Dear Mr Connroy. It is about time. I have been waiting for another one of your stories like a dying woman waiting for a heart transplant. Thank God! You're back at it. Your book the Prince of Tides changed my life, it help me to see things within my own family in the light of truth. In doing so it saved my life. I hope one day you get the opportunity to redo the movie Prince of Tide and let it be a five or six hourr movie, hell let it be a minnie series for TV. Just don't let them change the words or rearange what you have created.

P.S. There are very few authors that have the talent you have with words they are almost musical to the reader. They also taste good... food for the soul. So don't keep us waiting so long. I hate to be kept waiting for a great meal.

Leo is what every man who grew up in the 1960's wanted to be. Naive, inquisitive, athletic, curious, horny, and saintly in his drive to help any and all. His appreciation of the low country, his evocative recollections of the sights and smells of Beaufort, as well as the daily movements of his life elicit a great portrait of simpler, innocent times. Draws me back to similar days of my high school years, none as romantic or exciting as South of Broad, but surely tender. Guess that makes me a wannabe Leopold King.

I have and would again, spend my rent money on one of your books. The movie prince of Tides disappointed me greatly, but didn't stop me from reading the book several times. You are a master story teller, and have entertained and consoled me for hours with your stories. Having a Conroy book in my hand gives me reason to go to bed early. Thank you so much. I have read that writing is the way you have worked out some of your childhood trauma, your words on paper spun into stories of the heart inspire me to write my own stories. Now I need the courage. I cannot wait for another of your big thick books. But until then I will read The Great Santini, and read again the others I have read and loved.

Thank you, Pat Conroy, for the many hours you have fed me with your words, plots and subplots. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of your books, and see you as one helluva writer--the gold standard of our times. I look forward to reading your next 3 books and, if we are truly fortunate, the next three after those!

I fell in love with the lowcountry at a young age despite being raised in Southern Appalachia. After finishing, "The Prince of Tides," I recaptured my passion for both a unique and incomparable land and the power of literary movement on ones soul. The book brought forth new ideas on not only how to live life but on how to embrace it. I now sit, finished with an amazing book, and glance at my bookshelf, excited to begin the next great piece of prose developed by Pat Conroy. I've always claimed that every new book I read is my favorite, but it will greatly surprise me if I ever read a book that has touched me the way, "The Prince of Tides," has. When looking back on great southern writers such as Faulkner and Chopin, Conroy will soon share ranks as a great American literary mind.

I love how Pat Conroy uses true stories. I remember the story of the porpoise that someone found in the wreckage of their house after Hugo and how they used a door to put it back in the water. I actually clipped that newspaper article and have it to this day. I knew the minute he started writing about Hugo that he would include that story – just as he used the story of the white dolphin, Snowball. It's what makes his writing so real (which in some "South of Broad") cases is pretty scary.

I am astounded by your prose every time I read your books. I was disappointed by the reviews the NYtimes gave. I really thought they would rate this as one of the best books ever written. Your books have very imaginative plots, but that is not the reason why I love your writing so much. I mostly love that at times your writing truly seems like poetry. I read it out loud to my husband and it sounds a hundred times more wonderful than it did in my head. Thanks for taking the time to writing quality books, rather than making tons of money to write 2 books a year. Please don't stop. I will gladly wait another 6 years for your magic.

Pat:

As the oldest of three boys (who bumped heads with my father many times), a former active duty Marine, and an over-thinker extraordinary, I identify with many of the themes in your books. Thanks for sharing your gift with the rest of us. I wish I could go back and read your novels for the first time all over again. I enjoy your wit most of all -- your ability to induce laughter even in your stories' most stressful situations is a good lesson about life. Take good care of yourself, keep up the exercising, and I hope I have the honor of shaking your hand sometime soon. You are always welcome to our home here in Loveland, if you can stand the racket from my three boys (funny how that worked out) !!

After reading and loving SOB, I got Pat's cookbook and sure enough found the Benne Wafers... has anyone noticed that there is no sugar in his recipe (all the ones on the internet that say they are from Charleston Receipts have 2 cups). EDITORS... is there an omission???
ALSO, sorry you are ill, Pat, I want my book signed and am in Southern California!!!

Mr Conroy ,Thank you, thank you. South of Broad took me on a wonderful emotional journey. You are with out a doubt one of the greatest writers of our time. I have never even thought about writing an author until I read your latest book. My grandaughter said best. I asked her the other day what she most liked about the book she just finished " Winn Dixie" She says POP POP the author made me feel like I was part of the book "You sir did exactly that. I give my word i will tell all my friends and family. That this book is one of the very best books that has ever been written. I was so enthralled when I was reading SOB I ran out and bought a second copy for my girlfriend.We finished at the same time and felt this was a book that we will never forget. Thank you again
