    Pros: Great Characters, Conroy's descriptions, Plot, Pacing
    Cons: None

    Summary: Pat Conroy is a Citadel graduate, and I was reading about, how "The Lords of Discipline" angered this institution. While I was familiar with Mr. Conroy's works, and have read quite a few, this bit of information was a "carrot" of ... read more

    Pros: It's Conroy.
    Cons: Some parts are depressing.

    Summary: When I was a kid, I used to babysit the neighbour kids, but there was one family I always liked to sit for more than the other.  This family had a BETA version of a VCR, which was something that NO ONE had back in 1981 or so.  They had all ... read more

    Pros: An extremely powerful, touching story of life at a military school
    Cons: a few boring, long-winded descriptions

    Summary: Pat Conroy's "Lords of Discipline" grew on me slowly. At first it was a bit thick to get through, but by the end I was ignoring everything in my life to read the powerful, painful ending. "Lords of Discipline" tells the story of Will McLean, a ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: setting and characterizations thoroughly drawn
    Cons: violence

    Summary: Like most of Pat Conroy's books, I couldn't put this down. A graduate of The Citadel, Conroy brings authenticity to his subject, along with his usual spellbinding Southern candor. I love the depth of his characters and his sense of humor. This book ... read more

  • An dark view into the life of a military acadamy

    Dec 1, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent story
    Cons: Slow beginning

    Summary: I must confess, I had never heard of Pat Conroy when my mother recommended the book to me. She was always reading books to "Further" the mind, instead of the mindless drivel that I was always reading. Consequently, she has her Masters in ... read more
