An old comfortable favorite....and better than the movie. Headed out in a bookbox.

Fantastic book! Once I´ve started I couldn´t stop reading and finished it in only 2 nights.
It is much better than the movie, although while reading I pictured the characters from the movie - so this was even funnier and I just sat in my armchair sniggering and laughing all the way through.

I finished it today. It is a page-turning book.The narrative has beautifully mixed stories and lives of families, all of them connected with that famous Whistle Stop Caffee- a place of joy, good humour, generosity and love. It has the power of making people`s lives better, even through many years, as it happens with Evelyn Couch.I liked that style of mixing past and present, jumping through years, going back to Whistle Stop Caffee, then coming again to the Nursery home. I was especially charmed by Idgie and her friendship with Ruth.I liked very much the way Idgie dealt with things, her straitghforwardness and sincerity. I liked the simple wisdom in Ninny`s words.She is so good to Evelyn, and helps her a lot to go through a difficult part of her life.

In one word,the book is very good. I enjoyed it so much, and I am glad it is going to find a new home so quickly. I`m mailing it next week to purple-pixie who wants to read it.

I loved this book, I have never seen the movie, so I came to the book with no preconceptions. A real feel-good story.
