A perfect book for a long airplane flight. Otherwise, it’s a bit primitive both from the plot and writing style viewpoints. Characters are shallow and a few redundant paragraphs here and there. Not my cup of tea, sorry to sound snobbish.

This book was billed in the dust jacket as showing us that every age , there are challenges to be met and new worlds to discover. For the most part it lived up to that promise. Yes, it was the usual Steel formula of a couple with a strong, good woman, a weak, not so good man and of course the 'Other woman" whom we don't know how to classify.
I was wondeirng why it was called "The Number's Game" till about the end when one of the older characters says tartly "Whatever age you are, age is just a number, and numbers have no power over you unless you allow them to. ...You're never too old or too young for anything. It's all a numbers game invented to frighten you.
At almost the end of the book the year - essentially the whole story - is summarized. Definitely one of Steel's better books.
