I would not read another book by this author.
The book held my interest but it didn't have too much of a story and I prefer books that move faster.
He was great
I was visiting Savannah anyway and that's why I read the book.
The narrator did an impressive of capturing the southern accent.
I haven't read much of true crime, so I'm not coming up with anything. Though I'm told it's loosely based on facts.
All the characters!
I wouldn't. That title is perfect.
I seen the movie. I really did not know that there was a book. So, I typed it in and there it was. I downloaded it immediately. Love the book so I down loaded the next book, That he wrote. Starting it tomorrow.
I love this book, especially in audio. I can visualize everything that is being read about. Growing up in Louisiana, I can totally relate to most of this true story, after all, my mom was a member of 2 garden clubs!
This was book was incredible to listen too. Definately makes me want to visit Savannah. Jeff Woodman, the narrator did an incredible job.
A wonderfully crafted novel, with great characters and a beautifully interwoven plot. Plenty of humor to spice it up as well! A great read for anyone, but it does have some objectionable content, so this is not really one for the kids.
The writing is well done and the characters are interesting...BUT, something was definitely missing.
The first three plus hours (a good 25% of the book
The vignettes ARE interesting, etc. ...it just felt like eating popcorn. Going nowhere fast with a main character who didn't really seem to exist. At least, that was the first three+ hours ...and I decided not to stick around for the "fascinating" part to happen. Argh. I really hate giving up on a book. Especially when it is well written. It's sad, but the vignetted characters had more personality (in the part I 'read') than the main character. Sheesh.
gives a good feel for what Savannah may be like, but very laboriously, I kept feeling "what is the plot" had a hard time staying with this book.
Having read the book years ago, I thought I would enjoy having it on audiobook. It was great. The narrator was very good and easy in which to listen.
Whether you have read the book or not, this is a great true story with so many twists and turns, it could be fiction.
This book reminds me of those big fat flies that
come into the house in summer and just fly in circles leaving only ocassionally to bash into a wall.
Very disappinted (well so far)
It just goes on and on and on and on with some
moderately intersting characters, and then nothing happens and on on and on and on and nothing happens.
By the time I got to the "drag queen" and heard "two tears in a bucket.." for the 25th time, I said "oh just shut up" out loud and turned off the book.
Nothing against Drag queens in the least, but Drag queen slang alone is not enough to make an hour (or more) of the book interesting; at that point even if there was some actual content regarding this character, I couldn't have cared less, I'd heard enough.
