Pat Conroy - South of Broad has actually exhausted me and I am glad to be done with Leo and his entourage! How did you ever last while writing this FABULOUS NOVEL?? I have been emotionally up and down, laughing and crying, and enthralled with your stories within "the story", your eloquent, masterful ability to thread the needle of the tumultuous events of so many changes we have experienced during these last 40 years. Your analogies were heartfelt - the beauties and destruction of this fine city, the tides of our rivers and oceans and on they go....Thank you so very much. If you have the energy to do it, please don't wait so long for your next masterpiece.

The Prince Of Tides is one of the best written books I'll probably ever read. The descriptions of where he is and what he's doing is incredibly. You get totally sucked in by the story and what he goes through. SPOILER. All the stuff with the tiger and those strange men raping them or whatever happens shocked me. I'm going to have this book with me for the rest of my life and plan to read it over and over again.
Amazing, amazing writing.

While I have seen the films made from your books, I have never read one before now. After my daughter left Connecticut to become a student at College of Charleston, I became enamored with this beautiful city. I am also a fifth generation San Franciscan. Hence, when I learned your book contained both cities, it became a must read. I have to say, it has been a long time since I felt so engaged while reading a novel. What a beautifully written work. Thank you.

Pat, thank you for sharing your gift of storytelling once again. Sometimes I need a dictionary for the exaggerated words, but it's worth it. I am also one of 7 kids. However I am slightly younger than you as I have 30 years to my name. Someday I may be near Charleston. If you happen to come about a spunky fireball of a woman (that's me :) drinking heavily near noon at the local bar--please sit and have one with me. It would be cool.

Pat, I am a huge fan of your writing. I have read all of your books and always wait anxiously for your next creation. Your prose makes me want to weep, it is so beautiful. Your phraseology and command of the English language is extraordinary. You are, without a doubt, my favorite author. I have read and listened to all of your books. I especially enjoy listening to them. The reader always has that beautiful slight southern accent that allows the listener to imagine themselves in Charleston or from whence the characters originate . My favorite books of yours are Beach Music and The Water is Wide. Are there plans to make anymore of your books into movies? Conrack was a disappointment. You have a God given talent for story telling. Please continue to write. Your fans are waiting.

What a pleasure it was to meet you last night at the book signing in Augusta. Thank you for being such a gracious visiting author! You are a true southerner. I love reading your books. You paint pictures with words. When I read your books I am always hungry for more. Thank you for sharing your talent and I look forward to reading your next book. I hope you enjoy writing your books as much as I do reading them.

Mr. Conroy, you are the finest novelist this country has ever produced, period. I have read every book you've published, most of them several times, and I treasure each and every word. I had to "ration" my reading of South of Broad, because I knew if I didn't I would read it all in one day - and I wanted the experience to last! Please keep writing as long as you want to - you bring much joy to so many people with your work. Cheers ....

It was such a pleasure to meet you last night at the book signing in Augusta. Thank you for taking the time to speak to shake hands with us. I have shared this with my students and hope to inspire them to become avid lovers of the written word.

Mr. Conroy, I bought "South of Broad" today. My brother lives on Lady's Island, in Beaufort, SC, so I've experienced some of the Low Country tastes, smells and sights that you so eloquently describe. A creative writing teacher once advised me to "ask every sentence if it has a right to be there". Not only does every one of your sentences have that right, but it feels as though I'm committing the worst kind of sin of omission if I don't savour every single word. I found it hard to move past the Prologue! The language was so beautiful that I wanted to stay immersed in each phrase. It was that "pleasure deferred" thing, the same mechanism that makes you hesitate to take the first taste of a perfect creme brulée because once you do, you know that it will soon be finished.

Pat, Years ago my mother had encouraged me to read your books. This year I read WIW and I am almost finished with Prince of Tides. Your writing is everything my mother loved and now as I have grown and developed a deep understanding from where I came, I too, so appreciate your writing talent. I see my mom in Lila, find the study of families fascinating, and thank you P.C. for your wonderful works. I look forward to reading all your masterpieces.
