This book displays the drama of living in and surviving a volatile family and the complexity of love through well thought out and sometimes even beautiful prose.
Conroy fills up the empty spaces with deep philosophical questions ranging from the environment to war to adultery. I don't agree with or condone all of the conclusions Conroy's characters seem to come to but I am eternally greatful for the chance to ponder them.
I wish all audible books were as captivating as this great story narrated perfectly and spoken like a literary masterpiece. it's was music to my ears.
Frank Muller brilliantly brings to life Pat Conroy's story The Prince Of Tides. His voice is like lustrous silk, bringing to life the characters and images, leaving his listener in a dream like state craving to hear more.
I have not read the print version but loved the audio narrative. The story is a perfect match
for Frank Muller's voice. Pat Conroy paints with words and I was swept away with the beauty.
The portrait of the family dynamics is very well done.
Pat Conroy wrote an amazing book that described the atonement of Love in a family that gave it the best they knew how. Frank Muller spoke those words with compassionate candor and made embrace the consciousness of a Wingo.
Thank you to the both of you!
I read this book over 20 years ago. I have always thought of it as my "favorite," book. Listening to the audiobook was like reading/living/feeling it all over again. It is a timeless story, written with such eloquence that I could laugh and cry in the same sentence. The narration is perfection. It is a classic in the truest sense.
No, only because I don't listen to the same story twice or read the same book twice.
This was in some ways a modern Gone with the Wind. This was the south of modern times with shrimpers scratching out a living in South Carolina. It's a beautiful, sad story.
Susan Lowenstein - only Frank Muller could do female voices and make them sound believable and intelligent. The man was a genius!
It made me laugh and cry. The book ran the gamut.
I read this title years ago in print. This performance of that marvelous book is for owning and listening to over and over and over. What a pleasure!
