Year 6, Book 32

32. The Boo by Pat Conroy
This is Pat Conroy’s first book, which I just recently got as an e-galley from NetGalley. It tells the story of the one of The Citadel’s Commandants affectionately known as The Boo. There is very little narrative in this book. It is mostly telling specific stories about The Boo and specific cadets. It might be of interest to people who attended The Citadel and perhaps some people involved with the military at large, but I found it pretty boring and found myself skipping long passages of it. It’s definitely something written for a very specific audience, which Conroy often points out in the book. So if you have a connection to The Citadel you perhaps might want to read it, otherwise I wouldn’t bother. I give it a 3 out of 10.
