Weekly Historical Book Review:

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt

Being the type of person who reads non-fiction books for fun, it pains me to say this but Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is an amazing book in that it is a historical book about the murder of Danny Lewis Hansford while being so engrossing that it reads like a fictional story. Not that I would ever imply that non-fiction books aren’t interesting reads but the inclusion of so many facts often slows down the flow of the book but this is more typically classified as a ‘non-fiction novel’ and, while it does keep the central facts straight, the timeline of events is rearranged in order to make for smoother reading.  Typically, I’m very much against altering historical facts and sequences of events in a book which is marketed as a non-fiction offering.  However, in this particular occurrence, it seems to work to the book’s benefit by telling the story in a style which is more easily consumed while keeping the central aspects of the true event in place. Overall, it is an excellent and very interesting read that really captures the feeling of Savanna, Georgia and, despite being about a murder, kind of makes you want to go there…
