really liked it

I bought this book from the Salvation Army because I had seen the movie, couldn't remember it, but did remember that John Cusack was in it. And if he was in it, it's got to be quality, right?

Anyway, upon reading, it was. A really interesting and fun portrayal of Savannah, I'm sure fact and fiction crossed back and forth with each other, but whatever the case, the writing was poetic when it needed to be, and straight-forward when it needed to be, creating a book that was a pleasure to read and difficult to put down.

Also, it made me wish I was part of a family of Southern Aristocracy so I could look down on other people more. As it is, I can only look down on people who smell worse than me. And with all the traveling I've been doing recently, that's not many people.
