Review: The Great Santini

The Great Santini
The Great Santini by Pat Conroy
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

A fantastic, yet sad book about a young man growing up in a military family with a very strict Marine father. Plot focuses on the young man’s coming of age, his struggle to come out of his father’s shadow and become his own person. I definitely enjoyed the author’s writing style, it’s very descriptive and very real. After reading this book, I learned that the author draws on his own experiences in this book. I’m definitely planning to read more of this author’s works.
