protagonist (Perry L. Crandall – the L is for Lucky) was very likable, and his friends were loyal. His relatives except Gram were not nice people, and Perry's Gram told him what is right and what is wrong. Although Perry was sometimes called simple, the book itself was too simplistic. Still, it was a feel-good, light story, and I learned one thing about lottery tickets that had never occurred to me before and made me laugh: Perry and Gram's strategy in buying lottery tickets was to get the ones with more numbers because you get more numbers for your money that way.
