What I Read Last
The description of the main character, Otto, intrigued me right away. I don’t think I have ever read a book where the main character has severe burns on half of his face. This challenge piqued my interest especially since Otto is an actor in Hollywood. I loved that this was a road trip story and the best part was that the characters in the book admit that road trip stories can be cliche. But because they say this, it makes it NOT cliche. The characters are wonderfully fleshed out and my favorite was Mo, the hitchhiker. I hope we run into her again in subsequent books. The author writes beautifully and there were some sweet moments between Otto and his ex-boyfriend, now friend and road trip buddy, Russell. “I know I can’t be with him. But I still want to be around him. It doesn’t feel good exactly. But it makes me feel something. And it’s better than what I was feeling before, which was alone.” I really enjoyed this book. It was inspiring and thought provoking and I couldn’t put it down. I look forward to reading more books about Otto Digmore.
