The definitive collection of Georgia's odd, wacky, and most offbeat people, places, and things, for Georgia residents and anyone else who enjoys local humor and trivia with a twist.
A lot of the stories in this book are found in other books as well, but I think "Georgia Curiosities" does a very good job collecting a large representative sample of diverse stories and places to visit. Most of the highlights from other similar books are present here, and I was surprised that "Georgia Curiosities" actually had a few unique stories and places to share. It was worth reading just for its dozen or so new curiosities.
The writing is, like all book in the genre, adequate. Sometimes, it comes across as too glib or trying too hard to be funny or clever. But it doesn't get in the way of the stories or locations.
If you're only going to read one book in the genre, you could do worse than "Georgia Curiosities."
