|The book was as new and arrived quickly. I have always loved Pat Conroy books but the subject matter was not my thing so sadly didn't continue reading

This is a wonderful book - an autobiography describing Pat Conroy's time at the Citadel (an American military academy). Conroy was not a typical cadet, he played basketball, he wanted to be a writer and he viewed the brutal regime that was in place at the Citadel with great distaste.
It is an interesting story and Conroy comes across as a likeable and intelligent man of great personal integrity and inner strength. He has that fascinating love-hate relationship with the American South that is quite common amongst highly intelligent southerners. Conroy writes beautifully with an easy, fluid, at times almost lyrical prose style that enables him to articulate his feelings and convey an amazing "sense of place".
Determining whether you will enjoy this book is simple. If you have read and enjoyed Conroy's excellent book 'The Lords of Discipline' then you will enjoy this. If you have not read 'The Lords of Discipline' then I recommend reading it and if you enjoy it then read this.
