By Shalolo LoveYou
It was such an amazing book. I love it and recommend it to anyone who likes mystery
Maybe I just don't get it...
This is a nice enough, tongue in cheek account of savannah and her special weird characters that is somewhat entertaining.
But I really fail to see the great literary acclaim this book earned - it is in the end a disjointed, jumbled up book consisting of separate stories thrown together and held loosely together by the murder trial.
Love it !!!!!
I was so into this book at I felt like I knew the people of Savannah and the pride of a city that will not change. I can't wait till the day I get to go and visit it myself... After reading this book I feel I have already been there....
Much more than the movie
Even if you saw the movie, which was very nice, you won't be disappointed to read this book. It has a ton of wonderful information on Savvanah and the Savvanahians, so much history and background included. I enjoyed every page of it.

This is one of the most delicious romps I've read in a very long time. I loved the movie, however, the book is impossible to put down. It has everything and then some - giving credence to the adage that truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction. I wish I'd read it years ago!
If you have not had the chance to read this book...read it now. Berendt reminds me of Carson McCullers and Truman Capote at their Southern best.
