"Uproarious...a rich, irresistible mix of snobbery, mayhem, sex, mind-boggling parochialism, and mildewed magnolias....A glorious vanity fair of human folly." (The Boston Globe)
I LOVE THIS BOOK!
I am a huge fan of Savannah and have visited there several times. This book completely embodies the charm, sweetness, and spice that pervades Savannah culture!
The narration is excellent. The characters are thoughtfully developed, endearing, and well-rounded and the story is incredibly engaging.
I was so sad when this title ended, I immediately went and watched the movie! I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of period fiction, Southern culture, mystery, or just good books!
Jeff Woodman's voice was upbeat and entertaining. Never had me batting my eyes to try and keep them open. You can easily distinguish between which characters he was speaking as.
I enjoyed this book from start to finish! The people described are so quirky and enjoyable. Ever one needs a Minerva in their life!
Interested in True Crime mostly, however, I have been known to vary with other true stories (i.e. Hellhound) & an occasional fiction piece
Loved it! Not my normal read, however heard about it in the past & was intrigued. So glad I made this choice. Was always eager to hear the next chapter, disappointed it had to end. The narrator was superb!! I prefer true crime but this author/narrator combo would get my attention again!
I'm only sorry I had not read this book sooner. Very well written, funny, and incredibly entertaining. From the very begging the narrator takes you in to the plot and until the end keeps you captivated. Will be booking my next trip to Savannah for sure!
Many things about the history of Savannah and it's social graces were unknown to me until I listened to Jeff Woodman narrate these wonderfully depicted scenes of characters playing out daily (or should I say nightly) life of Savannah's intermingling of classes. The story was intertwined with mystery, murder, and power. The doors kept opening to reveal skeletons of which no character was exempt. Good listen.
This was just okay. I did not find myself drawn in by the pilot or the characters. The narrator was fairly good, which made it easier to listen to. I am finding myself frustrated with audibles recommendation system.
