“The Help” By Kathryn Stockett Book review

The Help

The Help

Three ordinary women are about to take one extraordinary step.
Twenty-two-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but it is 1962, Mississippi, and her mother will not be happy till Skeeter has a ring on her finger. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, the woman who raised her, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone.
Aibileen is a black maid, a wise, regal woman raising her seventeenth white child. Something has shifted inside her after the loss of her own son, who died while his bosses looked the other way. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken.
Minny, Aibileen’s best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobody’s business, but she can’t mind her tongue, so she’s lost yet another job. Minny finally finds a position working for someone too new to town to know her reputation. But her new boss has secrets of her own.
Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed.
In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women – mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends – view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don’t
All I can say is this is must read book!! I absurdly loved loved it! I original bought this book on my Nook from the first chapter I was hooked on it, I found it breath of fresh air some people have said it’s not right how they talk about the old south and how things were, well I will say we need to talk about our past to learn from it and not repeat it! I know that this book is fiction however their are real facts and  truths in this book as well, I love how each chart got to tell there side of the story, this book had funny moments as well as sad one just like everyday life which I loved about i, .I don’t want to give the ending away but I due hope that another books soon follows this one. I was amazed at how well were were taken back in time I give major thumps up at how well it was written. This is one of my favorite books I think everyone should have copy of this book.
