Sunday Mini Review: Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy

How I absolutely loved this book. I was living a year abroad, and when my sister and her friend came to visit, they brought this one to me. I didn’t know the author at all, and was at this time of my life reading either Stephen King or Jackie Collins and preferably nothing else.

Prince of Tides is about a dysfunctional and poor Southern family. About violence and rape. And supressed childhood memories. Doesn’t sound like a wonderful book, does it? I guarantee that it is, because it is also about love, friendship and family. In fact, I think I am going to re-read soon.
