What the community says about Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
- "An amazing book written by an amazing author. It captures the essence of the American South in a bygone era so perfectly, it is almost mythical. It taught me some of the most valuable life lessons and has inspired me ever since I first read it all those years ago."
- "The best towns are small town. There is nothing like the suffocating, dreary feeling of being surrounded by the same people day in day out. The buildings are small and your town is surrounded by the woods. There is nothing like ready stories that are set in small towns. This book is a great recommendation of small town settings. "
- "This book has a long title that fits the bill in terms of what it delivers. The story is very endearing and gives a glimpse into a bygone in American history that many still pine for today. I read this book and found myself looking at current day society and wondering where it all went wrong. "
- "The best novel with racial discrimination would not be Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. It is not a good portrayal of racial discrimination as it does not have any in the story. It is a good book, just not one that would fit the narrative that you're looking for. "
- "Great book about old people and will always make me laugh. I always hope that my family will express the willingness to continue on like the people in this book. "
- "The book didn't interest me despite being written by the "funniest ladies in America" according to Amazon. Perhaps it was my difficulty as a man relating to the two women protagonists or having a different sent of humor. I could see how an older lady could like it, but it wasn't for me."
- "Fried Green Tomatoes is an American classic. Fannie Flagg is hilarious and her characters are chock full of southern charm. I recommend reading the book before seeing the movie just because the book is always better, but the movie is still pretty good for a movie based on a book. "
- "I would recommend Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg as one of the best books about friendship between women. The characters are all vividly drawn and I immediately cared what was going to happen to them. Fannie Flagg writes with humor and warmth. Jumping around in the different perspectives and times really works well, even though I wasn't sure about it at first. I really enjoyed this book."

in What are the best Southern books"I really enjoyed this book. It setting is in Alabama, a southern state, and it is a truly engaging book. I feel that the book is better then the movie. I could hardly put the book down, it was that good. You really get involved and immersed with the characters. If you are looking for a good book to read or if you have seen the movie, you really need to get this book. You will not be disappointed. "

in What are the best LGBTQIA books"Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is easily one of the best LGBTQIA books. The story is so fun and I really enjoyed the lighter take on the subject. By turns heartwarming and amusing, there was never a dull moment when reading it. In fact, I can't remember an author so expertly combining so many elements. A must read!"
