This is a delightful read about two lonely thirty somethings. Benny is a dairy farmer and Shrimp is a librarian. I found Benny to be a more likeable character than Shrimp-----Shrimp seemed unwilling to compromise. It is a quick read divided by chapters and each chapter is told from the other’s viewpoint. It is a most enjoyable and quick read. It is a translation from the Swedish and I am never sure with translation if it is the author I like or the translator.
Request Benny & Shrimp from the Bangor Public Library
