    Great summer reading book!

    I really enjoyed this book -- the plot was original, the characters held my interest, and it was very touching. Having grown up in the coal fields of Appalachia, I could really relate to the big businesss vs. simple residents theme. Can't remember having read many books about this part of the country, except by Tawni O'Dell (her book Backroads made Oprah's list). Can't wait to read Gerry FitzGerald's next book.

    Wonderful!

    I absolutely loved this book! I found myself totally absorbed in the story. I felt like I personally knew each character, especially "the Pie Man". The author truly captured this character and made you fall in love with him. I couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end. Hope there are more books to come from this author.

    Pie Man Has It All...

    The Pie Man is an outstanding literary first effort. The author illustrates a mastery of several diverse subjects, interweaving them into a very readable, intriguing tale of love, heartache, and the triumph of ethics over the exploitive appetites of corporate greed. Remarkably rich character development allows the reader to deeply experience a range of attachments and emotions - from the eminently lovable, to the thoroughly despicable. The author effectively employs humor, and has a wonderful command of language, allowing scenes to vividly come to life, and leaving the reader no choice but to rejoice at the unlikely good fortune of the underdog. Invariably, chapters end in a manner that vaguely but cleverly hint at what's to come, preventing the reader from inserting the bookmark and getting to bed! The novel teases the reader into predicting the outcome, then amending that prediction; but the story eventually concludes in a fashion that defies prediction. Oh yes, and if you don't absolutely fall in love with the Pie Man himself, you're likley incapable of falling in love!

    I LOVED this book!

    I was thoroughly enthralled and entertained by this debut novel from Gerry Fitzgerld. The characters were well developed and very easy to love or hate. I really cared about what happened to the characters, and my heart was broken at the fate of one of them. The plot never dragged, but rather moved along at a good pace. As I read the book it played out like a movie in my head, and I feel that it would make a great film. This book is the real deal, one that you will love and not want to end. Bravo.
