Finished Reading "The Help"

The HelpThe Help by Kathryn Stockett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I had heard such good things about this book. I was a little worried, to be honest, that The Help would not live up to the hype. I decided to go ahead and take the plunge though & I am so glad that I did! This is a wonderful book. Not only did it live up to the hype, in my opinion, but it exceeding what everyone had been telling me.

I loved how it was funny, sassy, sweet, and sad all at the same time. I loved how the author was able to motivate me to question how things where during a time when I wasn't even alive. I really enjoyed Miss Skeeter a lot. She seemed so full of dreams and goals - it was refreshing in a time period where most women just dreamed of becoming a wife and mother.

Everyone should take the time to read this book!

I haven't read the book but from the sounds of it, the book is good but does the movie follow the book or does it add or delete things? That is the big question. I am a new follower thru GFC and Facebook. I would love a follow back on both when you get the chance. Thanks so much for your help and have a great weekend!

I loved this novel. It certainly made me think.

I am looking forward to the film to see if they have managed to bring those powerful characters to the screen.
