    PDF/EPUB South of Broad Kindle Þ South of Epub / È gigonog.me south download, broad ebok, South of book, South of Broad EpubGreatly anticipated and greatly loathed I love the other Conroy novels The Great Santini and the Prince of Tides are modern classics But now Conroy has taken the dysfunctional South Carolina family formula and beaten it into the groundWhere to start? Implausible plot elements I mean PUH leeze I can't even cover all the gimmicks Conroy throws into this plot Give your readers some credit you don't have to hit them over the head with every imaginable twist on family dysfunction all in one bookEmbarrassingly unbelievable dialogue Conroy is obviously trying to reproduce the kind of witty repartee you see on Friends but it just doesn't work here These are teenagers speaking

    PDF/EPUB South of Broad Kindle Þ South of Epub / È gigonog.me south download, broad ebok, South of book, South of Broad EpubSorry Pat but I'm abandoning this novel at 25 percent Conroy has a lot of Southern charm but this isn't his best work The dialogue was too contrived and I wasn't invested in the characters I did like the Charleston setting and the Bloomsday references but I hit a wall and decided I need to move on Conroy has such a big heart that I feel a bit guilty for not finishing but my pile of unread books is just too large to linger here I'll circle back and read of his novels in the future

    PDF/EPUB South of Broad Kindle Þ South of Epub / È gigonog.me south download, broad ebok, South of book, South of Broad EpubI am 29% into this book no page numbers on the kindlea little disconcerting Not loving it so far The dialogue is really bugging me Do people really talk like this? Is anyone else out there reading this right now and finding it irritating? I am compelled to keep going because I want to see where it is going but if the witty banter keeps up I am going to have to give up These are the oddest caricatures of Southern folk I have read in a long time Maybe I am from too far north and west of the Mason Dixon line to know people who would help these characters ring true to meI have given up for now I just could not take the dialogue any The clever characters wore me out

    PDF/EPUB South of Broad Kindle Þ South of Epub / È gigonog.me south download, broad ebok, South of book, South of Broad EpubI've had this book on my shelf almost since I first joined GoodReads 2012 Pat Conroy recently passed away and he's an author I've never read before but so glad that I had the chance to start with this oneSet in Charleston set between past 1960's and present 1980s we follow the group of main characters as we learn how they came to be where they are today The book opens on Bloomsday Ulysses fans rejoice and the Joyce references don't end there they are riddled through the pages making me antsy to pick up books The main character Leopold Bloomfield King is not attractive he's
