There are other Fannie Flagg books that I like better, but I was still laughing and thinking.
I really enjoyed this book. Eleanor is wise senior citizen who teaches others to think about what is valuable in life. Although her wisdom is serious her humor is amusing. I hope her vision of heaven is what we all find when we get to heaven.
I always enjoy a good book, read by a great narrator. I also always enjoy Fannie Flagg. This book just makes you feel good. Entertaining, funny. I read it in hardcover first, then listened just to be able to hear the voice inflection. Again, just a really good listen.
I bought this book because I think Fannie Flagg is so funny and southern, but this book was boring. A cute story about an old southern woman and her family, but not so interesting!!! I listen to alot of good books on audio- not one of them. I wish I hadn't wasted my credits.
It is just very, very nice. Presented well. A plausible tale in a pleasant middle American small town. The characters are strong and beautifully portrayed.
Down to earth with a touch of "I'm Not So Sure".
Hospitals , ambulance chasers combined with a smart lovable old gal. It's comfortable as well as being very humorous. Left me happy I'd done it
I've read a number of books by Fannie Flagg and she never disappoints. This is a beautiful heartfelt story of how people live with the mystery of life. I simply loved the characters who simply come to life. I'm glad I took a chance on this one too.
I think this was my favorite of the three books set in this town. Fannie Flagg has such a way of bringing characters to life and making you fall in love with them and the small towns they inhabit.
My only disappointment was that Fannie didn't read/narrate this one herself. I very much missed her slow, Southern drawl.
