Winners and Losers by Steven Arnett is about a man named Tom Slotrak. He is just 26 years old, but he already feels like an old man. His life has no thrills, no excitement, and there are certainly no fun times with some beautiful woman whom he can claim and call his own. Don’t get him wrong, he has a fiancée. But the romance and passion in their relationship has just burnt out. He has his eyes fixed on one delicious piece called Lena Coffee and once he gets her attention, nothing can hold him back. Not even her motorcycle gang member boyfriend. He didn’t know that things would go south from there.

His life took an unexpected turn when he won a lottery and became super rich overnight. He never had this much money, so he obviously thought now he can buy things he never had before: like happiness. Too bad, he had no idea what money can do to a person and people around him. By some strange turn of events and some hilarious plot twists, Tom has to battle to get his hard earned lottery winnings. Or he could end up dead.

This is definitely one of the funniest and most entertaining novels I have read this year. Tom Slotrak (I’m pretty sure this surname was intended) is one gem of a character. His rants (mental and verbal), the way he walks, talks, and behaves is just priceless. I’m so glad I picked up this book. A huge thumbs up for Steven Arnett for writing such a hilarious and entertaining novel.
