I thoroughly enjoyed reading JOY. I read this in one sitting.
There’s something about a guy who’s down on his luck and the sweet and silent guy. Gideon and Silas are perfect for each as they balance out one another. Gideon’s hints at insecurity is endearing and frustrating all at the same time. Silas being a man of few words gives you the wrong impression of him in the beginning, but once you get to know him… the book blossoms!
C.S. Poe’s writing is great. The intent of all characters are clear and simple, and the writing is easy to understand. I’ve read one other C.S. Poe story and I enjoyed it. I can definitely add this author to my list of favorite authors.
