    Unnecessarily mean

    I LOVE Pat Conroy and I love his books. He is without question my favourite author. This book I find, is surprisingly disappointing. After such a hiatus, such anticipation my opinion is that, at his age there should have been more maturity with dealing with the issue of his sister Carole. Many times in the book Pat will not directly insult Carole but his writing clearly portrays him setting up others to insult her. Almost using them as a pawn to quote them insulting her. Yes Pat lays himself down as a sacrifice at times being bluntly honest with his mistakes referencing times he was mean to her and others. But this book has a feeling entirely where he used private conversations with people for the purpose of insulting his sister. It's was like he was saying, see look, I'm not the only one which thinks she's a psycho crazy bitch, our dad thinks so too. (Or whoever he referenced for the purpose of the insult) It's disappointing because it is not only childish but why as a grown man make such an effort to hurt someone who may or may not be completely well? It felt I contributed to it as an accomplice and I didn't enjoy that. I felt so personally for the book, that's just happens to be where it carried me. I just know this. I would never create such an iconic book, that has such anticipation by family and fans alike and then to tarnish son many pages with those striking insults. Honesty is one thing, and trust me I'm a fan. But this was unnecessarily mean
