Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,
early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense?
For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated
throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and
shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful,
and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel,
and yet it is a work of nonfiction,. Berendt skillfully
interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life
in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable
twists and turns of a landmark murder case.
I loved this book. It was one of those books you just couldn't put down. I always wanted to know what was going to happen next. there was so much excitement and mystery going on. the book was 100 times better than the movie. I read the book faster then i saw the movie (it took me almost a week to watch the movie because my attention span was so short).

It's been a long time I had so much fun reading a book, I just simply couldn't put it down. I found it exciting, charming, loved the way Berendt describes Savannah, you really get the urge to go and see it for yourself. :-) I can honestly recommend it to everybody!
