Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop CafeE tale she tells is also of two women of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth who back in the thirties ran a little place in. This book is fluffy How fluffyIt is as fluffy as floating on cloud while lying on a mattress stuffed with kittens and simultaneously wearing a pink angora jumper and a candy floss hat This is the sort of book I enjoy when my brain decides to take a day off But it is lovely and it is likely that even the most po faced cynics me will be drawn into the warm doughy bosom of this story of love friendship and adversity in 1930s Alabama The history of Whistlestop along with helpful recipe appendices allowing the transposition British readers from the grim north to the Deep South is relayed to the beleaguered Evelyn by old Mrs Threadgoode Aside from the odd murder Whistle Stop is populated by a kind of chocolate box perfection It's a modest but model community with great food the kindness of neighbours life long friendships A kind of Tom SawyerHuck Finn wholesomeness oozes from between each page Living in Toxteth I find it hard to imagine this kind of idealised community of hot buttered biscuit loveliness but it was nice to at least try until the piercing wail of a police siren broke the illusion

Reading this book was like waking up on a spring morning after a long dreary winter to the sound of the dawn chorus after a reading slump of a few weeks I really was delighted when this novel came up as a book club read having read it in 2010 and loved the book I knew enough time had lapsed for me to forget the details of the story but not the wonderful charactersCharming witty thought proving and endering are all words that come to mind on finishing this novel A lovely page turner to loose yourself in and characters that will stay with you long after you finish the novel The day Idgie Threadgoode and Ruth Jamison opened the Whistle Stop Cafe the town took a turn for the better It was the Depression and that cafe was a home from home for many of us You could get eggs grits bacon ham coffee and a smile for 25 cents Ruth was just the sweetest girl you ever met And Idgie She was a character all right You never saw anyone so headstrong But how anybody could have thought she murdered that man is beyond me loved this book had seen the film years ago and did not really think much of it but the book really blew me away for me it was the witt and the rich characters Such an easy read full of tall tales and fun and yet sad in many parts I really enjoyed this novelI loved the southern charm in this novel that weaves together the past and present through the friendship between Evelyn Crouch a middle aged housewife and Ninny Threadgoode and eatery woman who lives in a nursing home I loved the references to food and receipes in the novel and came away really wanting to try some of them Terrific character development makes this one a memorable read and I am so glad this is the book that gave me the five star read I was craving If you haven't read this one purchase a copy and give yourself a treat

It's first the story of two women in the 1980s of gray headed Mrs Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn who is in the sad slump of middle age Th. Over the course of this year I have branched out in my reading choices I have discovered multiple genres that I previously had not read one of which being southern literature It is in this regard that I found the writing of Fannie Flagg Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe invites the reader to small town Alabama Through Flagg's southern charm you feel as though you are a part of the town and its cast of characters In this light that I rate this gem of a book 45 stars Fried Green Tomatoes is a movie starring Jessica Tandy as Ninny Threadgoode and Kathy Bates as Evelyn Couch although I have never been privileged to view the film; thus the book is new material for me Evelyn Couch is a middle aged empty nester who accompanies her husband Ed to visit his mother at a nursing home Evelyn having no patience for these visits instead strikes up a conversation with Mrs Threadgoode which develops over the course of the book into an intimate friendship like that of a mother and daughter I enjoy hearing older people reminisce about their lives so Mrs Threadgoode instantly became a charming character for me and I like Evelyn was happy to enter into her world Whistle Stop Alabama is an almost defunct small town on the outskirts of Birmingham Mrs Threadgoode inherently knowing that she is enjoying the twilight of her life takes Evelyn back to depression era Whistle Stop She regales Evelyn with tales of her family the Threadgoodes and their colored friends the Peaveys In a time where people were struggling to make ends meet the citizens of Whistle Stop appeared to enjoy life to the fullest with the cafe being the center of their world Whites blacks and people of all walks of life lived in relative harmony epitomized by Idgie Threadgoode and her Dill Pickle Club who went off on one daring adventure after another In no case was there a mention of poverty and Evelyn is charmed by Mrs Threadgoode's stories Meanwhile in present day Mrs Threadgoode urges Evelyn to live her life to the fullest Just because she has entered middle age does not mean that her life is over Written during the 1980s era of the working woman Evelyn is coached on to get a new lease on life a new career and enjoy the second half of her time on this earth In an interview following the novel Fannie Flagg points out that she prefers older characters because they have many layers to their lives and much advice to offer to younger generations It is in this mind set that she made Mrs Threadgoode the central point of her novel Flagg touched on non traditional families the 1930s modern woman racism and the lack thereof all in one town Like Evelyn I was drawn in by the characters and the town of Whistle Stop and finished the novel over the course of one day because I could not get enough of Mrs Threadgoode's stories Whistle Stop is a small town whose people make up the fabric of this country and the Threadgoodes and their descendants are cogs who embody southern life I enjoyed my trip through Whistle Town and am looking forward to reading of Fannie Flagg's southern novels
