    1. Wanted to like since I grew up not that far from Syracuse. It reminded me of Richard Russo's writing which should have made it easy as pie to read but I just couldn't finish. Quit about half way through


    2. The story is told from the viewpoint of 3 main characters (though always in third person): a local boy made good who returns from NYC to his dying upstate New York hometown to oversee a project on the Lake Ontario harborfront to revitalize the town; his fiance, who gives up her advertising job to join him & pursue her painting career; & the local reporter who threatens their relationship & the town's project. It's a well-told story, with lots of good dialog writing, about loyalty to [...]


    3. While it took me a little while to get into this book and the characters in it, I really enjoy Tom Barbash's writing style. The characters themselves aren't always particularly likable, but they are honest and seem like real, and fallible, people, which I appreciated. In the end I would have finished this book much faster if I hadn't been also reading The Goldfinch as a Kindle library loan that had a due date, while this was an actual hard cover book.I wish Tom Barbash had more books published, [...]


    4. Interesting book about a small town in rural New York State that died years ago and is looking for a way to come back. The main character is a young fellow with loads of energy and a development plan that is dependent upon tourism. Hoping this will make him a fortune and return the town to happier times. Problem is that for years, toxic chemicals and hazardous waste have been buried all of the county.


    5. A pleasant, well-wrought yarn that if not quite transcendental, uses the novel form to successfully investigate questions around small town renewal and if one really can go back again. A swift, easy read that might be best tackled if you're traveling to your hometown on a family visit.


    6. A great tale, funny in parts, darkly. Very real. Carefully plotted to within an inch of its lifeERT: Tom's story, The Women, has been selected for 2011 Best American Stories!
