Nov 12, Brina rated it really liked it Shelves: Over the course of this year I have branched out in my reading choices. I have discovered multiple genres that I previously Troutville girl looking for help not read, one of which being southern literature. It is in this regard that I found the writing of Fannie Flagg. 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. Fried Gree Over the course of this year I have branched out in my reading choices. 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 Troutville girl looking for help his mother at a nursing home.
Evelyn having no patience for Female looking for couple swingers Grenada visits instead strikes up a conversation with Mrs Threadgoode, which develops over the course of the book into an intimate friendship like Troutville girl looking for help 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 Troutville girl looking for help that she is enjoying the twilight of her life, takes Evelyn back to depression era Classified ads in redvers 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.

In Adult seeking nsa Smoaks South Carolina case was there a mention of poverty, and Evelyn is charmed by Mrs Threadgoode's stories.

It is in this mind set that she made Mrs Threadgoode the central point of her novel. Flagg touched on non traditional families, the s 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.

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.

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.

She was one of my favorites on the show, but had no idea, back then, what her claim to fame was. Years later, when the movie version of this book was released, I was surprised to learn that Fannie Flagg wrote the book the movie was based on.
I bought the book soon after seeing the movie. I was struck by how detailed the story was, how some things were glossed over in the movie version, and how others were curiously more pronounced in the book than on the movie Troutville girl looking for help, while at other times, I thought the movie version might have brought the scene to life a little better.
But the other day, while searching for an audio book at the library, I discovered this story was available in audiobook format, and not only that, it was narrated by Fannie Flagg. The ending here is much more poignant and still gave me a little chill. View all 37 comments. Nov 15, Katie rated it really liked it.

What are its qualities? First of all, this is a very important social document of life in the south of the United States Alabamain the twentieth century. It is also inspirational, poignant, touching, funny, and has black humour: On another occasion, there's a meal with unknown ingredients in it, and the sauce especially is thoroughly enjoyed by all.
All I can say is that it would have been evidence. I find it quite remarkable how the author handled the time periods between the two main starting dates: The clever way in which the layers of all the emotions are broken down just never ceased to surprise me throughout.
The book concerns four women: She gives regular local news throughout most of the book via this bulletin. My favourite character was Idgie christened Imogen but this was changed by her much loved brother Buddy.

Her tall stories Fuck local Bloomington mature incredible a remarkable one about a pond that miraculously disappearsher remarkable loyalty to those she loves, such as her family, Ruth, employees, friends, regardless of whether they are black or white.
Her self-effacing manner when she tries to explain to one of them that she would love to feed them in the cafe but there were people in Whistle Stop who would soon put her out of busines.

Several chapters Tfoutville narrated by Ninny, while others are extracts from various periodicals the main one being "The Weems Weekly" of Whistle Stop edited by Dot Weems and Troutville girl looking for help others, straightforward third person narrative but with focus on different characters.
It is really like listening to the reminiscences of an old woman who is pretty far gone in years, but whose mind is still remarkably sharp lpoking for the chronology of events.

The book featured many more characters and tragedies!
