Fried Green Tomatoes at the whistle cafe

Title: Fried Green Tomatoes at the whistle cafe
By: Fannie Flag
Pages: 510
Rating: B+
Summary: Cleo Threadgood, 86, shares a lifetime of memories of Whistle Stop, Ala.where the social scene centered on its one cafewith Evelyn Couch, a younger woman who is looking for meaning in her life.  ( Thanks to amazon.) 

My Review: I want to point out that I really liked the movie, also the book, but if for some reason go to read this book. Keep the movie out of your mind, furthest thing for you mind. IF not, your bound, to be a little confused like me. I have seen Fried green tomatoes ( the movie) at least millions time since the time I was six ( maybe younger) till persent. And ever time I see it, it alway leaves me wondering. Where was the old lady place in all of this, how did she know so much about Ruth and Idgie? The movie never really gave me enoght info. So, I decided to read the book, to fill some unanswered questions. 

And I loved the book I truthly did, I fell in love with the characters, it anwser all my questions from the movie and more, and I bet you wondering why I gave the Book a B, well, I just didn't like how our to order it was.
