I bought this on the back of my reading of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, which was great.

A very enjoyable read, light hearted but also thought provoking, with a little bit of magic thrown in. I did not realise it was a sequel, but this did not spoil the tale in any way. I will be looking out for more Fannie Flagg.

On its way to Hong Kong today

Journal Entry 5 by wandering-B from Tai Po, New Territories Hong Kong on Friday, December 12, 2008
Received today. Thanks, Midlifecrisis for sending this out. It may take until after the holidays to finish it, though, as things are crazy busy right now.

I just love Fannie Flagg and her writing style. I can just imagine Mrs. Elner Shimfissle up in the fig tree in her tatty old robe picking figs. A fun read - a little thought-provoking. Will PM the next for their address and move it along.

The book just arrived!!! Thank you Wandering-B for sending me the book, and a special thanks to Midelifecrisis for letting me take part in this ray! I'll try to read it ASAP.

Journal Entry 8 by kalise from St. Florian bei Linz, Oberösterreich Austria on Tuesday, March 24, 2009
Oh this was such a lovely read! Thank you so much Midlifecrisis for sharing this wonderful book! It's soothing for the soul. Funny, lighthearted and yet dealing with some serious topics (who could've thought reading about death & life-after-death could be so fun?), definitely thought-provoking. Some of those discussions that these characters have are just really precious! Am thinking about buying this book and sharing it with my mom & friends.

Am going to PM Rossella05 (UK) for her address and will try to send on the book ASAP. :-)

Thank you Kalise, it got here yesterday, I've just finished another bookray so I'll be starting this one this evening.

Journal Entry 11 by XIV-590003 on Wednesday, April 15, 2009
It was ok but not as good as "Welcome to the world, baby girl". It has the familiar, endearing elements of Fannie Flagg's novels and I've always found them uplifting and entertaining but this one wasn't as original as the others and the ending seemed contrived. I love Elner though, she's a memorable character and this turned out to be the perfect seasonal read as most of the story takes place around Easter and the themes reflect the spirit of the holiday. Thank you so much for sharing Midlifecrisis, I have voveryte's address and will post the book on saturday.

Arrived today! Thanks!

Journal Entry 14 by voveryte from Woolwich, Greater London United Kingdom on Sunday, June 07, 2009
Finished!
I have signed for this ray after I've read Fried Green Tomatoes... and hoped for a good read, but I don't know why, but this book wasn't up to my expectations. Maybe the bad timing or the mood, but it didn't do any good to me as it did to most of you guys...
Anyway, thanks so much Midlifecrisis for organising this ray. Since I'm the last one on the list, I'll think of further travels for this book.

Thanks very much for sending this to me. I'm really looking forward to reading it. :-)

Journal Entry 17 by Cinderess on Saturday, June 13, 2009
I enjoyed the first third lots, there was some very funnily dialogue between characters. (If that's the right word for a book, rather than film?) The middle section was ok, if a little mushy, and the last seemed to be for tying up the ends. A bit disappointing overall.
