The Help -- by Kathryn Stockett

The Help The Help by Kathryn Stockett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh how I loved this book for so many reasons. My one complaint -- I wanted more about Minny and Miss Celia -- I needed more closure there or something. I'm so intrigued with Miss Celia and I kept thinking she'd be more in the storyline. This is definitely the genre I like, so I was expecting to like it (and with all the feedback I've heard on it, I thought it was going to be what I expected anyway). But I love this. I loved the different narratives. I loved the characters. I loved the basic plot. I loved the suspense. I loved that I was on the edge of my seat at moments thinking, "no no no no no no!" or "That brat!" I haven't read a good book like this in a long time.

Jen, I loved the Help too. Another book you may like is Same Kind of Different as Me. Different subject matter, but I left with the same feeling after the help - like I was better able to understand somebody's else's world.
