Read, with delight, SOB. Spent 4 years there at the Naval Hospital. You have captured all that is good, bad, and delightful about that unique Civilization. Thank you for the pleasure of this moral and amoral tale. These old eyes misted many times from the memories. Dr Al

Mr. Conroy,

I have loved your books since I was in 7th grade. I just finished "South of Broad." I relate so much to the themes of your novels...and I was raised Catholic...and I love Charleston...and I love to write. Thank you for the beautiful stories you share.

Mr. Conroy,

I just finished the audio version of "South of Broad" and I must tell you how much I absolutely loved this book. As I commute between Maryland and SC often, audio books are my friend and yours ranks up there as #1.

I loved all your characters, except Chad of course, loved knowing the settings as I've been to Charleston many times.

Thanks for an excellent read, well, listen.

Dear Mr. Conroy,
I fell in love with South Carolina years ago, when my husband described his childhood hunting for blue crabs on the beaches of Bluffton. I have yet to visit, we never had money for a honeymoon there, but know in my heart it is the home I have always longed for. My father-in-law saw me reading the Water is Wide, and said he knew your father when he was in the Marines years ago. I just finished South of Broad, a gift from my husband, who does not yet know how deeply your novel touched me. I have never before written to an author, but somehow, with your connection to South Carolina, and the military, and your deeply touching stories, I felt compelled to complement your work.
Sincerely,
Marissa Hopkins

P.S. I probably made a lot of grammar errors and worded things awkwardly, I'm not very good at those sort of things.
But then again, you weren't very good at making long shots ;)

Dear Mr. Conroy,
My AP english teacher assigned for us to read a book by you. I do not care for most books that I read from school but yours I loved. I read "My Losing Season" and it is my new favorite book. I cannot wait to read the rest of your books. I learned so many things from your story that affect my life. When I was reading the book I found myself cheering for games and yelling at what your Dad said to you.
I just wanted to share that with you.... not really sure why. I just want you to know how much I admire you and I hope I can find my voice just like you did.
Thank you for sharing your story.
Love, Emily

I have read all your books, and liked them all.
Cannot help noticing that your theme of "man's inhumanity to man" has gotten stronger with each book, and finally in South of Broad, it surrounds nearly the entire book. A little too much for my tastes. Grim, very grim.

Thank You Pat,
I have just read SOB and once again believe that you are my favorite writer. Your words capture what many of us see and feel but can't find the words or the courage to put them in print.The words are so rich and perfect and each sentence is a like a great work of art. Even though many of your stories take place in the low country they could occur anywhere. As I get older I know that life does not always turn as we have planned and we spend so much effort trying to make peace with that great canyon. My prayer for you Pat Conroy is that you will find peace and hope that SOB is the beginning of that journey. May God bless you and all your relationships.

David

Hello Pat,
Thanks for all the literary talent with which God has graced you. I've enjoyed all of your books, but first and foremost was "The Boo". Reading that book as a knob gave me the frame of mind I needed to survive that first year. Now, thirty years later, I have settled and raised four children right here in your own home town. Thanks for sharing the flavor of the Lowcountry with millions of people. El Cid '80 (Senior Private)

I just want to say that after I read each of your books the first time, I say "this is the best." But, I am rereading for the second time South of Broad and it IS the best - outshines, in my opinion your others. Leo King is my hero. Since I have never had a TV nor want one, books are my entertainment and your characters, places are easily put into my "brain" screen. Thank you so much.
