I can't say enough good things about this book

Help Deluxe Edition Kathryn Stockett

Help Deluxe Edition Kathryn Stockett

This book stopped me working. I recently finished the final book in Steig Larson's trilogy and felt slightly bereft that it was over. I tried Tess Gerritson's latest book but it felt trite in comparison to Larson. I browsed the Kindle page and downloaded loads of first chapters but none of them caught my attention. And then I stumbled upon The Help. I was grabbed from the first page. The story is based on the injustices and hypocrisies in 1960's Mississippi where back women are good enough to bring up white babies but not good enough to use the same toilet. Despite the obvious loathing some of the maids feel for their bosses, there is real love for the babies they bring up. The story is told from three perspectives, two maids and a white woman who stumbles upon these injustices whilst looking for a way to become a journalist. The story is beautifully written, sad, funny and a damn good read. I was as sorry when it ended as I was when I finished the Larson trilogy. At least now I'll be able to do some work.

  1. In the movie "the Help" a woman writes a book called "The Help" based on the stories of the black maids... Is the book in that movie a real book?
