4.0 out of 5 stars Greed is a powerful motive 9 May 2012
By VickiT
Format:Kindle Edition
"A thunderous bang shattered the surreal moment as the car hit the slope of the mountainside. Jason watched trees and bushes fly by as he stomped with full force on the brakes. The seatbelt cut into him like a violent fist refusing to let go. He lost all orientation when the car started tumbling down the slope." - The Lottery Ticket: A Novel

The Lottery Ticket: A Novel is a fast-paced, easy-reading thriller populated with complex characters, each with his/her own agenda. Greed is a powerful motive.

Eldridge's writing flows with an ease and naturalness that makes reading a pleasure. It's a "clean" story - no offensive language or the like - which also makes it suitable for a younger audience.

I look forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story 26 July 2011
By Kristi Burchfiel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
What would you do if you won a billion dollars in the lottery? What if others learned you had won it before you did and were plotting to take it away from you by any means necessary? This is the scenario faced by Jason Breezey in Tony Eldridge's book, "the Lottery Ticket."

Tony has a masterful way with words as we are taken deep into the world of corporate corruption. Eighteen year old Jason tries to cope with the death of his father, and yet is being dragged further and further into an underground world for originally unknown reasons. As he pieces together the mystery of his father's last few days and the existence of the winning lottery ticket he never existed, we are taken on an incredible journey full of twists and turns.

I thoroughly enjoyed Tony's book. I found it captivating and couldn't put it down until I had finished it. The book is fast paced and the plot twists were exciting and made for great story-telling. If you enjoy action and adventure, you will love "The Lottery Ticket."

4.0 out of 5 stars A big lottery win can change your life for the better or can make your life miserable !! 3 Jun 2012

The Lottery Ticket: A Novel was a page turner for me starting from the descriptions on the very first page and kept my interest through out the entire story. This story hits you like drinking many cups of caffeine coffee, soda or energy drinks, which overstimulates you. You find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat turning the pages as fast as you can read, at times holding your breath, concentrating and thinking what is going to happen and what is the outcome going to be. There are many many twists, threats, turns, sad times, depressing times, a few loving friends and you wonder about what the uncertainties are ahead for Jason.

Shows you who your friends really are and who all the greedy people you know who have only one thing in mind when it comes to money. This is a well thought out mystery/thriller story.
The Lottery Ticket: A Novel by Tony Eldridge is the first story I have read by this author and I look forward to reading his next book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great premise for a well-told story 16 Sep 2011

Tony Eldridge has taken a great premise, one to which anyone would have a strong emotional reaction -- What if you won a fortune in the lottery? -- and made it even more interesting with thriller-writer's twist -- To what lengths might others go to claim the prize for themselves?

Highly recommended for anyone who likes believable characters in exciting situations, a great way to spice up your reading list.
3.0 out of 5 stars Fact paced mystery 25 July 2011
By Mona AlvaradoFrazier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If I could have given a 3.5 I would have however because it's better than ok but less than 100% liking it. Overall I liked the plot. The quest is to find the "lottery ticket," worth a billion dollars. There are interesting subplots which add twists and turns in this fast paced read. The main characters (Protaganist,his friend, and the Antagonist) believable and interesting.I liked that there were young adults in story who weren't stereotyped.

What interfered with the reading were the shifting points of view (pov's) with the same chapter and some violations of pov. This had me slow down in my reading and ask 'who's talking now?' There are also some inaccuracies of law enforcement terms and processes that deter from the authenticity of the story. If you reference LAPD, ensure they have a CSI unit (they don't-called something else),same for FBI protocols (when an agent is missing all hell breaks loose looking for an agent-but not so in story, there are no internships for 19-20 year olds either).

Closure was satisfying and we know there will be a sequel.
