Gustavo Tiberius is not normal. He knows this. Everyone in his small town of Abby, Oregon, knows this. He reads encyclopedias every night before bed. He has a pet ferret called Harry S. Truman. He owns a video rental store that no one goes to. His closest friends are a lady named Lottie with drag queen hair and a trio of elderly Vespa riders known as the We Three Queens.
Gus is not normal. And he’s fine with that. All he wants is to be left alone.
Until Casey, an asexual stoner hipster and the newest employee at Lottie’s Lattes, enters his life. For some reason, Casey thinks Gus is the greatest thing ever. And maybe Gus is starting to think the same thing about Casey, even if Casey is obsessive about Instagramming his food.
But Gus isn’t normal and Casey deserves someone who can be. Suddenly wanting to be that someone, Gus steps out of his comfort zone and plans to become the most normal person ever.
This author is is becoming one of my favorite go to audio book authors for sure.
His characters are so multi dimensional you just don’t know what you’re getting getting until you’re listening/reading and in turn getting sucked into the story being told.
Case and point, this one. you think, average person, average life, then wham, three woman walk into his video store wearing matching jackets and they rest of the story is one brilliant hot mess after that.
Gus is the best at being or trying to be the most average person ever. Problem is he’s not… at all. And Casey, is such a wonderful compliment to that it’s amazing.
As these two figure out each other, life, the town, everything we have the pleasure of going on the journey with them.
All the secondary cast make up this tale, and honestly with out this wouldn’t have been the same.
And true to form, what a wonderful HEA to round it out.
