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
Conroy is masterful in his writing. He is poetic and. touches your heart with his characters. The Prince of Tides atory is only alright. The sadness and tragedies of what families can go through is absolutely gut wretching. But it shows that families are resilient and can get through the bad times but they are scarred.
Frank Muller is a masterful storyteller. This story is not only told well, but the writer is explicit with the interwoven memories provided throughout. I sat in the car listening and could not tear myself away.
This book was very dark to the point where if something good was happening you almost didn't trust it. But it was a very interesting look into the south and a culture that was both generationally and locationally different from my own. Overall I created a deep relationship/understanding with all of the characters which I think only good books can do. At the end of the book I was satisfied and I don't regret anytime I spent listening.
This book is truth for many. There is abuse, alcohol issues, affairs, and it's written artfully, it's soulful and I know the characters. I care about them. The story is deep and worth the read. The audio version is excellent.
