The characters in this book reminds me so much of Beach Music. Leo or the Toad as Jack McCall, Molly as Ledare, Jordan as Niles, Mike as Shebah etc… It was a bit depressing all through out. I was emotionally exhausted after reading it. Unlike Beach Music, it does not have that very happy ending for our dear protagonist Leo. The lines are as always genius and you’d really be rooting for Leo. The twists were good although I felt that some of it were told in a rush. I love Pat Conroy’s writing for they take me to places and situation that I would open my eyes in amazement and make me think that life really is unpredictable as it happen but at the end of the day – we’ve only got one dear life to hold on to. South Of Broad makes me want to visit South Carolina someday!
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
