    I have this terrible, dreary feeling in my diaphragm area this morning, and I m not positive what it s about, but I blame some of it on this book, which I am not going to finish I have a friend who is mad at me right now for liking stupid stuff, but the thing is that I do like stupid stuff sometimes, and I think it would be really boring to only like smart things What I don t like is when smart or ev

    I was uncomfortable with the tone of the book I felt that the author played to very stereotypical themes, and gave the characters especially the African American ones very inappropriate and obvious voices and structure in terms constructing their mental character I understand that the author wrote much of this as a result of her experiences growing up in the south in the 1960 s, and that it may seem auth

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I read the first paragraph of The Help, absorbing the words, but suddenly being caught off guard by the dialect I stopped reading.I shifted the book in my hands, flipping to the author s biography and photograph on the back of the dust jacket Staring up at me was this image error Oh, sweet Jesus, I thought An affluent, white Manh

    Here is an illustrative tale of what it was like to be a black maid during the civil rights movement of the 1960s in racially conflicted Mississippi There is such deep history in the black white relationship and this story beautifully shows the complex spectrum, not only the hate, abuse, mistrust, but the love, attachment, dependence Stockett includes this quote by Howell Raines in her personal except at the end

    The Kindle DX I ordered is galloping to the rescue today AND, for all the book purists which would include me , this is a need, rather than a want Post several eye surgeries, I m just plain sick of struggling to read the words on a page.However, despite the visual challenges, I read all 451 pages of The Help yesterday Clearly, the book held my interest However, I spent last night pondering why the book wasn t as good as

    Ever morning, until you dead in the ground, you gone have to make this decision You gone have to ask yourself, Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today Color me surprised I m not one to read many historical fictions, especially when they don t include any fantasy elements They read like nonfiction, and nonfiction is only good for me if I m in need of sleep B but The Help is different It doesn t only describe the

    enthusiasm this book and i almost never met and that would have been tragic the fault is mostly mine i mean, the book made no secret of its existence a billion weeks on the best seller list, every third customer asking for it at work, displays and reviews and people on here praising it to the heavens it practically spread its legs for me, but i just kept walking i figured it was something for the ladies, like sex and the city,

    The Help is a tale of lines, color, gender and class, in the Jackson, Mississippi of the early 1960s This is a world in which black women work as domestics in white households and must endure the whims of their employers lest they find themselves jobless, or worse It is the Jackson, Mississippi where Medgar Evers is murdered, and where spirit and hope are crushed daily It is the Jackson, Mississippi where Freedom Riders are taken from
