I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about this book at first. I had thought it was another of those popular "chick books" that end up getting turned into movies later. But I was very pleasantly surprised! Within the first couple chapters, I was already in love with the characters of this story.
Having grown up in Mississippi, I know where all the places in the book are, which was really fun. I also have a good feel for the dialect, which Miss Stockett attempted to bring us in this story. I wasn't very happy with the way some of the pronunciations were spelled, however, because I feel the spellings, while mostly correct if spoken out loud, aren't the true words and could potentially be confusing. That, however, is a minor gripe. The only other thing I have to say on the negative side is that it feels like the last several chapters are a bit rushed somehow. You get to a point and it feels like everything is starting to speed by all of a sudden. I would have liked for those final parts of the story to have gone by with the same pace as the rest of the book.
Overall, this is a fantastic book and very well written. This book has become my favorite, in fact, and I look forward to any other books Miss Stockett may write in the future.
I loved this book and it was much cheaper at Walmart.com than any other site or store I shopped. I received my book quickly at the store and was notified by email. Loved the notification feature of online shopping.
An EXCELLENT book! I could re-read this over and over! It was a book I could not put down! I cannot wait to see the movie, but reading the book is a MUST! I can't wait to get another book by Kathryn Stockett!
I've read this book 4 times and love it each time. I've never re-read a book before this one. I was just astonished that this was the author's first novel. She writes with the experience of a seasoned author. While the blatant racist attitudes of some of the characters is disturbing, it's the good hearted women, who are both black and white, that make the story fun and make it come alive in your mind. A good story should draw you in and make you a part of the story. This author definitely did this. Even though it's a long book, it reads quickly and you won't want it to end. You will become invested in the characters and want them to continue.
Great book!! My grandmother, my mother, and I all read it. It's one of those must-reads that you can't put down! ~*~
If you liked the movie, you will love the book. We know when a movie is made from a book, they always leave something out or change the story a little. So read the book, if you want the WHOLE story!
Great book, growing up in the mid west, did not know this was going on. Well written book, want to see the movie but will wait until I am finished with the boo
If you think the movie is good...............the book is even better!
Very good book
This book is a must read! I recommend that you see the movie first....that way you can picture what is going on as you read. This bool is funny, enlightful, and riveting. I love this bool and will reread it.
I read 1 or two books a week and it's been a long time since I've read one like this, I laughed and cried, was inspired. Excellent book!!
I haven't read the book yet but I expect it will be much better than the movie which is great! Looking forward to reading during my Fall Fiesta season.
Best book I have read in a long time. It reads fast. Looking forward to seeing the movie.
This book is going to be one of my all-time favorites. The story is so heartwarming and I recommend it for teenagers also. Just get the book you won't be dissapointed!
What a wonderful book! So glad I added it to my collection of great books!
This book follows the movie - Awesome reading!
The book is always better than the movie.
The Help is a book I would recommend to everyone. The price was much cheaper at Walmart than most of the places I checked. Also Walmart has a ship to store that saves you even more dollars. Pick up is so simple takes very little time if you have other errands to run. I recommend using Walmart for all of your online shopping.
I T WAS A GREAT BOOK,I REALLY ENJOYED IT.
The interview part of book is long and drug out, made me loose interest.
