Blurb: Alex’s traditional family Christmas Compromise means spending the holiday at a second-rate theme park, Poseidon’s Planet, but Alex doesn’t mind. He enjoys the rides and the company of his family, and it’s a good break from his going-nowhere existence back in Indiana. Then he meets a certain sexy employee in a pirate costume, and Alex’s vacation gets even better. But thrill rides last only a short time, and sooner or later everyone has to return to real life. Alex long ago gave up on marrying a handsome prince—will he have to give up on his pirate as well?
Review: Clocking in just thirty-four pages, Kim Fielding’s short story Exit Through the Gift Shop is bound to make you smile.
Accompanying his family every year on a cheap Christmas getaway is actually a big highlight of the season for Alex. Yes, his parents trade off on complaining about most everything, but that is all part of the magic of their trip. When they escape cold Indiana to sunny Florida and vacation at a second tier amusement park that is definitely not Disney, Alex decides to wander through the gift shop exit from a ride to buy his sister a gift for Christmas. That’s when he meets the gorgeous pirate, Rory, who, before Alex can even blink, replaces all his hopes of a Prince Charming one day rescuing him to being captured by a pirate, instead.
Love at first sight, happy ever after, implausible story yet so delightfully sweet; that just about sums up this cute short story by Kim Fielding. It’s just a snippet of happiness, that’s all it’s meant to be, so don’t go looking for great depth or a dose of realism. Just sit back and enjoy a bona fide magical love story between two sweet guys. This one is sure to satisfy the romantic in all of us.
