Book Review: The Help

The HelpThe Help by Kathryn Stockett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is a great book that brings the civil rights era of the 1960s vividly to life in Jackson, Mississippi. I enjoyed the characters and their stories and perspectives very much.

I will never think of chocolate pies the same way again (unfortunately!).

I really enjoyed this book too. How come only 4 stars and not 5?

I liked the book a lot but it wasn't one of my top favorites. I wanted Skeeter and Stuart to end up together and I would have liked a little more clarification in the end with what happened with some of the maids.
