I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
As much as I loved this book - and I did - I am relieved to finally be finished with it. I loved every word of it, but I swear it was magically adding pages at the back as I was reading it.
Having seen the movie years ago, I was surprised at how much of this book had little or nothing to do with Jim Williams. I think it made the book that much more enjoyable; Mr. Berendt was masterful at making me feel like I was in the heart of Savannah. I heard their voices and I was in their homes and at their parties.
For a true taste of Southern USA, the kind that has become a rarity as time moves on, I don't think you can go wrong with this book. I'll be re-watching the movie soon too; Kevin Spacey truly is the perfect Jim Williams.
