This was my first experience in Pat Conroys world and will have to say the book was so well written that I caught myself wondering why all books are not written like this. The book brought me in to the Citadel, the world of Mel Thompson, and the Great Santini. I would listen to this book again. This was my 15th or so audiobook in 6 months. I do believe that you have to like some aspect of literature and sports to truely get all there is in this book.
Great book, probably could have downloaded the abridged and left some of the fighter boxing history out of the book, but absolutely the kind of story you wish you would here more in todays society. Great story about determination and human kindness. Want to see the movie now.
