finished reading

I wasn't sure what to expect from this audiobook. The opening is “My name is Perry L. Crandall and I am not retarded. Gram always told me the L stood for Lucky.” But it wasn't sappy and it wasn't heartless world versus good guy.

From the publisher:
Perry L. Crandall knows what it's like to be an outsider. With an IQ of 76, he's an easy mark. Before his grandmother died, she armed Perry well with what he'd need to know: the importance of words and writing things down, and how to play the lottery. Most important, she taught him whom to trust, a crucial lesson for Perry when he wins the multimillion-dollar jackpot. As his family descends, moving in on his fortune, his fate, and his few true friends, he has a lesson for them: never, ever underestimate Perry Crandall.

I first read Lottery several years ago and have read it a couple of times since. I absolutely love it. It is probably my favorite book after the Bible and Little Women.
