I just finished reading the most amazing book. I read “the Help” and I loved it. What an amazing book that touches upon all of life’s emotions. I felt like I went through every emotion in this book. I was angry and sad. I wanted to kick some characters and hug others. It really is very good. I felt like I was on the same journey towards self discovery that all the characters in the book were on.
I loved the character of Skeeter. I was reminded of what it’s like to be single when all my girlfriends were married and how dating can be such a crazy mess. I also had a special place in my heart for Celia Foote. I felt such a kinship with her struggle to have a family. I cried at a truly touching emotional scene between her and her husband. I also loved the characters of Aibileen and Minny. I loved that they were two strong, loving and hard working women. They were women who did the right thing regardless of the consequences. I also liked the sense of hope in these stories regardless of the challenges. The messages in this book are so strong and though provoking.
I recommend reading this book. I can’t wait to see the movie. If it’s half as good as the book then I am sure I will love it.
