I can't say enough about the fabulous narration of this book! It brought the story to life in a new way.
I avoided buying this book due to the movie. This book, like so many, exceeds the movie. The story plot, the overall feeling, and presentation of the book is so much better than what was presented in the 90s with Barbra Streisand.
I miss Frank Mueller so very much! His performance in this book was award worthy. I have enjoyed listening to this book several times and cannot wait to explore other works of Pat Conroy. Prince of Tides is a journey the I think everyone should enjoy. I rank it among Owen Meany as one of my favorites!
Thank you Pat Conroy for weaving such a wonderful story. I almost thought this is a true story. It is the tragic story of 3 siblings, it tells us that the choicest we made can make or shape us, either good or bad. The "what if " each one of them had taken or made another move. I must say I feel sad at the end for the choice or sacrifice that Tom Wingo has to make.
This is definitely one of the novel in my best lists.
I loved loved loved this book. Frank Muller's performance is superb! This is one of my favorites that keeps getting revisited again and again. Each time I love it just as much as the first time I listened!
Tell us about yourself!
This is an incredible story with just about everything you can throw at life, yet, watch it struggle and grow.
incredibly vivid characters and setting. I love South Carolina and lived there for years, so this story, as these children describe their lives growing up in South Carolina, I can picture the beautiful countryside and nearly feel the sultry heat on my skin. I can easily remember breathing in the fragrant humidity and watching the stars at night. The South Carolina countryside sky at night is the singlemost beautiful setting I've ever witnessed.
Brilliantly narrated! This story is as beautiful as it is heart renderingly painful.
Great story but too much psycho-babble woven in! It just got very wordy at times, to the point that I almost gave up on it.
When Tom finally got around to telling the whole story...
My favorite part of the story was when the three siblings finally met on their secret island.
It would be Tom. He was the most down-to-earth and in touch with the truth.
Pat Conroy has a beautiful, flowing style of writing that paints vivid scenes as he tells the story.
As Tom Wingo is left to whisper the name of his lost love into the night, we are left to whisper the names of Conroy and Muller. A rare marriage of creativity and performance. Grieve not that it will never be again, but be thankful that it every was.
I I loved the movie, so I knew I'd love the book. It didn't disappoint, the narrator brought the book to Life. I I loved learning all the new detail of the story in this amazing book. I highly recommend it
