Hysterically Funny! July 8 2009
By Rose D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the funniest book I've ever read. I bought it when it first came out and after reading it subjected my friends to oral readings "from the book of Daisy Fay." I could pretty much pick out any chapter, read it out loud and have everyone in stitches. You know it's funny when your friends say over the telephone "Hey, read us Daisy Fay!" Fannie Flagg has a way of describing Daisy Fay and her antics that make you feel like you are right there with her. The reason I am writing this review is because I'm ordering another copy. I loaned my original out but can't remember to who. If you ever wanted a good laugh this is the book for you!

One of the funniest books ever written Sept. 13 2007
By R. lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book and laughed out loud. I gave it to my depressed daughter to read on a long plane ride. She was told repeatedly to quiet down because she was laughing so hard. It's probably the naked truth that is so funny because it's so seldom revealed.Great characters, settings and a twisty plot. You'll love it and I have nothing to gain by telling you this.

Fannie Flagg at her best Jan. 29 2007

Along side Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe this is Fannie's best novel. I can't decide which of the two is better. this novel made me laugh out loud. I recommend this to anyone. anything by Fannie is awsome, don't wait pick it up.

Hilarious and intriguing July 14 2008
By April L. Block - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Why read about a girl who is borderline white trash growing up in the South in the 50s? Because it's personal, touching, and funny as hell. Fanny Flagg never fails me, and she has done it again in one of her earlier books which somehow slipped by me until now. Flagg's characters are homey, eccentric, and never dull. I don't see how you could read this and NOT be entertained.
So very funny, yet also with some real life tragedy. Oct. 12 2014
By Zuri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is extremely funny, but with the requisite sad and even shocking bits sometimes underlying the hilarity. As a non-American (South African) I got the idea that author Fannie Flagg was often slyly poking fun at Mississippi and the Southern states in general -- for example, the names of the characters. I enjoyed it thoroughly and would urge anyone who is a little depressed, or tired of daily bad news, to relax with this book.

As a white South African I was amazed at the very real racial divide which existed in the south in the Fifties: I was not aware how deep the differences between white and black ran.

(Personally, I found it heart-warming that Daisy often brings up movie titles and film star names of those days -- days when we worshipped Hollywood instead of TV stars!)

The story does contain a few impossibilities, such as the trout fishing competition where Daisy Fay and her father defrosts a old trout, insert false eyes, stuff it with buckshot for weight, and pass it off as a "champion catch"! Surely the judges must have smelled the fish and distrusted the look of it!

Towards the end of the book things went a little too well for Daisy, but she's a girl with such guts that one can only clap hands for her! Buy this book and have a few hearty laughs.
