I have never seen this movie so I went into this book completely blind, and I‘m glad that I did. The story of Tom Wingo and his family‘s complicated history in the low country of South Carolina is one I won‘t soon forget. Conroy certainly had a way with words and I will definitely pick up some of his other works.

Lynnsoprano You can‘t go wrong with Conroy‘s books. I‘ve never seen the movie, either. I did find that having visited Charleston and the Low Country a few times really helped me visualize the settings. 6mo
Ncostell @Lynnsoprano. I don‘t think I‘m going to watch the movie because I don‘t want to ruin my experience with the book. I did go to Charleston as a kid on a family vacation many years ago and I‘d love to go back again. My sister-in-law moved there recently so I‘ll have to visit! 6mo

Headed into Beaufort, SC. Pat Conroy lived in and wrote about this area in very moving ways; so I‘ve tagged The Prince of Tides, my favorite of his books. Listened to Death of a Perfect Wife. My phone claims I‘ve walked 1.3 miles today; I feel like all I‘ve done is ride in a car. Nevertheless, I‘m going to go with it for #bookfitnesschallenge #goteam #bfcr2

1- Book- Look at the cover. Need I say more ? Any book with nekkid people on the cover. More points off if they‘re sweaty 🤢
2- Prince of Tides. One of my favorite books . The movie was a disaster. They killed the book.
3-Killing Me Softly. I DESPISE this song. I like the Fugees‘ version though. At least they added a bit of interest to the dumbest song ever ( besides maybe Walk Like an Egyptian . It gets second worst)

#WinterWonderland #runningonthinicewithtigers There‘s a couple of escaped convicts who get what they deserve after they do what they did. Just FYI, for those of you haven‘t read this, they get killed by a tiger a crazy father keeps at a gas station as means of attracting business. I‘ve only read this and Beach Music by Pat Conroy. Maybe I‘ll take a look at one of his others.

Cinfhen I thought I saw the movie but I don‘t remember any tiger🤪and I‘ve always meant to read Pat Conroy 14mo

Reggie @Cinfhen Thanks!! In the movie I think the tiger gets shown in a dream sequence. One of Conroy‘s books is used by his mom in court as evidence of abuse when she was divorcing his father. Beach Music has a Holocaust survivor story in it, it‘s not the whole book but there‘s a reason it‘s there. It was pretty good. 14mo
erzascarletbookgasm Ah, okay, thanks for explaining the connection..never read him. 14mo
Reggie @erzascarletbookgasm He‘s pretty good. The two books I‘ve read of his have to do with extremely dysfunctional families and how the kids of those families cope or don‘t as adults. He passed away a couple of years ago. 14mo
Cinfhen I‘m gonna make it a mission to read a Conroy this year....thanks for the push, Reggie❣️ 14mo

1. Tagged book because I never understood the long term implications that childhood abuse can cause. 2 Wow. Tough one. I think either JFK or MLK. Both were wonderful men , willing to stand up for others‘ rights and both died way too soon. 3. Dirty people. Wash your hair and brush your teeth. 4.TAG . If you read this , you‘re it.

For the #jasuary16 giveaway you @Jas16 my favourite literary siblings are from one of my all time favourite books. Twins Tom and Savannah Wingo and older brother Luke, share a terrible violent childhood at the hands of their brutal father. Their mother is a manipulative bitch and not much help. As adults, Tom gets on with life disguising his feelings with humour, Savannah meanwhile becomes a poet. She suffers a breakdown (one of many) 👇🏼

DeborahSmall It is this breakdown however that brings her twin brother Tom to New York to help her, he meets with her psychiatrist and finally tells her the truth of their horrendous, but at times hysterical upbringing. This book will forever be in my top 5 ❤️❤️❤️ 2y

I thought it was about time to read Conroy since I've lived my entire life in the Georgia-lina area and heard mythical tales about the author. This book did not disappoint. An epic tale of family, loyalty, and tragedy written like a love poem to the South. My only issue with the book was the dialogue between characters, which I didn't find to be genuine nor did it flow well in my opinion.

I've surprisingly never read Pat Conroy before even though I love the Low Country. Beautifully written! #leftbankbooks #lovemyindie

[DELETED] 2232195534 This one is very good! Truly! 3y
Mcoun If you like this, you should read The Water is Wide. It's one of his lesser known books, but also very good. 3y
BookAddictKatie @Mcoun thanks! That'll be next in my list! 3y
MrBook Conroy's been popping up lately on Litsy. Perhaps he's going to have a resurgence? 😊 3y
