Help, I need somebody

Elle Elle thank-you SO much for letting me borrow your book The Help, which I will be able to get back to you someday.

Such a great book! I'm thoroughly enjoying this little club we started. It helps me know which books to read and boy are they good.

I love historical fictions and I thought this was an awesome first novel. All the characters in the book were so well developed and you felt special ties to them. It seemed like she had every kind of character. The strong willed can't have anyone tell me what to do, the leader of the pack, the meek follower of the pack, the strong one that doesn't recognize her own strength, the quite compassionate, the ditzy blonde...incorporating all different types.

I absolutely loved seeing the growth in Skeeter. I loved seeing who she was in the beginning of the book. An unsure,awkward follower of the crowd. She just tried to fit in. When she finally realized she didn't need to follow she really blossomed and turned into a strong, confident woman who could accomplish the unthinkable.

I liked all the relationships in the book all the friendships that were stronger than anything. This was also a book I could not put down. I had to know what happened.

I was a little disappointed with the end. I know it was a good way to end it, but I wanted more. I wanted to know what happened with Skeeter and Aibileen and even the crazy blonde.

Excellent book really opens your eyes the things that happened in our history and helps your realize how far kindness can go.
