RIP Pat Conroy. We who love your books will miss you, but you've suffered enough.

Three decades after its initial publication, this remains one of the quintessential Southern novels. You'll laugh, cry, think ... and in some cases, hurl - and have a marvelous time doing all four reading this book.

This is a monumental work and one of the best books I have ever read. A "must" for a list of best American literature.

The writing is beautiful. Conroy creates images, so that you feel as if you're watching the story on a screen.
