Publisher's Summary

Pat Controy has created a huge, brash thunderstorm of a novel, stinging with honesty and resounding with drama. 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.

Filled with the vanishing beauty of the South Carolina low country as well as the dusty glitter of New York City, The Prince of Tides is Pat Conroy at his very best.

What the Critics Say

    "Poetry"

    Every other passage melts off the page into Muller's throat and out to your speakers. Simply put, this is a piece of art. Cannot recommend enough. Pure, genuine magic

    "Read by the character?"

    Frank Muller does an awesome job capturing the characters, it feels like a first-person telling from the character. The story is laden with wonderful sarcasm and challenging stories. I didn't know it was 30 years old until after I read it!

    I like realistic books that stretch the truth and the laws of physics...and also emotionally resonant narration that doesn't suck.

    Story
    "Most amazing book I've ever read."

    And to top it all, it was read by the best voice actor who ever read a book. Conroy died this month, and the narrator Frank Muller, a man with a magical voice and way of reading, he died several years back, before his time. On finishing this book I'm actually feeling hurt by those losses because Price of Tides touched me so deeply. The diction is so musical and vast and exacting. Emotion and atmosphere are captured here, and life is captured here with such bright honesty. Never boring and constantly beautiful and real. Can't believe how amazing this story is and how well told. It'll make you laugh many times, and out loud too, even when you're alone and hadn't thought yourself in the mood for laughs. It will make you cry as well though, for sure. I'm crying now, I feel as though I just left behind family when I finished.

    "Finally! A book I could not stop listening to!"

    I am sure I must have seen the movie based on this book a hundred years ago and thankfully I don't remember it. This book was totally awesome! For a book that was almost 23 hours long it went by in a heartbeat. I purchased this prior to Pat Conroy's passing. I saw many of his interviews recently and I do believe he captured the South as he wanted to. His tribute to Frank Mueller, the narrator, was most well deserved. I don't believe anyone could have read this book better than him. He was an amazing narrator. This is not a listen to it in bits and pieces book, this is one you dig your heels into. There are many stories within stories in this book. Very well done. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    "Astounding"

    Frank Muller narrates The Prince of Tides with all the passion and emotive force of Pat Conroy's powerful prose. A dynamic drama of a Southern family shaped in the crucible of Southern culture. Do not overlook this harrowing story told in the finest of oral tradition.

    "What a beautiful book and exquisite reading."

    Yesterday we lost Pat Conroy. 3/4/2016.
    This book was a must read back in 1973 when I first read it. And I've read and reread it.
    Today I am listening to this book.
    There is nothing like an audiobook to bring a book to delicious, full flower.
    I suggest that all his books be reread on audio. I am transported.
    This is at the top of my list of great books and great readers.

    "maniacal magic!"

    Nothing quite like a good book to help you completely neglect reality. Will listen again.
