Why You Should Read This: The first time I read this story, I enjoyed it so much that I immediately read it again. It’s sweet and moving and the characterization is really spot on. The reader can really feel the loneliness of both these men and the instant connection between them. The ending also really surprised me. Read it. You won’t be sorry.
