Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil | John Berendt
Read John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil in Large Print.* All Random House Large Print editions are published in a 16-point typefaceShots 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.It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight.These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story is a sublime and seductive reading experience.Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city is certain to become a modern classic.From the Trade Paperback edition.

This was like watching a parade of entertainingly terrible people. Maybe "terrible" is a little strong. Endearingly unsympathetic might be better. It was also humorous at times, and really painted a beautiful picture of Savannah. Hard to believe it's nonfiction!

5*. Great book that I picked up in anticipation of my honeymoon in Savannah. Hurricane Dorian meant that wasn't to be but we will definitely be planning another trip. I thought this book was the true story of a murder but it was so much more - a look at some of the colorful characters living in Savannah.

I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end! The writing was impeccable and I just couldn't put it down. Now I have not yet seen the movie so this was fresh and brand new to me. Basically it was a cluster of stories centering around Savannah, GA. The writer meeting all the unique characters (Lady Chablis was my favorite) and the history of the city in detail. I love Savannah and this book just added my love for it even more. 5 stars.

Whimsical. Not so much true crime per say but the stories of the locals are so creative it just doesn‘t seem real.

Day 5 - #ElegantEvil #AugustABC

“Elegant and wicked…. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil might be the first true-crime book that makes the reader want to book a bed and breakfast for an extended weekend at the scene of the crime.” —The New York Times Book Review

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 haunted the city.

Eggs 🤗👏🏻🤗 I have not read the book but I saw the movie 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️
This wasn‘t really what I expected. I thought it would focus more on the murder than it actually did. I enjoyed the parts about the murder and trial and some of the parts that weren‘t directly related to that were entertaining/interesting. But I did find myself losing interest and skimming at times, and honestly, I can‘t really say I cared about any of the people in this book. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Good lord, yes. I *loved* this book. Crazy characters, beautiful Savannah, murder and mystery - and it‘s all (mostly) true. Midnight is a true page turner. But be warned.

The good:
Berendt draws the reader into the world of Savannah. You get to know these characters, the social scene, the veneer and the secrets. It‘s Bradbury-esquire in its review of the town, its citizens, and the pace of life.

The so-so:
It goes on for probably 50 or so pages too long. And after the murder, everything not related to it is a distraction. I wanted to find out the outcome of the case. Anything else was a delay, not charming.

lele1432 I need to re-read this. I loved getting emersed into Savannah, but I was much younger when I first read it. 7mo

I‘ve been neglecting #readingUSA2019 for a little while - too many other good books to read!

However this was a great book to read for my return back Stateside. I‘d read some reviews that derided the ‘magazine‘ style of writing in this book but I found it delightful. The author writes of a wide range of characters he met during his stay, all linked together by an alleged murder, and as a result the story doesn‘t pall at any point.

Perhaps I should preface this by saying, I LOVE Savannah. So just about any book set in Savannah is going to win my heart. However this true life memoir crime novel was crazy interesting my adoration aside. Written in a very magazine reporting style (as the author largely wrote for magazines and newspapers) it records his time and friendships with some Native Savannahians and a murder amidst them all. Not scary (in my opinion and I scare easily.)

JenReadsAlot I read this book which led to me visiting Savannah! 8mo

When one of my book clubs picked a book I read decades ago, and I just don‘t have time to reread the print version. I‘m listening to the (much abbreviated) abridged version. It‘s a Southern nonfiction break from my Southern fiction read. (Gone with the Wind—unabridged and nearly 50 hours long.)
