Book Description

24 Nov 2005
Some are born odd, some achieve oddness, and some are just in the wrong place at the wrong time ... The Devon family's a good example: there's thirty-nine-year-old Glenn, whose main interest in life is rubbish collection; his mother, Bel, who teaches tap steps to eight-year-olds but acts as if she's running the Kirov; and his sister, Netta, who spent her early life simply being considered mad by association. Which is why she's dreading six weeks back in their company, helping them move house. Also struggling to conform are Paul Gooding, a newly qualified doctor with a highly embarrassing past; his flatmate, Armand, who's obsessed with foot hygiene; and his colleague, Carrie, who (inadvertently) keeps killing people. Odd One Out. When enough people are out of step, they can form an army of their own ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 5 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Always think the sign of a good book is when you get totally absorbed in the lives of one or more of the characters - so this is definitely a good book! Quirky, funny and believable it's definitely worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, Funny, and touching. 18 Feb 2008
Absoloutely brilliant book. First good book i've read in ages and i couldn't put it down. The characters are funny, annoying, lovely, and utterly absorbing. It's brilliantly written and fascinating the way it all pans out.

Would recommend it in an instant.
