Title: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Author: Fannie Flagg
Finished: May 27, 2009
The film Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my absolute favorites, so it’s not a surprise that the book has become a favorite as well.
It’s the story about four women from different times. Two are alive in flashbacks, one is hearing the story while suffering her own mid-life crisis, and the other is telling the story of Ruth and Idgie.
It’s a powerful book that lets your live the life and experiences of four vastly different characters. Each character goes through their own separate heartache and happiness, different from the others.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has seen the movie, especially because there are differences though not critical, or to anyone who loves a good book about friendship, because above all else that is exactly what this is about.
It might be one of my favorite books of the year so far.
