Hold on tight because I am so excited about this story that I may come through your screen and force you to read it…like by force…perhaps, I’ll withhold Robporn from you…yes, I am THAT serious!
I know you’ll thank me.
Inside Man is a story of people getting to know each other in unusual circumstances and seeing if what we share via paper or even on-line can hold up to what we share in our real lives. Edward is about to be paroled (maybe) and he wants to reach out to someone on the outside to re-acclimate to talking to “normal people”.
Bella is in college and an assignment presents itself and she decides to take a chance on getting to know a stranger. The letters between the two are amazing and draw you in so much that you find yourself waiting for the next one with as much anticipation as the characters.
If read on ff.net the letters represent a chapter.
If read on ooza’s blog, Garden of Sin, then you can see the progression of the story via the actual letters between the two characters.
Inside Man takes the time to really build the connection between two people who know that what they are experiencing via these letters may not translate to the real world.
The banner’s tagline: “p.s. Do you think someday we could be real friends?” really hits at the heart of this story.
It hit me hard.
