I first purchased this book after being enchanted by the movie, and whereas I was prepared to be disappointed (expectations and all) I found that I liked the book just as much and for different reasons.

The story line that I so loved is there - the story of friendships across the ages and through different hardships. And the feeling of the warmth of the South shines through as well. But it is Fannie Flagg's use of the written word that pleased me as well, it is lyrical, and it touches the heart.

This is only a short novel, but it is so full of passion and humour that it is hard not to think of it as a big book. It is delightful and I recommend it highly.

What did you think of this review?
