it was ok
Recommended for: people who really really love Savannah
Read in October, 2007

A mostly true story, John Berendt writes about Savannah with an obvious and infectious love. The beginning section where he introduces many of the characters gets a little tedious with an abundance of people that are there to add spice but not substance. The second half drags with the monotony of four murder trials. Overall, it was a good read, but too much filler made you long for action. Take away this charming and mysterious old city, you're left with not much.

This isn't a film review, but Kevin Spacey and Jude Law were pitch perfect in the movie, as was The Lady Chablis (as well she should be - as she played by herself).

As a side note, the title is one of my favorites of all time.
