    Story

    Spanning 40 years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.

    Would you try another book from Pat Conroy and/or Frank Muller?

    Not another book by Pat Conroy, but certainly one from Frank Muller.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The book left me disappointed. It was an gratuitous exercise in eccentricity. Instead of delving into the psychology of his main character, Conroy transforms the whole story in a circus act. The climax of the book is so ludicrous and conceited it made me roll my eyes. The ratio by which he went seems to have been "The weirder, the better." He also seemed to think that more was more in terms of plot, which frankly he does not have a good grip of.
    There are still some wonderful scenes and great dialogues here in there in the book, but they can't make up for the lack of cohesion.


    Any additional comments?

    In the end, I found the whole book absurd and truly unrealistic. The Addams Family seems far more true than the Wingos.
