Críticas:

""The Death of Santini" instantly reminded me of the decadent pleasures of [Conroy's] language, of his promiscuous gift for metaphor and of his ability, in the finest passages of his fiction, to make the love, hurt or terror a protagonist feels seem to be the only emotion the world could possibly have room for, the rightful center of the trembling universe....Conroy's conviction pulls you fleetly through the book, as does the potency of his bond with his family, no matter their sins, their discord, their shortcomings." --Frank Bruni, "The New York Times Book Review"
"In several of his 12 previous books, bestseller Conroy mined his brutal South Carolina childhood--most directly in the book that became a 1979 hit movie, "The Great Santini," about a violent fighter pilot and his defiant son. In this memoir, the 68-year-old sheds the fictional veil, taking 'one more night flight into the immortal darkness to study that house of pain a final time.' The result is a painful, lyrical, addictive read that his fans won't want to miss." --"People," 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
"Despite the inherently bleak nature of so much of this material, Conroy has fashioned a memoir that is vital, large-hearted and often raucously funny. The result is an act of hard-won forgiveness, a deeply considered meditation on the impossibly complex nature of families and a valuable contribution to the literature of fathers and sons." --"The Washington Post""
"
"Conroy remains a brilliant storyteller, a master of sarcasm, and a hallucinatory stylist whose obsession with the impress of the past on the present binds him to Southern literary tradition." --"The Boston Globe"
"Conroy has the reflective ability that comes only with age. He has a deeper understanding of his father and the havoc he brought to his family....But against the backdrop of ugliness and pain, Conroy also describes a certain kind of love, even forgiveness." --Associated Press

Pat Conroy’s great success as a writer has always been intimately linked with the exploration of his family history. As the oldest of seven children who were dragged from military base to military base across the South, Pat bore witness to the often cruel and violent behavior of his father, Marine Corps fighter pilot Donald Patrick Conroy. While the publication of The Great Santini brought Pat much acclaim, the rift it caused brought even more attention, fracturing an already battered family. But as Pat tenderly chronicles here, even the oldest of wounds can heal. In the final years of Don Conroy’s life, the Santini unexpectedly refocused his ire to defend his son’s honor.
 
The Death of Santini is a heart-wrenching act of reckoning whose ultimate conclusion is that love can soften even the meanest of men, lending significance to the oft-quoted line from Pat’s novel The Prince of Tides: “In families there are no crimes beyond forgiveness.”
