Conroy's early autobiography
Conroy describes and quotes the students from Yamacraw Island in such an amusing and endearing way that it's hard not to fall in love with them. Dan John Miller, who did such an amazing job narrating Lords of Discipline, once again brings each characther to life with his superb narration. I found this book fascinating as it describes Conroy's early life as a teacher and touches on many of the stories that he used in later novels. He also describes some real life characters (including himself) who are recognizable from his other books.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Water Is Wide to be better than the print version?
I have only listened but I have to say, the narrator really made this book fun!
What did you like best about this story?
What does Dan John Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
As I said above, he really made the book fun! His interpretation of the kids was fabulous!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I am a huge Pat Conroy fan - this is by far by fave!
