Odell's Fall is A Gripping Read by Norman Bacal
5 Star Rating !!
It’s been proven in history that people will do crazy things for love. Oftentimes people will do things out of character in the name of love and we have seen that not only throughout history but in great works like Shakespeare’s tragedy, Othello. Norman Bacall’s book Odell’s Fall lives in the same vein as Othello in the sense that sometimes the pursuit of love and success can bring us down dark roads.
It traces the career in a high-level law firm and the story will span three books in a trilogy. Each book is based on a different Shakespeare story which is just about the coolest thing ever! This particular story is heartbreaking at times and dangerous when it comes to deceit. We meet Odell who has to cross racial lines in order to marry Dee Brabant, the Desdemona in this story. She is the daughter of a Senator who does not want the two to be married at all. The character that embodies Lago is scheming and ambitious and goes by the name of Jackson Sherman who will do just about anything to succeed. He wants to catapult his career as well as ruin the marriage of Odell. There are so many winding roads in this story that it is hard to keep up with them all but they are all deliciously engaging.
What I loved about the book was that it had a lightning-fast pace which at times kept my heart pumping. It’s a book that keeps your attention all the way through and for me, I had a hard time putting it down at night. It’s a wonderful read for anyone who is looking for a thrilling story that will keep your attention right with the characters at all times. The plot twists will keep your head spinning with a murder mystery that is ripe for our age. If you love mystery and love the old tales of Shakespeare, then you are going to love this book as much as I did.
