Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

I’ve been knocking out audiobooks like mad as I’m working on our basement bathroom project. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil was a book that I wanted to read for quite awhile. A non-fiction account set in Savannah, Georgia that includes memorable characters, beautiful southern landscape, and… Murder! This book was released in 1994 and stayed on the NYT bestseller list for 216 weeks (4 YEARS!)


I liked the details and history of Savannah, I enjoyed hearing the stories of some of the people that John Berendt lived and worked with. I also liked the intriguing story of murder and a cover up, but particularly the fact that the murder triad were each somewhat condensed in the account.


Have you ever visited Savannah? What did you think? Worth a visit?

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
