"Often funny, always lovable, this endearing novel of obsessive compulsive disorder and romance is outstanding."
--Boston Globe

An absolutely delightful tale of obsessive-compulsive love, Toni Jordan's Addition is just the ticket for fans of TV's Monk and readers who were captivated by The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. A wonderfully funny, supremely intelligent debut novel, Addition is "witty fun" (People), while OCD-afflicted heroine Grace and her new-found paramour Seamus are "thoroughly endearing characters, and their romance is sweet and fun" (Washington Post Book World).

Grace is brilliant, funny, quirky and alone. Triggered by an accident that occurred in childhood, she is obsessed with numbers. Her obsession has made her unable to function well in society. She meets Seamus, they begin dating, and he works to break Grace out of her routine. Addition tells the story of how Grace and Seamus work through their relationship and deal with her obsessive-compulsive disorder. A bit racy.

Fascinating view into the struggle of someone with OCD. Really challenged my ideas and helped me appreciate the condition.

Enjoyed the premise of the story and looking in on someone's life with OCD. Didn't particularly enjoy the writing style as I found it to be a bit all over the place. I did enjoy that it was based in Australia.
