Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is the now-classic novel of two women in the 1980s; of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women - of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth - who back in the '30s ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present - for Evelyn and for us - will never be quite the same again....

Not to be confused with the older abridged version of this book read by Fannie Flagg, this recently-recorded version, read by the actress Lorna Raver, is outstanding. It's as if Jessica Tandy were reading the book. If you're a fan of Fannie Flagg and Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café and liked the movie, then by all means purchase this audiobook. It's a fresh and very professional production and will make you appreciate Ms. Flagg's writing talent even more. I highly recommend it.
