The narrator used different voices for the various characters. Masterful! The story is dark and full of grace at the same time. It totally absorbed me. The characters became alive. Poetic and lucious writing. Conroy is a master!
Beautifully written, took me to the moments and places thru amazing and poetic words. Felt the thoughts and feelings of Will McLain as if they were my own.
I gave up on this one halfway, then came back and worked through the whole story. That strong. Brace. Enjoy!
Well thought out. well written, and well performed. Great strong and likeable characters. One of Pat Conroy's best.
The late Pat Conroy was amongst the greatest wordsmiths of my lifetime. This book displayed his ability to sculpt and mold a story into ever more romantic, poetic and troubling turns.
An outstanding masterpiece, well written and read. Pat Conroy has filled his book with color, mystery, truth and of relationships between people, institutions, southern culture and history. God bless you Pat Conroy.
