Listen to an excerpt from the audiobook.The wildly popular "New York Times" bestseller and reading group favorite
Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, who's always taken orders quietly, but lately she's unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She's full of ambition, but without a husband, she's considered a failure. Together, these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town...

I grew up in Meridian, MS and can so relate to what is in this book. I have not completed it yet because I had three other books ahead of this one. I am currently reading it and think it is phenomenal. It is so intense and riveting that I actually walk on the treadmill longer because the book is so good i can't stop reading. So far...loving it!

I didn't get much sleep while reading "The Help"-- I couldn't put it down! It is sad, funny, enlightening...it made me glad that so much has changed for the better, and angry that the bad stuff happened at all. It's just so real--the people, the situations, attitudes..personalities. I can't explain it, but I very much recommend it.

I just finished reading this book and it is wonderful. The relationship between these women and the bond of friendship that develops is written with great consideration of the time and era in which the story is taking place.

I never new about this side of the south...I'm from the south, though we never had "Help". I've always known about the lines that had been drawn and I always questioned them but was hushed by my Granny. This story made me mad but also made me laugh and cry. I also felt ASHAMED. These woman "the Help" are so strong. Yes I know the movie is out now and yes I do plan to see it..BUT please read the book. You will not be disappointed.
