A novel you will never forget...

This    powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of    four cadets who have become bloodbrothers. Together    they will encounter the hell of hazing and 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, who falls    in love with a whimsical beauty... and who    undergoes a transition more remarkable then he ever    imagined possible.

Synopsis:

Four cadets confront the passage into manhood at an arrogant and proud military institution.

A fantastic read. Conroy spins a tale filled with intrigue and well fleshed out characters. The city of Charleston becomes a character in itself. Couldn't put this book down and have read multiple times. An excellent introduction to the style of Pat Conroy's writing in which he has a poetic way with words.
