“Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe” by Fannie Flagg

Chances are that I’ll never visit the state of Alabama in the United States. And it’s absolutely certain that I’ll never travel back in time, and see Alabama little towns of the 30ies. But thanks to Fannie Flagg and her book “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe” I was transported into both, and that was a delightful journey.

Like almost every journey it was full of new impressions, adventures, meeting different people, some laughter, and some tears. This journey has given me grounds for thinking – the most valuable gift a book can give, in my opinion.

Mrs.Threadgoode, Evelyn, Dot Weems, Idgie, and all the people of the town of Whistle Stop have become real – have become alive.

The book touches on some sensitive topics. In a person with inflexible views, it might cause disagreement, and even spoil the experience of reading. I won’t give any details; other reviews are rather explicit, so if you’re cautious, you can read them before reading the book.

I enjoyed reading “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe” since it offered what is the most important for me in a book – a chance to be completely engrossed in the story. Such stories are like cosy blankets you don’t want to get out from.
