I was late getting on the band wagon with this one, but am very glad that I finally did. I tend to shy away from books (and movies) that get this much press so early. Berendt tells the real story of a murder in Savannah very much like a story. This is not the dry, recitation, that seems to appear so often in a work of nonfiction. Savannah, a beautiful city off the beaten path, provides the backdrop for a tapestry of well-rounded, eccentric characters that call it home. It's obvious that the natives took Berendt into their confidence and made him one of their own.
If you like character driven stories, you'll love Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. If you don't think you like character driven stories, but want a taste, you'll love Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
