    Het Literaire Aardappelschiltaart Genootschap van Guernsey door Mary Ann Shaffer (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories are bittersweet - tales of hardship, prejudice and hope although they are set in very different places and very different times. Both are heartwarming, but best of all, both stories also had me laughing uproariously at one point or other. Fried Green Tomatoes jumps around but describes life, race relations and murder in a small Southern town during the Great Depression. Shaffer's novel deals with the occupation (and its aftermath) of the small Channel Island of Guernsey during WWII.… (meer)

I so loved this book just as much as the movie. I find that Fannie Flagg’s books can be both sweet and tart. The basic story is about two ladies meeting at a care home and the stories they tell each other about their lives in Alabama during their visits. There are so many characters we get to know and who bring to the story love, friendship and last but not least the delicious food. ( )

I had really loved this movie when I was younger, so much so that I wonder if I knew it was based on a book at the time, or it seems like I would have read this long ago. A few years ago I picked this copy up at a garage sale, and then when the Book Riot podcast said they were going to review this book/movie for Book Nerd movie hour, I knew it was time to pick it up.

This was one of those ideal book/movie experiences where I remembered just enough detail from the movie to have faces/voices to imagine for most of the characters, but the book fleshed out so much from the movie to make it its own experience.

The way this book talks about race sometimes makes it feel of its time, but in a way that also feels like it was probably before its time, then, if that makes any sense. Like, it would get some friction if it came out today, but it also seems remarkably honest? forthright? in its portrayal of a middle aged white woman thinking about sex and race mostly on her own in the pre-internet era.

I don't know. I loved it. So glad I got around to this one. ( )

Wonderful book. Interesting. Grips you from the 1st page and never let’s go. Fannie Flagg is a wonderful author and narrator. ( )

After reading Fried Green Tomatoes you will swear you just made a whole bunch of new and memorable friends. The characters will stay with you long after the last page. At the heart of Fried Green Tomatoes is the story of a friendship between two women. Mrs. Threadgoode, living out her old age in a nursing home, befriends Evelyn who is only there to visit her ailing mother. Held captive by the incessant chatter of Mrs. Threadgoode, middle aged and weary Evelyn is introduced to 1930s Whistle Stop, Alabama and its ecclectic community. The more Mrs. Threadgoode talks, the more Evelyn wants to know what happened next. She begins to visit more and more, bringing gifts each time. Between the present day nursing home and the flashbacks is Dot Weems and her weekly "Whistle Stop Bulletin" full of town gossip and humor. Despite its feel good narrative, startling examples of bigotry and violence are a reality. The very real thorns among the roses. ( )

i read this in high school, and i don't think if i read it now it would have the same effect on me. still, i'm giving it four stars for the book it was then, not the book it may be now. ( )

I may be sitting here at the Rose Terrace Nursing Home,
but in my mind I'm over at the Whistle Stop Cafe having
a plate of fried green tomatoes.

The Whistle Stop Cafe opened up last week, right next door to me at the post office, and owners Idgie Threadgoode and Ruth Jamieson said business has been good ever since.

He wanted to get out of Chicago; the wind that whipped around the buildings was so cold that it sometimes brought a tear to a man's eye.
But who could have known that all the shiny shoes and flashy three-piece suits could never cover up the bitterness that had been growing in his heart all these years...
His main problem in life, at the moment, was that he loved too well and not too wisely.
