The Layover Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

But, there is SO MUCH MORE to this brilliant novella.
This is exquisitely written with lyrical language and descriptions. The flow is fluid and we are held in this story's grasp. I don't have enough words to explain how terrific this novella is. Deep, timely, sexy, meaningful, pertinent, heartwarming, and intense.
Loved it ! I'll read this over and over. I hated to let go of our magnificent characters.
Thank you Roe Horvat.
Highly recommended ! ENJOY !
This is my favorite kind of book about human relationships and connection, when life just happens and people make brave choices to try to make a life for themselves.
I love the quick dialog, the realistic chains of events between Ondro and Jamie, I love the last chapter where we get a piece of what happens after. The ending is perfect for this story, not too much and not too little.
If this is what Roe Horvat is about then I can't wait to read his next books! Congratulations Roe for this amazing success, be proud, be very proud!
There is so much that happens in this book, mostly in Ondro's head, and nothing that really happens at all except that Ondro grows day by day as a human who is subject to feelings he long abandoned. Jamie, whose unfortunate sudden illness turns out to be the pivotal, and virtually only, plot device, takes life a little more openly than Ondro. These two are special individuals separately and spectacular when they enter a relationship drenched in doubt, fear, and growing love.
This one is apparently the only book released to date by the author. It is one of the best first M/M novels I have ever read and should not be missed.
I was craving for a simple love story, where the beauty is the simplicity of human emotion- two lives suddenly thrown together in the midst of reality, and the ensuing night of simple love that follows.
Ondro Smrek receives life-changing news about his past lover and decides to go to his home country of Slovakia for the first time in eight years. Upon arriving to Brasil, Switzerland for a layover, he is unexpectedly delayed and at the airport he meets and is intrigued by Jamie, an American living in Scotland.
Well, it's not exatly simple-touching-love story because of its strong undertones: the difficulty of being raised in one of European Union’s most conservative countries, the impact of the anti-LGBT referendum held in Slovakia in 2015, the backstory of Ondro’s first love, and the scene with his mother towards the end of the story. I love when an author includes parts of the language and culture they’re writing about, it really does make a difference.
'The Layover' is a well-written book that details the characters and focuses on the relationship and I will certainly look forward to future works by the author
Personal I was so happy to see one of my favorite foods, one that I learned from my Hungarian grandmother, become a part of the story. I also identified with the comparison of crepes to palichinka. I felt a connection to Ondro.
Ondro is an intense, not ugly, but not traditionally handsome guy who has finally stopped running from his past.
Jamie's just on his way back home. He's a super smart guy and not into one night stands, but he tried Ondro for one night, and kept him after seeing him for what he was. A guy looking for love.
