This powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of four cadets who have become blood brothers. Together they will encounter the hell of the rabid, raunchy, and dangerously secretive atmosphere of an arrogant and proud military institute. They will experience the violence, the passion, the rage, the friendship, the loyalty, the betrayal. Together, they will brace themselves for the brutal transition to manhood—and one will not survive.

With all the dramatic brilliance he brought to The Great Santini, Pat Conroy sweeps you into the turbulent world of these four friends—and draws you deep into the heart of his rebellious hero, Will McLean. An outsider forging his personal code of honor, he falls in love with a whimsical beauty—and undergoes a transition more remarkable then he ever imagined possible.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kathleen Nowak | 2/11/2014

    " This book is excellent because it keeps you emotionally involved with the constant contrast between good and evil within each character. I have no doubt this is based on the truth of military academy harassment and hazing of the time and applaud Conroy's imagination as he moves beyond what could actually happen. The writing is intense and draws you in completely. "

    " I read this book over and over when in high school. Still love it in so many ways. "

    " I read Pat Conroy for an 11th grade paper. I think I was a bit too young and innocent to be reading his works but by the time I realized it I didn't have time to find a new author. Let's just say this was "educating" for a naive young woman. "

    " My favorite of Conroy's. Four friends trying to make it through at The Citadel. It is a page-turner. "
