Fannie Flagg is wonderfully warm and funny, and this may be her warmest, funniest book.

I picked this up at the Evanston Meetup. Thanks for bringing it! I enjoyed this movie and am interested in reading the book.

Journal Entry 4 by nynjagrrrl from Elkhorn, Wisconsin USA on Wednesday, December 26, 2007
I loved this book! This is being added to the Can't Wait to Get to Heaven book ring by the same author. The movie was good but of course the book was even better. Idgie was such a funny character. Ninny Threadgoode was an amusing narrator.

Journal Entry 5 by QueenMummy from Hawthorne, New Jersey USA on Thursday, January 10, 2008
received this book with Can't Wait to Get to Heaven. I have already read this one many years ago and think it was top notch so I will send it on with the other one!

Thanks jumpingin! I just got it yesterday and I'm starting it immediately. Thank you also for the tea, I'm drinking it as we speak. I noticed there are recipes at the end of the book, the coconut cream pie sounds really good, I'll try it and let you know how it turned out when I finish reading the book. Take care.

Journal Entry 12 by XIV-590003 on Tuesday, October 07, 2008
My husband loved the coconut pie, I added a whipped cream topping. The Pecan Pie I'd made before, I also tried the Buttermilk Biscuits, Candied Yams and the Fried Green Tomatoes with gravy, of course; I'd never had them before, their delicious, I've copied the recipe. It's taken me a while to finish the book because I was often busy cooking rather than reading! I really enjoyed it though, like other books by Fannie Flagg they can make you both laugh and cry, I was thinking it would make a great theatre production, the movie is not nearly as good as the book. Thank you for sharing, I'll contact voveryte for her addy.

Thank you very much for sharing this - looks very promising! I'll try to be fast, but you know, those bookrings - they all come at once!

Journal Entry 15 by voveryte from Woolwich, Greater London United Kingdom on Tuesday, December 02, 2008
Such a lovely book! If honestly, I couldn't get into it at first and was quite annoyed by few characters. Later, when the story continued, I got more and more into it and couldn't put it down! Extraordinary story and extraordinary characters! I was still annoyed by few episodes at times, especially for Evelyn's unhealthy diet habits and Mrs. Threadgoode approving them, but at the end everything turns out well (sorry if it's a spoiler, though I don't think so as it's not the main story line anyway! :))

Mailed to kalise today. Thanks jumpingin for the opportunity to read this book and Rosella05 for passing it on to me.

Journal Entry 16 by kalise from St. Florian bei Linz, Oberösterreich Austria on Friday, December 05, 2008
Received the book here in Austria! Thank you voveryte!!! Thank you jumpingin for offering it as a bookray. It looks absolutely lovely & can't wait to start reading it :)

Journal Entry 17 by kalise from St. Florian bei Linz, Oberösterreich Austria on Friday, December 12, 2008
This book is a real treat! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I've seen the movie several times before but that was a long time ago, and I also think that the book is a lot better (even though I also loved the movie). I've copied out some of the recipes and will definitely try them, especially the coconut pie (I already have the ingredients). :)

Thank you so much for sharing this book with me.

I've requested hippolein's address & will try to send on the book ASAP.

Journal Entry 19 by winghippoleinwing from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, December 22, 2008
The book arrived safely in Helsinki today.
Thank you very much kalise for sending it and a special thank you to jumpingin for setting up this bookray!
We're looking forward to reading the book!

Journal Entry 20 by winghippoleinwing from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Thursday, January 15, 2009
Teddyke and hippolein finished the book now, was a wonderful read, as we had expected ;-)
Nice combination of some sort of detective story (who did what and where and to who) and of an explanation of the life in that part of the United States around World War One and then later on (nice way of jumping from time to time, didn't disturb the reading at all in this book, made it more clear).
You notice Fannie Flagg is a very talented writer!

The book continues to travel right away
as I promised it to Aspen72 in Turku :-)

Thank you for your generous draw, hippolein, and thank you for this book!! Actually this book caught my eye because of previous comments - I think something really funny would suit me really well at this time :-)

Edit 10.2.2009: Promised to send this to Honeybee101, Australia, after reading myself first.

Journal Entry 23 by AspenYard from Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Thursday, April 30, 2009
I finished this a while ago, and it's been waiting posting since.
In a way interesting story, caught me and my curiosity at some point. It took some time to figure out the time frame of the book, and black-white politics and attitudes before 1960s (and maybe a bit still???), even though I have read couple of other books telling about those times. I liked that old lady Ninny - and forgot to copy the recipies :)

Now this book is on it's way to Australia. Happy reading!

Journal Entry 24 by Honeybee101 from Lake Macquarie, New South Wales Australia on Saturday, June 13, 2009
Thanks for the book Aspen Yard. I can see that it has travelled quite a bit, starting off in Chicago and then from Finland to Australia. I'm in the middle of exams and assignments for the end of Semester but looking forward to reading this book in about two weeks time.Thanks for including me in this bookray.
