I love this book, but I love the audiobook even more. The narration was very entertaining.
Has always been a favorite book of mine, however this audio book recording has some serious flaws. There are odd gaps of silence in the middle of paragraphs, sometimes followed by very LOUD and long beep tone. Completely obnoxious.
Having just recently returned from our first trip to Savannah, this selection seemed the obvious choice for a first audiobooks pick. My introduction to the story was from the movie. While its was great fun to revisit the places we've now seen first hand, it was astounding to learn how much of the books' continuity failed to transition to the film. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a wonderful 'read' and a beautiful introduction to a truly enchanting place.
Book was excellent! I did not enjoy the loud screeching sound. However I believe these loud tones were inserted at the end of every disc intentionally to notify the listener that they need to insert the next disc and they just weren't edited out when it got converted to digital. Does not ruin the experience as I just learned to skip forward to get past it faster.
Very good book. Narrator talks too fast though. There are times every so often when squealing occurs. Will try another book before making a final decision.
I found the book to be fascinating and well written. Congrats to the author and the Savannah.
Very good book and the narrator was excellent. Only strange thing was some 1 minute gaps of silence followed by that sound when there's an emergency on your radio, weird!
This abridged version of the book seemed to leave out so many important aspects of the story. It really did not make any sense.
A must read for any southerner or transplant Yankee
Riveting... I have listened over and over again...
