The Help by Kathryn Stockett
I’ve been trying for a while now to write a decent review of this book. I can’t. This book is amazing. I thought the movie was great, but the book was so much better. We get so much more insight into the characters’ thoughts and lives that just didn’t shine through in the film (although it was still great).
I loved the characters, especially Aibeleen. Her story is just heartbreaking. I wasn’t a big fan of Skeeter in the beginning, funny enough, I thought her chapters were a bit boring compared to Minnie and Aibeleen’s. But as soon as she started to feel the injustice being done to the help, and gained more insight into their lives, I loved her.
The only drawback of this book is the very distinct lack of Emma Stone, but other than that, this book was perfect. This is going to be a classic, and everyone should read it.
