From the telling of an 86 yr old woman comes the story of her youth and the people who affected not just herself, but her entire community. In telling her story, it also affects her visitor and perhaps the readers as well. Life was hard in 1930 Alabama; not just for black people but white as well. They survived by helping each other...by showing 'christian' love even if you didn't go to church. And yes, sometimes a law or two was bent or broken to do it but you followed your heart.
Although...for all those who know the movie and the book like the palm of their hand, a word of caution: you'll miss the actresses's voices (in the case of the movie) and many of the delicious details of the book that were left behind in this abridged version (like the catfish joke Idgie and Stump played on unsuspecting visitors and when Idgie first met Ruth and when Ruth went away) and I think it's because reading verbatim from the book would've made it too long, but I still resent that they left so much out.
This audio book is really for the hardcore fans. Anyone else will tire of it. But Fannie Flagg is delightful and it gives this CD that extra something when you know the woman who cooked this story up is telling you the story from her own lips.
Buy this if you fell in love with Ruth and Idgie and Ninny and Evelyn. It'll add to the collection you probably already have revolving around Fried Green Tomatoes.
