    Pat Conroy's father, Donald Patrick Conroy, was a towering figure in his son's life. The Marine Corps fighter pilot was often brutal, cruel, and violent; as Pat says, "I hated my father long before I knew there was an English word for 'hate.'" As the oldest of seven children who were dragged from military base to military base across the South, Pat bore witness to the toll his father's behavior took on his siblings, and especially on his mother, Peg. She was Pat's lifeline to a better world - that of books and culture.

    Sandra says: "Santini should have stayed dead"
    "Absolutely aweful--not like his fiction at all"

    Would you try another book from Pat Conroy and/or Dick Hill?

    Definitely would not read any non-fiction from Pat Conroy again.


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

    Pat Conroy comes off as an insufferable, chauvinistic, narcissist. I found his fiction (Prince of Tides, Great Santini, South of Broad, Lords of Discipline) entertaining but this book was awful. I couldn't finish it--only got halfway through--it was too boring.
