The Help

By Kathryn Stockett

I have to say, I saw the movie before I read the book. Like, months ago. New Year's Eve, maybe? But I barely remember it. But the book was great. It really brought across the nervousness and the anxiety Skeeter, Aibileen, and Minny were feeling. Also, it enlightens the reader to the high tensions and the hateful relationship between whites and blacks, though it also let the reader know there were exceptions.
I give it a solid 3.9. I really liked it, but the ending was sort of confusing and I found it some what disappointing. But I still highly recommend reading it.
