Journal Entry 1 by wingSqueakyChuwing from Rockville, Maryland USA on Sunday, November 04, 2018
I selected this book yesterday from the Little Free Library #31328 in Sykesville, Maryland after a delightful chat with its steward. Both she and I have read this book and consider Pat Conroy to have been an exceptional author. We both highly recommend this book!

Journal Entry 2 by wingSqueakyChuwing at Rockville, Maryland USA on Sunday, November 04, 2018
I read this book in 1998. This is what I wrote after I read it...

This is a novel relating the harsh conditions a cadet must endure if he is to graduate from a military academy. The story is of one cadet who endures four grueling years at a military academy and develops a decidedly anti-military stance. It is a wonderful novel of camaraderie and friendship. However, it is also a testimony to man's inhumanity to man. I guess that is what the military stands for if one is to learn to kill in defense of one's country. A very unsettling novel, it left me glad that I personally never had to endure an environment such as the one Conroy describes.

I'm releasing this book for the following challenge:

***The 2018 E-less Challenge hosted by motherof11.
