The Help

I finished this book before the movie comes out (August 10th).  I seriously couldn't put it down.  I laughed and cried with the characters and it was definitely an eye opener.  I feel a bit ignorant admitting that I didn't know that things were to this extreme in Jackson, Mississippi back in the 1960's.


I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read.  I am so surprised that this is the author (Kathryn Stockett)'s first novel.  It was beautifully and well written, I thought she had at least 10 novels under her belt!

Anyway, go pick it up and read it. It will make you appreciate the days that we live in now and our living situations.  

Now, I can't wait to see the movie.  Of course, I know it will not be as good as the book (it never is), but it will be good to see.

Want to see a trailer too?  Okay fine!
