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 fun guide to things to see in Georgia! What a great little book to keep for learning more about the humorous side of history in Georgia and some of the characters and events that draw our interest!

  • I haven't gotten very far into the book, but so far I am enjoying it a lot, Quirky bits of history about Georgia that is fun and fascinating to read. I expect I will get some ideas for some day trips to take.

  • Returned this book, was not what it seemed by the description. No real odd or off track things to see by this book. Things that you probably already seen.

  • Loved it.

  • I ve lived in Georgia almost ten years and learned so much from this book.. They need to update yearly though..highly recommend.

  • I've probably read twenty books in the "Weird Georgia" genre. They are all more or less the same: collections of odd people, places, and historical events from Georgia's past. A little Civil War, some ghost stories, some historical markers, some birthplaces of famous people. Half for tourists on the road, half armchair traveler's guide.

    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."
