One of Frank "The Master" Muller's best reads, may he rest in peace. This is a great book with an eloquent intro read by the author, Pat Conroy, himself as even he pays homage to the late, great Mr. Muller.
The narrator grew on me. I honestly could not tell you if the negative comments biased me towards him or not.
Listening to Conroy is like listening to a symphony.
Everything about this book was 100% top shelf from start to finish without exception! The narrator the story it was all fantastic...
Great book if you want to expand your English vocabulary, and an enjoyable book with no real plot but great character development. I grew up in a similar family, without the tragedies, and a similar south that was a little more west of the Atlantic. I think Pat Conroy is a little bit too hard on the parents, but that's just my opinion, and Pat Conroy is a very talented writer.
A bit effusive at times, both in terms of the narrative and the reading of it. But engaging enough to power through this great southern tome.
Love this guy. And you do or if you don't you call his writing purple prose. To me the language in his books is mesmoring. I can smell it see it and feel the pain. It is a large part of the human condition. I know his dear dear friend, Anne Rivers Siddons has written her last book and that makes me very sad. Some of her best books are not on Audible or are abridged. Wish Audible would step up and have these recorded. Am old and have eye condition!
