I have mixed thoughts about this book, it was a slow, calm read but yet it gave a lot of details about the town of Goliath and how one event can trigger or seem to set off other events. It all started with Vincent, a normal teenager who stumbles across the owner of the town’s furniture manufacturing plant who had been hit by a train. Rumors of why would a man of this prestige get hit by a train run through the town and the widow’s actions are something to read about. This event triggers a multitude of other events in the small town. Some individuals reflect on past event and wonder if this incident was a trigger from them. I believe it’s a case of people thinking/rehashing too much and they just need to move on. Anyways, in Goliath, the town folk are people you can relate to and some of them are trying to move on but the past just keeps bringing itself back up. I especially liked Rosamond. She tried to act like she didn’t care what’s going on but she had her nose right in everything and the way the community gathered around her like she was Dear Abby, just made me laugh. If you’re looking for a nice, slow read about a town that’s about to get shaken up…… take a walk into Goliath. I received a copy of this book from First Reads, I am giving an honest opinion of the book.
