AMAZING!!!!!! This book rocked! I saw the movie a lot when I was younger, and the book is even better. Despite the book being harder to get into than the movie initially, the setup of all the characters alongside the history and visual recreation of Savannah in the 1980's is priceless. The characters are amazing and dynamic, and unlike in the movie, the book develops a side of them that makes the tension in the courtroom unfold better. After finishing the book, I was saddened that the movie didn't show more of the life of the victim, Danny, and didn't show more of the antics of Williams. An amazing book, I couldn't put it down during the second half. The book actually made me want to travel to Savannah at some point in my life.
