‘Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café’ by Fannie Flagg

Book Review

Rating 8.5 (out of 10) ‘Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café’ is a novel by Fannie Flagg. It weaves together the past and the present of friendship between Evelyn Couch, a middle-aged housewife, and Ninny Threadgoode, an elderly woman who lives in a nursing home. Every week Evelyn visits Ninny, who tells her stories about her youth in Whistle Stop, Alabama where her sister-in-law, Idgie, and her friend, Ruth, ran a café.

My favorite hero in this book is Ruth. I liked her because she has a forceful character and can inspire any girl to stay strong even while overcoming the most obdurate obstacles. She isn`t the main person in the story, but all thing in this book would have been completely different without her.

I would also like to say that this book made me cry many times. Most readers cannot even suspect how much sad things wait for them on the pages of this book. The saddest thing for me was the ending of the story.

What I did not particularly like was the construction of the book. As I mentioned above, the story is structured in such a way that the past connects with the present. Too many flashbacks. Sometimes this can be confusing for readers.

To summarize, I would like to recommend this book for teenagers and older people. To read the book till the end, you are to be assiduous and assertive. This work is good for the nuts of coziness and comfort, as well as, the fans of something non-standard and new.
