I won this novel through a goodreads' FirstReads giveaway.

Goliath tells the story of a small southern town, named of all things...Goliath. Goliath is a town anchored by the Harding Furniture Factory. The factory is where most of the town's residents work and the story starts as the factory's owner is found dead by the train tracks.

I found the book to be a slow read and it didn't capture my attention quite the way I had hoped. A blurb on the back compared the novel to Empire Falls by Richard Russo, which I loved...so I was hoping that I would be similarly charmed by this novel.
