"Conroy has achieved a penetrating vision of the Southern psyche in this enormous novel of power and emotion." (Library Journal)
The nuances he adds to the voices of the characters, his inflections, EVERYTHING about the way he read the story was wonderful. He brought the book to life!! I will look for more books that he narrates.
One of the most entertaining and heartfelt books I've listen to this year! Narration was perfect Storyline was witty heart tugging any tear pulling. You have to be careful when listening in public places. You can double over with laughter at any time
I bought this on the daily deal and I'm sure glad I did! I had high doubts about it. I couldn't quit listening to it! It is by far the best book I have heard all year
Southern gothic, with picturesque writing, and great narration ... vaguely remembered movie as a romance, but much more than that...full of southern eccentrics, gothis tragedy, severely dysfunctional family dynamics, and the bonds between siblings who survived their childhoods together, and became damaged adults tied tightly to one another, and ultimately their parents, by their love
