Heartwarming yet unsentimental
If you could sum up The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio in three words, what would they be?
Terry's mom rocks.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Mrs. Ryan was an inspiring figure.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me laugh and tear up in a few spots...not cry.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed the story. It's told without nostalgia, yet somehow made me think of times now gone. I'll never forget the protagonist and the Ryan family.

Good 'slice of life' story
But too long. The first quarter or so was fascinating; the middle two quarters dragged, felt like just more of the same; but then the last quarter was engaging again. I don't regret listening to this book but definitely finished it only because I didn't want to "waste" my credit.
