i loved this book, and the movie too
This book has everything one wants in a good read: A mystery, a terrific and unique geographical place, amazing and eccentric characters and a very well written story told by an excellent narrator and observer. Plus it is based on real events which if this were fiction--would seem unbelievable.The movie is a pale echo so do read the book and only see the movie for Lady Chablis's appearance.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a splendid book! It embodies the richness of southern living with its excesses and superstitions, its "good ole boyness", the heat, the humidity, and the spookiness of the graveyard. It's not, however, a scary story or a horror book, it is a finely written, well plotted look at the old southern traditions from the eyes of a northeastern stranger to southern ways.
This book is a great Murder mystery in the same themes as Sherlock Holmes Mysteries.Just when you think you have it fiqured out- you don't!The end will come as a great surprise!I loved it. Recommend to mystery lovers everywhere.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.
