Curl Up With a Book

The HelpThe Help by Kathryn Stockett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amazing book! This was very far out of my range of what I know about. I have never lived in (or even visited) the South. I have never had hired help and have no experience with most of the situations in the book. Still, I am human and Ms. Stockett did a fabulous job of bringing out the humanity of her characters (or utter lack of humanity in at least one case). This was absolutly one of those books that I had trouble putting down and I have the dark rings under my eyes to prove it.

Hi! Stumbled upon your blog and just wanted to say that Hilly is probably the most detestable character in literary history! I enjoyed the book very much as well. :)
