Sometimes the world can be a small place
That's what Cody & Darwin think, when they meet at Hamburger Mary's. Both young men moved from the Midwest to more liberal Denver/Colorado to shake off their narrow minded small towns. Cody has little self-confidence and struggles with what a handsome, successful man like Darwin sees in him. The start of their relationship is carefully slow and tenuous, for which I loved patient Darwin and wanted to hug Cody and tell him, he truely deserved it. The colourful bunch making up the staff, is the heartfelt, caring family Cody never had. They and Darwin support him and stay at his side when he hits an all-time-low in his young life.
Brandon Witt's writing style is fluent and his dialoges are refreshingly authentic, making it easy to get sucked into the story instantly. Guess, I fell in love with the unwavering supportive Hamburger Mary's family and their banter and light hearted teasing as well. As for a novella with fewer pages it is not surprising that Darwin & Cody's slowly getting closer, still felt a bit rushed to me with many things untold and their rather complex issues just tacked briefly.
Gerrod Larkyn has done a stunning narration with those soft-spoken young men. Darwin and Cody's voices are gentle, bringing out their personalities perfectly, but still one is able to distinguish them easily throughout the story. He read the scene at the hospital with such warmth and sadness that my heart ached for what both men had to go through before finding each other.
