    Once again, Fannie Flagg gives us a story of richly human characters, the saving graces of the once-maligned middle classes and small-town life, and the daily contest between laughter and tears. Fannie truly writes from the heartland, and her storytelling is, to quote Time, "utterly irresistible."

    Fran says: "Standing in the Rainbow"
    "Love the book! Fanny Flagg is the best."

    What did you love best about Standing in the Rainbow?

    This book reminded me so much of my childhood. My home town was so similar to the one described in the book. My grandmother (we lived with Grabdpa and Grandma while my Dad was overseas in the Marines) listened to a radio station program in Shenadoah, IA that was so similar to Neighbor Dorothy. It took me back to bein 4 yeats old.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Such an engaging story line. Just loved it.


    Which character – as performed by Fannie Flagg – was your favorite?

    Neighbor Dorothy and her son Bobby were my favorites.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Return to those days of yesteryear.


    Any additional comments?

    Only wish the book had not been abridged. I read the origianl book, and so much was left out of the audio version.
