I would never have read this book, had it not been left in a pile of paperbacks on a rig offshore, and I had I not finished the two books I brought with me already I honestly had no idea what to expect, and almost put it down after 13 pages because Talladega Nights was on HBO.But I didn t, and I spent large chunks of my afternoons once back onshore reading this monstrosity Beach Music is a grand, sweeping novel of a Southern man in a Southern city in a Southern state South Carolina, ironically B [...]

I met Pat Conroy at a book signing event in Atlanta when this book was released There just so happened to be another Furman Alumni in line ahead of us and I heard Conroy say something about Furman I spoke up making sure he knew I was there His response was something like You Furman people are like Lynx, you re everywhere So, thinking I understood that his spat with The Citadel had turned him sour against the school I made some smartass, derogatory comment about The Citadel He signed my book Cita [...]

Beautiful It s weird because there s something amateur unintellectual about his writing, yet it s profoundly wise and he comes up with poetic comparisons all over the place I can t place it Maybe the characters are a bit too cheesy at times Hopeless romantic I don t know But he writes about insanely tragic things and with utter understanding This and Prince of Tides are very healing books they have a raw power One paragraph summed up my Mom in such beauty that that is all I need to know I can st [...]

The back cover of this book doesn t give a very good description of what the plot is about And why would it how could it , when the plot is this much of a mess In short Jack McCall is an American who moves to Rome with his young daughter after his wife commits suicide, intending to never see anyone from his past again including his own family , but he eventually comes home and starts dealing with the past.The long version of the plot is I don t even know where to begin, the book is such a mess I [...]

Possibly one of the worst books I have ever had the misfortune to read I bought it after hearing Nan Talese, Conroy s editor, talk about how it was put together In retrospect, I should have realized that her telling of how Conroy was impaired by drink and depression during the writing of the book, and her active role in putting the book together meant it would be a crazy quilt hodgepodge rambling Faulkner wannabe of a book When the Nazis showed up, I though, Oh My God.

Pat Conroy is a magical writer, and his Beach Music, is no exception This is perhaps my favorite book of all time, though I do alternate with his other, The Prince of Tides, so beware that I m reviewing Beach Music as a committed Conrophile, if such a phrase could exist Jack McCall is a sweeping character, and when the book opens, we find he and his daughter ensconced away in Rome after a family tragedy What follows is a story that, in my opinion, weaves a brilliant quilt of familiarly eccentric [...]

Not so much a book as a life experience, Pat Conroy s Beach Music covers a heck of a lot of topics Like his other titles this one has family and friendship are the forefront but the scope of this novel was vast covering alcoholism, suicide, schizophrenia, domestic violence, religion, the holocaust, the vietnam war, politics, trust, sickness, survival, and love in all shapes and sizes He so thoroughly tackles each topic it sometimes felt like he d written several books in one Primarily set in Wat [...]

Pat Conroy has done it again A fantastic 5 star audiobook on cassettes I could not stop listening to this novel until it was finished Wow Thanks to my friends who recommended this masterpiece with their excellent reviews My only regret is that it has taken me until today to find BEACH MUSIC and read it It is about love, childhood, dysfunctional families, horrors of World War II, abuse, growing up, university days, environmental issues, anti Vietnam War demonstrations, priesthood, mental illness, [...]

This is a really beautifully written story.I ve purchased this book no less than 4 different times Every time someone saw it they wanted to borrow it and somehow it never got returned My mother in law filched the last copy I bought and she SWEARS it belongs to her.I picked up yet another copy to take away with me and read while traveling and am truly enjoying re discovering just how wonderful it is to read Pat Conroy.I m so pleased to have picked this book up again What a joy to read such artful [...]

While competently written and quite entertaining, Beach Music tries to be too many books in one I didn t think the various aspects of the story resonated with each other enough to belong in the same book I felt that Conroy could have written three tighter novels with the material he packed into this one loose one For example, the long backstory about Lucy s childhood, while interesting, could have been shortened considerably or left to the imagination It was enough to know she wasn t of good bre [...]

I was initially skeptical about starting up one of these blockbuster novels, but Beach Music s prologue was surprisingly well written and I found myself strangely captivated to read on As a testament to the quality of that prologue, I waded through a couple hundred pages of overwrought and overweight storytelling just to find some closure on the Jack McCall s wife s suicide mystery There would be times in my reading when I had to look away from the book because the prose would be so sentimental [...]

Prior to reading Beach Music, I had only experienced Conroy in his reading memoir, My Reading Life Since I knew he would be at the SC Book Festival, I spent most of my reading time this past week coming back to this book I had started it on a beach trip with my sister over spring break, but some of the topics were a little too close to me at that time.Jack, the main character in this novel, has lived in Rome with his daughter Leah ever since his wife Shyla committed suicide and he had a very clo [...]

I ve read Beach Music twice After the first reading, 15 years ago, I decided it was one of the best books I d ever read Now, in 2010, I finally re read it and came to the exact same conclusion It is simply a brilliant, complex work that few writers other than Pat Conroy would even attempt to pull off.Those who don t like the book usually focus on its length nearly 800 pages , and what they call the indistinguishable brothers When it comes to book length, my view is that a bad book at 50 pages is [...]

I can count on one hand the number of books that have made me cry This is one of them I chose this book because its cold here in Minnesota this time of year and I wanted to be whisked back to warm South Carolina, a state I ve been privileged to live in South Carolina gets into your blood and so does Conroy He s simply a master of words, some of his descriptions so achingly beautiful that I had to reread them just to see if I had imagined them This is a brutal book touching on the topics of the H [...]

I wanted to like Pat Conroy s Beach Music Really, I did The opening paragraph a stunning, lyrical evocation of a young woman s suicide drew me into the sprawling, eight hundred page tome At first glance, the book seemed to have all the elements of a rip roaring good yarn betrayal, forgiveness, intergenerational conflict, and a number of love affairs thrown in for good measure At the story s start, we meet main character Jack McCall, who with only his daughter, Leah, for company is living in volu [...]

I fell in love with Pat Conroy s writing while on holiday at Hunting Island, South Carolina it was accidental though, my professor at grad school had reccomended him and I thought it looked like a good meaty read for a beach holiday I didn t have any idea that he sets most of his books there and is from there But it just hooked me in and I could hardly put it down to even walk down to the beach from our camp site This might very well be up there with Diana Wynne Jones s A Tale of Time City as my [...]

My Original Notes 1996 The BEST I think this has to be one of the very best books I ve ever read I couldn t put it down and didn t want it to end I want to read everything Pat Conroy has ever written He writes the most beautiful sentences and I felt like I could see, hear, taste and smell everything he described The characters became a part of me I laughed I cried What a beautiful, lyrical book I recommend it to everyone Rod read it in a few days and enjoyed it, too.My Current Thoughts As I grow [...]

I love almost anything by Conroy, but this in my humble opinion is his greatest masterpiece My husband used to read this book to me when we were dating he in Colorado and I in Athens, GA , and when we ran out of things to talk about, he would read to me about Jack McCall Conroy tells some beautiful albeit sometimes, heavy stories He paints gorgeous pictures of Italy, South Carolina, and some heartwrenching tales of the life of a man trying to escape his past My favorite moment in the book, by FA [...]

To read a book by Pat Conroy is to come to the realization that so much of everything else I read, and think is good, is truly just an appetizer getting me ready for the main course which is what Conroy is Every sentence you read lures you into the web of Conroy s storytelling This is a book that will take you from the piazzas in Rome to the low country of South Carolina You will fall so deeply in love with each setting that you couldn t possibly decide which place you would prefer to live.Reade [...]

I have read this book at least a dozen times, and it remains one of my very favorites I can t recommend it enough.The story centers around Jack McCall, who leaves his home in South Carolina and moves to Italy with his daughter, Leah, after losing his wife The story follows Jack and Leah as they make a new life in Italy, eventually return to South Carolina, and cope with the loss of their beloved wife and mother There are interesting subplots throughout, along with beautifully written characters, [...]

I love Pat Conroy s writing.

Patrick Conroy hurls words and ideas at you and they all land in a perfectly harmonized formation of drama, humor and outrageously engaging characters His gift for creating characters from words on a page to larger than life people is magnificent Beach Music incorporates some very difficult topics and weaves together a number of complex story lines, which intertwine in this multi generational epic In all his books he is excellent at depicting dysfunction in families and this book is no exception [...]

A good epic southern novel I forgot how much fun it was to read these types of books full of family drama, unrealistic and over the top characters, and some good old romance I remember really enjoying Conroy s Prince of Tides when I read it back as the oldest 10th grader you ll ever know this book has a similar feel to it Jack McCall has fled to Rome after his wife commits suicide He takes his daughter, Leah, with him and vows never to return to the South as there are too many painful memories t [...]

Do I have a category for mess Nope.What about sensationalistic drivel Nope.Maybe I should be grateful and take it as a good sign that I have not had to waste hours reading books that never should have been written I just prodded through 628 pages of everything but the kitchen sink SchizophreniaSucideHolocaustRacismVietnam RiotsChild AbuseWife AbuseInfidelityCancerAppalachian tragediesRescue of Sea TurtlesIncarcerationd I am only half through What a disaster Pat Conroy squeezed so much in, he abs [...]

This one covers the same ground as Prince of Tides, but not nearly as well Prince of Tides was compelling and the writing was beautiful, but Beach Music rambles I wanted to find out what happened, but I just got tired of slogging through it all

Set in the American South and Rome, this is one of my all time favorite books Would give it 10 stars if I could I loved the complex family dynamic AND the food descriptions I really enjoy reading people s descriptions of food One of the main characters is a food critic and he discusses the meals be prepares for his broken family at various points in his life This character also finds cooking soothing and a way to escape I m happy for this character that he has a job that is one of his passions I [...]

I read this a while back, but reread parts of it over the holidays and gave it as a gift to my brother Bill It deals with several friends who grew up together in the 60 s They had various family problems one was a child of holocaust survivors, another had a physically and verbally abusive father, while yet another had an alcoholic father and a weak terrified mother Because we grew up with an abusive step father and an alcoholic father, it was the first book I ever read that I could actually iden [...]

I guess this goes on the mainstream shelfe fact that it s the only book there right now says something about my tastes in reading Anyway, I bushing loved this book The end.Oh, well, I guess I could go into some detail The characters are fun, the stories they have are enthralling, and the settings are wonderfully described The plot moves in a less than linear fashion, with flashbacks forming a significant portion of the book, but that s just fine.And not only are the characters fun, they re also [...]

I wanted to like this book I had high hopes of immersing myself into a 628 page indulgence I was prepared to be wowed and was overwhelmed instead I cannot begin to summarize the plot, and won t waste your time in doing so because it was all over the map Beach Music contains enough material and subplots to write several novels I found it tedious I did not fall in love with any of its characters and frankly was in agony while determined to reach page 628 I apologize to the family of Pat Conroy I [...]

In true Pat Conroy style, I was longing to visit Rome and the Charleston area again Just wanted to get on a plane and toss a coin between the two and tell the pilot, let s go to.Pat Conroy is a master storyteller and has you loving all the characters for different reasons I laughed, cried and sometimes both at the same time A must read for anyone No wonder so many of his books have been made into movies
