The Help...

"You is kind. You is smart. You is important."

The Help
takes place in pre-civil rights Mississippi during the early 1960's. A twenty-two-year-old writer and three maids embark on a risky project that could potentially put them and their families in danger.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. The characters were believable and endearing. There was plenty of humor mixed with sadness and nail biting suspense. I give this book five stars. I didn't want it to end. If you haven't read it yet be sure you put it at the top of your reading list. The movie is due to come out soon. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.



  1. I just finished this book last night! I loved it, and I, too, didn't want it to end! I'm anxious to see the movie, but I don't want to put too much into it, because so many times the book is better than the movie!

  2. I know what you mean. I have only ever seen one movie that I thought was better than the book, but I love to read a book and then immediately see the movie. Good or bad. I think the movie may be coming out in about three weeks.

  3. I read it as Well!!! Wasn't it GOOD???
    I blogged about it maybe 6 or 8 months ago...

  4. I'll go back in your archives tonight and find that blog. I would love to read it.
