a nice short read
This is straight forward kind of story, college graduate gay man wanting to prove his masculinity joins a crab fishing boat. In the crowded ship, where homophobic remarks are part of every almost sentence he needs to keep his sexuality a secret. Artie, an older, more experience sailor recognizes Carson’s sexual orientation, as he is also secretly gay and tries to help him learn the job and keep him safe. The sea is a dangerous place and when Carson in injured Artie faces the depth of his feelings for the young man.
I think I liked the second half better than the first, it was more romantic and balanced. It was nice all in all, but very fast paced, I would have liked more time to understand how they got to falling in love. It was such a short read that maybe less events would have made it more cohesive and balanced. It felt like a story too big for the time it had. The audio narration was good, a little fast at first, but with good range of emotion.
