Review

“[Fannie Flagg is] a born storyteller.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Undoubtedly [Flagg’s] wisest book, comic and compassionate . . . Born of a tender heart and nurtured by an imaginative mind, it’s certain to touch the reader’s soul.”—Richmond Times Dispatch
 
“A fun and rollicking Nancy Drew mystery for grown-ups.”—The Birmingham News
 
“Classic Fannie . . . What [Flagg] writes about, time and again, are the touching, terrifying, heartbreaking, hysterical, extraordinary, everyday things that make us human.”—Southern Living

Product Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The beloved Fannie Flagg is at her irresistible and hilarious best in I Still Dream About You, a comic mystery romp through the streets of Birmingham, Alabama, past, present, and future.

Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect—she’s lovely, charming, and a successful agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up living a life so different from the one she dreamed of as a child. But just when things seem completely hopeless, and the secrets of Maggie’s past drive her to a radical plan to solve it all, Maggie discovers, quite by accident, that everybody, it seems, has at least one little secret.

I Still Dream About You
 is a wonderful novel that is equal parts southern charm, murder mystery, and that perfect combination of comedy and old-fashioned wisdom that can be served up only by America’s own remarkable Fannie Flagg.

A nice, easy, feel good read for a rainy afternoon. Fannie Flagg does it again. We all need a Babs and a Hazel to keep us on level ground.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was so thrilled when the book arrived. I have read all of her other novels and was no disappointed by this one. I found this book to be stocked with more believable characters than her other ones. I highly recommend this one! It was hard to put it down.

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Reason for Reading: I've only read one Fannie Flagg book, Fried Green Tomatoes, but I loved it so much. I'd like to read all her books because I love Southern Fiction and after I read the book I realized she was one of the regulars on Match Game. LOL

Now this wasn't as good as "Fried Green Tomatoes" and since I haven't read any others yet I can't compare but as one of the characters in this book was fond of saying "Close enough!." It is a delightful, entertaining story with a rather macabre plotline but a feel good, happy ending. A good book for a summer read or beach read as they say.

Maggie is a former Miss Alabama, now a talented real estate woman in Birmingham. Her age is never mentioned but we do know she isn't receiving social security yet. From her state of mind I tended to think of her as pushing up to either the big 6-0 or 6-5. Maggie has decided life has lasted long enough and has a well-planned elaborate suicide all figured out; all she needs to do is pick the day to put the plan in motion. She has a plan for all of her belongings, her money, a note, etc. She'll neatly close her life off with nothing left undone, not even a body for anybody to worry about. When she does pick the day, something happens which she must see to which delays her for a few days. The next time she picks the day something more significant happens and she has to put the date off for a longer period but she's content knowing that eventually she'll end things as soon as she can.

So not exactly the most uplifting plotline; a woman determined to commit suicide. But this woman who has regretted a lot of choices she's made in life suddenly finds herself continually faced with a life that needs to be lived just a bit longer.
