I think it is impossible to read or hear this book read without feeling better about life; and Fannie Flagg's reading brings out the very best - things to smile and laugh at, things to think about and things to make you feel sad. But throughout, the atmosphere of a mid-west small-town community, which may never have existed except in American mythology, in which people are accepted and cared for, no matter who they are or what their excentricities, just makes you wish you had been there.
Please may we have more of Fannie Flagg's works on Audible - perhaps 'Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistlstop Cafe' or 'Welcome To The World Baby Girl' (Which also features Neighbour Dorothy, her family and neighbours).

No idea why it has this title, or jacket image as they don't seem to relate to this extraordinary book (loosely based around two Missouri families) at all. If you liked Steel Magnolias or enjoy Garrison Keillor or James Wicox you will love this - it transports you to a time and place that is utterly eccentric and comical and yet unsentimentally moving. Just so quirky and unusual, uplifting, hilarious, lyrical - why hasn't it been made into a film like Fried Green Tomatoes?

A wonderful, old-timey feel-good flavor with an ultimate affection for each character

I didn't want the book to end. I loved all the characters in the book. And also enjoyed listening to Miss Flagg's reading of her book.
