"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)
loved it the story and reading where so engaging I could listen to it for hours and not know where the time went.
The rich writing in this book puts you smack in the middle of Savannah... You feel as though you are somehow woven into the story and witnessing it firsthand.
Have wanted to read this for a very long time. Took the opportunity of a trip to Savannah to do so. It helped create atmosphere for my sightseeing, especially being based loosely? on facts. It should be required reading for tourists heading to this old southern town
All of the characters in this story are real except the author's character.
Very well written and easy to put myself with all the players. Some really felt like family.
I had to "read" it in one day and I will re-read it again
Was VERY well read!
Why on earth did I wait so long to read this? And why have I never been to Savannah? In the south we do love our crazy and there was plenty of it in this book. The best part is it's all true.
Jeff did a great job of narrating. His voices were perfect for each character and helped bring them to life even more than just reading the book would have done.
I have not read the print version. I did like the story and the narration of it. It dragged to me at times but was good
Drama in the south is EVERYONES friend
I know this is considered a classic and was adapted to screen, I was not on the edge of my seat like I had hoped.......but it was a good solid story.
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!
