Daniel "Web" Weber is another great J.C. Price's narrator. He's funny and kind of sweet and as focused as he can ever be, since he has George to share his life with. He works as a guard in a museum who is going to be closed if it's not granted a contribution by a benefactor. To keep the museum alive, the management is trying to revive the outer appearance of the museum. Jesse Ray Jones is the taxidermist who is called to do a little bit of last minute make-up on the exhibits.

Web and Jesse are immediately attracted to each other. Jesse's no-fuss acceptance of George is really moving, as Web's marvel at that. Their teasing and the way they get to know each other is a joy to read. There are great secondary characters around them, especially Alex - Web's cousin - and Alex's wife ... uhmmmm ... pick-up-her-laundry Kathy. Don't worry, you'll get it when you read the book. The museum with its resiliance and its staff are also protagonists of the story and they help give a slightly crazy touch to the story.

Web is a character who is dealing with the cards he's been given. He is trying to deal with George at the best of his abilities, devising little tricks to keep track of what's going on in his life. He holds on to his job because he needs it. He talks of his life before George with a bittersweet melancoly, but even if life has been pretty cruel with him, it didn't crash his spirit and his dignity. He is one of those characters you want to hold and protect.

It's a highly recommended, touching book. And before you ask, it's not about a threesome.
