I've tried his books other than TPofT, which is by far the best IMP. He does not have the voice for audio. Doubt I finished it.

What a great book for people who love reading books to read! Conroy shares multiple titles that have been his favorites and tells about the reading influences in his life including first and foremost, his mother, and a very special high school teacher and life-long friend.

Pat Conroy's gruff voice takes some getting used to but it soon grew on me and I enjoyed the audiobook. His Gone with the Wind chapter ... so interesting! ... and the chapter on his beloved English teacher was a favorite part. The librarian essay was not at all what I expected! This book, though terribly sad in parts, is a wonderful tribute to the joy and power of reading. The last two chapters would especially inspire writers-to-be.
