So I’m back again with yet another book review, I know I should be getting you more real posts , but I have been so caught up with life lately, that I can’t be bothered to write. Maybe, I’ll write a post about this later. This review is on a book that I finished while I was away for a bit, although you might not have noticed…this book is The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
The book was especially hyped since there was a movie that came out with the same name. I think it was based on the book, but I could be wrong. I also haven’t seen it, but I may watch it in the future so then you’ll find a post on it then.
We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as mush as I’d thought.
I thought that I should start this review off with my favorite quote from the book which also happens to be Kathryn Stockett’s favorite quote also. This book is told from three perspectives: Aibileen, Minny, and Skeeter. Each of these people create a wonderful whole story that tels what life in Mississippi in the 1960s might have been like. Aibileen is a maid for Miss Leefort and has mostly cared for children all her life. Minny has also been a maid all her life, but because she has such a mouth on her that often causes her to get fired. Minny also comes from a bad family situation. Skeeter is a white woman who feels like just doesn’t fit in, in Mississippi anymore and would rather be anywhere but here.
