What I love the most about these books is how distinct the characters are. Superficially, Dylan is a trendy, urban, hipster-geek and Chris is a crude, blue-collar (no collar really) hick. But they are so much more. They are a great couple, acknowledging their differences, but stronger together than they are apart. And I continue to be tickled by Chris mocking Dylan's free-range, non-GMO, fair trade, vegan purchases, that may or may not have been pooped out by unicorns.
