A very pleasant surprise!

Absolutely loved this book. Very easy to read and become emotionally involved in the story line. The type of book you walk away from feeling like you've learnt something of importance as well as having read an enjoyable story. Definitely recommend.

The Help

I could not put down this book, from page one I was fully hooked. The subject matter is one that should not be ignored and the voices in the book moved me to tears. I don't think I have cheered so loudly whilst reading a book (the pie is all I will say). I refuse to watch the movie as I know it won't be as fantastic as the book!

the help

ok so the help. it is a sad,happy book at the same time i love that they end up with a book about it. it really is about wot the black maids and wot they goon though ow and just saying now that the time this was going on it was the 1960's. but i think u all should read the book and the movie and u should see a big change between them.

The Help

The movie was great, the book was fantastic. The language that is used within the book was very life-like, you could imagine yourself listening in as the ladies talked. I have recommended this book to a couple of friends who also enjoyed the read, one so much that she brought her own copy.

This sounds like a awesome book to read.and one to make us appreciate that we don't live like that today in New Zealand, where we are a country of united nations of people that live in peace and harmony.

Loved the movie but the book was even better. We have come a long way in understanding all people have feelings-thank goodness. I gave the book to my 14 year old grandaughter and she loved it too. Kath Emmerson

The Help

The movie was great. It did live up to the hype but the book was even BETTER. You get a real feeling of the times and of the deep South of America. Quite a few details were changed for the movie but the storyline in the book is deeper. Highly recommended.

The Help

What a wonderful book. I haven't read a book in ages that I couldn't put down. Intially the langauge was hard to master but once you got used to the southern way of speaking I was hooked. Scary to think that this was going on in our generation!

Loved the movie and the book!

I saw the movie first, and thought it was great. However, I have now just finished the book and if it is possible, the book is even better. I think it is the language that made it so good - you can really hear the characters speaking! I would recommend it to anyone - a great way to learn about what life was like for "the help" - and to remember that this happened in the not-too-distant past!

"The Help"

I loved "the Help" from start to finish. I laughed out loud, I cried, I felt every emotion. Such bravery, courage, and sheer determination those women had in a segregated time in US history. The humour is seriously funny. I am so glad to have experienced the journey of those women, so carefully crafted by Kathryn Stockett, I can't wait until she writes another book! This one is a cracker alright.

If you havent read this book already-get going! An insight into waht black maids had to put up with from their middle class white masters, in the 1960's no less! Brilliant story, just hope the movie does the book justice.

I enjoyed this book and became very involved with the characters. What became apparent to me was that the book could not have been written in the sixties owing to the Civil Rights movement and the activities of the Klu Klux Klan and in this story the viciousness of the key woman, Miss Hilly. How lucky we are in NZ not to have had a rampant group like the KKK! Though it would have been nice to have a happy ending for the romance of Miss Skeeter, it was pleasing that the author went for the career option instead. I might never look at chocolate cake in quite the same light again either.
