Just finished reading Pat Conroy’s, The Prince of Tides – I seem to have been reading this forever but the truth is that I didn’t get too much reading time on it. I really enjoyed it although it did seem to finish rather quickly, almost as if the pacing of the book was wrong. Also the problem I mentioned when I first started reading the book, prevailed throughout. The character Tom Wingo knows too much about food and accesories , blenders , ninja blender recipes , etc. whenever it gets talked about it seems out of character. This I feel is a generic problem for Conroy who obviously loves food and seems to give that trait to all his lead characters. I’d now like to watch the film to see how well they did adapting the material.
