Conroy's writing is undoubtedly beautiful. His nature writing is superb - an added bonus I did not expect with this book. I found this book dull at points, but was motivated to continue by Conroy's mastery of craft.
Bleak, dark, poetic story of twins Tom and Savannah, and their very different reactions to growing up in an extremely dysfunctional South Carolina family.
RIP Pat Conroy. We who love your books will miss you, but you've suffered enough.
Three decades after its initial publication, this remains one of the quintessential Southern novels. You'll laugh, cry, think ... and in some cases, hurl - and have a marvelous time doing all four reading this book.
The story is powerful and compelling, and Pat Conroy's writing is absolutely beautiful.
Very strong story with powerful imagery and beautiful writing. Highly recommended.
My favourite family saga
This is a monumental work and one of the best books I have ever read. A "must" for a list of best American literature.
The writing is beautiful. Conroy creates images, so that you feel as if you're watching the story on a screen.
Absolutely one of my favourite books!!
