I've seen this movie quite a few times and I love it. I finally read the book and found that I love the book just as much. It's just a great read.

This book is full of quirky characters. The Honk and Holler Opening Soon is a restaurant in Oklahoma that is run by a man in a wheelchair. It is often not very busy until a young woman hops out of her ride and says she will work for tips as a carhop. The owner reluctantly agrees. Then a young Vietnamese man who can barely speak or understand English shows up looking for work. This crew, plus Molly O, who keeps things running smoothly round out the employees. As the patronage of the restaurant grows the reader becomes acquainted with some of the strange people of the town. This book captures the mom and pop diners of the past. Each of the main characters seem to be looking for something or missing something in their life. Follow their strories as each person has their dreams come true.… (lisätietoja)
