"Daniel Pyne's A Hole in the Ground Owned By a Liar will put to rest any idle fantasies the reader may have of setting out prospecting for gold. A harrowingly funny story of brotherly strife, amorous misconduct, and small dreams blown disastrously out of proportion. I loved it." --Scott Phillips, author of The Adjustment and national bestseller The Ice Harvest

Author: Daniel Pyne
Lee Garrison is bored and needs a definite diversion in life. Teaching is his primary career but some excitement and fun at his age would really get his motor running and engine restarted. Lee decides to do something many do and that is see what is out there on EBay. But, most buy jewelry, bid on various items, IPODS, phones and more but Lee is different. He decided to buy something everyone would love to have if it really was real, yielded the profits you might want. No, you won't guess what it is so I will have to tell you: A GOLD MINE! Yes, you read it right. This man decided to find his new found adventure and fun in searching for the one thing everyone wants GOLD! But, there is much more as we meet Lee, understand his frustrations in life and what he needs to do to find the one purchase he made that he cannot seem to locate even with the map that supposedly gives him the location. So, teaching is not what he finds fulfilling although some do as I did. The mine has a dual fold purpose. Lee's brother was just released from prison and hopefully this venture will increase his earning capabilities and keep him out of jail. Where would you find this outstanding acquisition: Colorado. But, would you buy it without seeing it first and finding out if there really is gold? Lee did! So, the author begins with his brother's release from jail and the waitress he meets and wants to snag for his own purposes. Then we meet Rayna who Lee seems drawn to from the start and who helps him with his cuts and bruises when he falls into a deep hole.Read more ›
In this book he gives us not only situations that are easy to relate to but a storyline that keeps our attention and has us rooting for a positive outcome right to the end. We meet brothers Lee and Grant, each looking for something but have their own unique ways of going about finding it. For Lee his search takes him out of his comfort zone and on a journey that mirrors that he which he seems to be going through in different part of his life.
Lee's brother Grant for me was a little harder to figure out, but in the end it seems as though he might have more of the spunk that Lee wants himself. The story that unfolds is not just about an adventure but about the possibilities that life brings us.
Written in a way that the story just seems to develop right before our eyes, one can see why Pyne is praised the way that he is for telling a powerful story. Full of whit, colorful characters and life lessons to boot, Danie Pyne shines with A HOLD IN THE GROUND OWNED BY A LIAR.

I was expecting more from this book. Reading the excerpt on the back, it sounded better than it actually was. But, to be fair, I didn't hate the book. Read morePublished on May 19, 2013 by Tegan U
