READ KINDLE ë Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe ⚩ It s first the story of two women in the s, 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 This one maked and breaked my heart a hundred times.Possibly perfect. This is a very good book Solid hardback I have about 80 copies in the bookshop 12 of them are supporting the little fridge up to a reasonable height Two of them are under the cash desk which otherwise would be a bit wobbly Another 8 in two s are against the ends of the four shelves under the galavanise bit of roof where it leaks when it rains hard not now, post Irma I need a new roof as I have two huge holes in it, so I moved the books Sometimes prior to the hurricanes, when it rained This is a very good book Solid hardback I have about 80 copies in the bookshop 12 of them are supporting the

they didn t dry out they got mouldy so I replaced them with someI ve got lots to spare I have to be honest though, I ve never even sold a single copy.You might wonder why I would buy 80 copies of a book that doesn t sell I didn t I acquired them through no fault of my own What happened was the book was remaindered in huge quantities and I buy from this particular remainder house Some while back I d ordered about 8 boxes of books but 10 came Two of them were full of Fried Green Tomatoes I immediately got on to the company who said yes they knew of the situation and would refund my shipping costs and the debits on my account What had happened was that they let one of their members of staff go customer service, she was a bit prickly at best and teeth achingly rude at other times They didn t exactly fire her they just didn t renew her contract So to get her revenge in the time left to her with the company she distributed this and other titles all hardback to international customers knowing she would have left before we got the books and the shit hit the fan.Cost the company quite a lot of money, but really, you have to give the girl at least 3 stars for creativity 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 4.5 stars Fried Gree 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 4.5 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 readingof Fannie Flagg s
