Review by Library Journal (2009-01-01)

Set in Stockett's native Jackson, MS, in the early 1960's, this first novel adopts the complicated theme of blacks and whites living in a segregated South. A century after the Emancipation Proclamation, black maids raised white children and ran households but were paid poorly, often had to use separate toilets from the family, and watched the children they cared for commit bigotry. In Stockett's narrative, Miss Skeeter, a young white woman, is a naive, aspiring writer who wants to create a series of interviews with local black maids.

Even if they're published anonymously, the risk is great; still, Aibileen and Minny agree to participate. Tension pervades the novel as its events are told by these three memorable women. Is this an easy book to read? No, but it is surely worth reading. It may even stir things up as readers in Jackson and beyond question their own discrimination and intolerance in the past and present.

Review by Library Journal (2009-06-15)

Stockett's (www.kathrynstockett.com) deep and complex debut novel, set in early 1960s Jackson, MS, is about three women drawn together to make a difference. In an unlikely, even dangerous, alliance, an upper-class white woman and two black maids collaborate to write a book about what it's like to be a black maid working for white families, raising white babies. Actresses Octavia Spencer, Bahni Turpin, Jenna Lamia, and Cassandra Campbell immediately pull listeners in, breathing life into this touching novel. Certain to become a book group classic and to be popular among fans of Sue Monk Kidd and Jodi Picoult.
