Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author Stephanie Doyon makes her impressive adult fiction debut with this wonderfully crafted novel that generated immediate buzz as an instant American classic. Cedar Hole is the armpit of the county, a town full of uninspired and shiftless people trapped by a legacy of mediocrity. A uniquely American story, The Greatest Man in Cedar Hole shows that, no matter what lousy cards we are dealt in life, we can always reshuffle the deck and hope for a better hand.

    Story
    "I listened because it was unrated ..."

    ...and I wanted to know why.

    I love Jeff Woodman as a narrator, so I knew that I would be able to complete the book. The story is a little convoluted and it was difficult to pick out the moral of the story. I'd guess it would be something like you can't judge a book by it's cover, or we all have our dark sides. The characters are pretty unlikable even if they're supposed to be likable. Most of the characters are petty and mean and unforgiving. All the characters in the book look up to one man except for his wife. In the end I wondered what the purpose of the story was and wondered about an author who felt compelled to write about such one dimensional folks. If the author's outlook on life has any resemblance to the characters in this book, then I feel sorry for her. All in all I would have to say the book was pretty shallow and uninspiring.
