I have read every novel, of course, as every good "fan" should...but, I've read Beach Music continuously since my first read in 1996 and have decided that Jack McCall will be my next husband *smile* It is the most flawless novel of our generation, poetic, epic, beautiful.

I had promised myself that after the long wait for South of Broad that I would read and savor it slooowly, but I read it in 2 days, and fell in love with Leo & Starla & Molly...etc... I don't know that it will be read back to back the way I've read Beach Music, but I think I'll revisit them the same way I've revisited the Wingos and Meechums. Thank you, Mr. Conroy

I so love reading your books. In fact, one of my favorite quotations comes from, "The Prince of Tides". Thanks for another adventure.

Pat, Just finished your cook book. A truly wonderful tour of Southern cooking. I just don't understand how you could write the chapter on Vidalia Onions and not include Vidalia Onion Pie. Your tongue will beat your front teeth out trying to get to a slice. A wonderful book to work through to the very last page.

My father was a China Service Marine before WWII. Anyone that has been raised by a Marine can sure understand where you are coming from. I have read most of your books over the years and may just start over again.

I read my first Pat Conroy book, Beach Music, when I was in the eleventh grade (1996). I then read every other book you wrote before I graduated the next year. I've waited 13 years for this book! It was so hard to put it down- I just love the beauty of your words. Personally, I think it's absolutely sinful to be a southerner and NOT be a Pat Conroy fan :) Thank you for this book and your many others. I'm a dedicated fan for life.

After such a long time waiting for another novel I have just finished South of Broad and loved it! All your novels have peaked my interest in the south and I surely will visit someday. I have read all your books. It would be hard to pick out my favourite because I loved them all. I hope we don't have to wait too long for another to come along.

Hi Pat, et al,
Thank you for your social statements of human understanding...not just southern. You intrigue me as a writer and as a person. My father went to the Citadel and as I read you, I know of what you are speaking. I have met, and visited with, Henry Berlin, many times; know of, and done business with, Bob Ellis...etc. "Charlie-Town" was my father's other hometown and we were there often. I understand the good and the not as good. Thank you for taking us, the readers, there again. Perhaps we should meet and then, marry! Laurie Hooper Groeschel

Have never done this before. Have always been fan. Kept dog-eared copy of "Lords of Discipline" for 24 years until a customer (Belk Dept store, by the way) brought me a hard cover copy from the bookstore at the Citadel. Read "South of Broad" this week and have now officially added to list of all time favorite books. Have quoted #10 on reasons Americans hate Southerners about 20 times so far. I am a very liberal Southerner, raised by very prejudiced parents. Your newest book touched my heart in more ways than I could ever explain. Thank you so much for that book. Please don't ever stop doing what you do so amazingly well. Thank you from the bottom of my very Southern heart.

An amazing beautiful book. I've waited so long for another one of your books Mr. Conroy. South of Broad is a beautiful story and since I am a "shrink", I just loved how you showed many readers and fans how helpful it can be to turn to psychiatrists and therapists. I love, love your writing and have ever since I read your very first book. Keep them comin! Leslie Nichols Ph.D.

Mr. Conroy, Your writing is magic. Your words create vivid and dynamic pictures of the "low country" for me; I hope to someday visit to compare my images to your reality. I miss your characters when I finish a book. They give me hope and break my heart. I have read everything you have ever published (many times). Your viewpoints of military life, education, and mental health issues are meaningful to all who have participated as members or family of those groups. My sincere thanks for the pleasure of reading your work.
