"Conroy has achieved a penetrating vision of the Southern psyche in this enormous novel of power and emotion." (Library Journal)
Excellent story, well developed characters and the story is tight. Have a hunch I should have read this one, not listened. Lead character's anger became monotonous and he deserves a wider palette of emotions. Still. Exquisite, evocative and it will be with me for a long time.
I absolutely loved the way you talked about the Southern Hospitality. It's all so true. I can't explain any better than Pat described it. I'm proud to be a Southern Lady.
I own this book in hardcover and I have read it at least 10x. Easily one of my favorite books of all time.
The reader in this version gave the book a nuance that was beautiful to the ear and made me discover this cherished book as if for the first time experienced. Stunning combination of a fabulous book and enthralling naration. At times throughout the book I would just sit back, close my eyes and listen (not while driving, mind you!)
Simply a masterpiece.
I was amazed at how well written and narrated this box was. expectations were low in the beginning, but satisfaction was high by the end. the narrator did shuck an amazing job with the characters. the developed the story line is well developed and wrinkles prove to be unexpected.
I'm a lone Wolf, I do what I want when I want!
Yes for sure, I think it's great book
A River Runs Through It and Other Stories. Both books have a lot to do with tell a story from the past.
No too long but if I had the time and nowhere to go I would do it.
Get it you will Love it or at least really like it
Most amazing narration ever!! I literally had goose bumps when I first heard Frank Mueller. God rest his soul.
This book will stay with me forever. It reminds us that while our families may not be perfect they are ours. Forgiveness is key and mothers are truly the key to our children's success.
I liked the book and the way the author tells story. loved the story in preface about the Hollywood narcissists saying he didn't understand the story well enough... HA
I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was top notch and captured Tom Wingo's cockiness and sound perfectly. The childhood stories were fantastic. I thought the book sort of dropped off at the end, particularly Luke's story and then when Tom leaves New York. But overall, this is well worth reading or listening to.
