Show Me Five Meme: South of Broad by Pat Conroy

That's A Novel Idea has started a new MEME called Show Me Five Saturday. This meme will give each blogger an opportunity to give a brief description of a book they have read or reviewed during the week.It will work like this: Each Saturday You will post the answer to these questions. The number indicates the number of answers you will provide:

    1. Book you read and/or reviewed this week
    2. Words that describe the book
    3. Settings where it took place or characters you met
    4. Things you liked and/or disliked about it
    5. Stars or less for your rating?

Here's mine:

  • South of Broad by Pat Conroy
  • Southern, contemporary lit
  • South Carolina, Leo King; son of science teacher and school principal, Sheba and Trevor Poe; twins with troubled past and trouble in their future
  • I liked the beginning and setting of the book, did not like several of the characters especially the Poe twins, thought Leo King as narrator was unbelievable as youthful character, some of the friendships seemed unbelievable also.
  • 2.5 stars (mixed feelings on this one)


  1. I have this book to read and I hope I enjoy it!!! Show Me 5 is fun to read!!

  2. I have been seeing this book everywhere, but can't get myself interesed in it. After reading this not sure I feel bad about that!
