  • The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop

    Another joyful novel by Fannie Flagg. It was wonderful to reconnect with the old familiar characters from her previous books and to meet their children and grandchildren. As always, her characters come to life and you feel like they're your own friends and family. A lovely, funny and heart warming book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it

    As usual Fannie Flag has wrote a novel that is enjoyable from start to finish. I have read all her books so was happy to know all her characters lived on in one last book before heading off to meet their maker. Cannot wait to see what comes next!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A heartwarming story

    Thanks to Random House and NetGalley for a digital advance reader's copy. All comments and opinions are my own. I always know that any book by Fannie Flagg is going to be a good read, and this one was just a perfect book for these times. If you've already read Fried Green Tomatoes at The Whistle Stop Cafe, then you'll be delighted to revisit the town of Whistle Stop and many of the same characters. If this is your introduction to Whistle Stop, you're in for a treat. And be sure to read Fried Green Tomatoes soon. This novel is told from the perspective of a few different characters, including a folksy newsletter, and the chapters go back and forth from the past to the present. With humor, drama, warmth, and love, this is feel-good story that will make you smile.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Another Wonderful Fannie Flagg Book

    Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review. Fannie Flagg’s latest book returns us to the Whistle Stop Cafe, home of the world-famous fried green tomatoes. I’ve read most of her books, which are purely heartwarming escapes. This return to Whistle Stop, Alabama is no exception. Bud Threadgoode grew up in Whistle Stop, where his mother and aunt ran the Whistle Stop Cafe. Bud is now in his 80’s, and the town of Whistle Stop has been abandoned for years, after the railroad yards shut down. After the loss of his wife, Bud feels a little lost and decides to take a nostalgic trip to see the old ghost town. Little did he know that his trip down memory lane would change so many lives. The narration spans 70 years, and we get little snippets of life in Whistle Stop over the years as well as what happens to the residents after the town closes. As expected, the characters are wonderful and the storyline is magical, making you wish you lived in such a place. This is just a feel-good novel, and proves that you can go home again (at least, in a Fannie Flagg novel you can). Although the beginning went from one scene to the next without smooth transitions, stick it out. It gets better, and eventually the storyline becomes cohesive.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Love of the Bee Charmer

    I sure loved this book. I started reading it and short of my reader going hunky on me, I finished fast. I loved Fannie's style of writing and story telling. Everyone came together and the town came back to life. So now what is the next story from Ms. Flagg?

    Thanks for your feedback!
