Odd One Out by Lissa Evans – book review


Remember the Fiat Palio Ad, the one where the owner gets uppity when his car is described as nice?  Well I’ve come to a point where there is a space for nice.  Nice is comforting, and … well, nice.  I’ve just read Odd One Out by Lissa Evans, and it was nice.  Reviews on the cover used words like “hilarious” and “very funny”, I found the humour subtle.

The characters were all endearing, which counts for a lot, it is hard to enjoy a book when you dislike the characters.  The story is quirky and well told.  I have an aversion to ‘arty’ endings, which are generally miserable.  There is misery all around me, I don’t have to embrace it when I enter a fictional world.  There are exceptions such as Me Before YouOdd One Out led to a happy, satisfying ending.  I will be looking out for more books by Lissa Evans.  I had never heard of her before, and stumbled upon this while at the library.


  1. Aaah that’s the ad. “A cup of tea is nice…” I’ve been wondering bout the product being advertised for ages but just couldn’t get to it.

    I love some light reading material between the hectic gut wrenching stories. Will keep an eye out for Lissa Evans.
