Now try to imagine you have won first prize again and again...?
Silly question but how would you feel?
Would life now be a bed of "very expensive roses"?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a multi -millionaire?
Of course you have... though it may not be all that it's cracked up to be?
Legally Lucky explores this dimension of money, excess and the distinction of wealth versus quality of life.
Raj, like many of us, aspires to become wealthy, want for nothing and live life to the very full.
As millions of others around the planet, he takes a weekly punt on the national lottery.
Gambling on the lottery is a low risk high return pastime.
However, the odds are piled against winning but you have to be in it to win it and if you don't take part, the chances of winning are nil! This is what traps the player in.
We can all dream of what we would do if we won, where we would go, what we would buy, in fact, what wouldn't we buy....
What happens to Raj and his family as a consequence of winning becomes a short lived happy event.
Luck, in this instance, needs to be proven in order for Raj and his family to regain control of their lives, dignity, freedom and normality.
This enjoyable story aspires to help us all in ensuring we live life to the full.
It is okay to have dreams and aspirations but don't loose a grip on reality. It enables the reader to empathise with the characters in the book whilst allowing them to put luck, wealth and money into perspective.
The message is "be grateful for the experience of life and enjoy the adventure that it is in itself" whatever the financial circumstances are.
This story is fiction mixed in with hope, a dash of suspense, a trickle of comedy topped with a twist of cruelty and an enthralling plot.
It is certainly a "different" read and an enjoyable "can't put it down book" that examines the other side of being wealthy and lucky. Courtroom dramas and thrills aplenty, it will immerse you in an alternate reality you may not want to associate with being rich...
One thing is certain, Legally Lucky is certainly worth a punt.
