Review; Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
Description from Goodreads
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. The 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 Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.
My Thoughts On the Book
Personally, I found it a heartwarming book which included themes like friendship, love and race relations through the 20th century. I might admit though, that I sometimes got a little bit hungry while reading.
