    I have this terrible, dreary feeling in my diaphragm area this morning, and I m not positive what it s about, but I blame some of it on this book, which I am not going to finish I have a friend who is mad at me right now for liking stupid stuff, but the thing is that I do like stupid stuff sometimes, and I think it would be really boring to only like smart things What I don t like is when smart or even middle brained writers take an important topic and make it petty through guessing about what they don t know I can list you any number of these writers who would be fine if they weren t reaching into topics about which they have no personal experience incidentally, all writers I m pretty sure my angry friend loves For example, The Lovely Bones, The Kite Runner, Water for Elephants, Memoirs of a Geisha, etc These are the books for which I have no patience, topics that maybe someone with imagination or self awareness could have written about compassionately, without exploiting the victimization of the characters They re books that hide lazy writing behind a topic you can t criticize The Help is one of these.You ve got this narrative telephone game in this book The telephone game is pretty fun sometimes, and it is really beautiful in monster stories like Frankenstein and...

    I was uncomfortable with the tone of the book I felt that the author played to very stereotypical themes, and gave the characters especially the African American ones very inappropriate and obvious voices and structure in terms constructing their mental character I understand that the author wrote much of this as a result of her experiences growing up in the south in the 1960 s, and that it may seem authentic to her, and that she was even trying to be respectful of the people and the time but, ultimately, I thought that it was written from a very narrow, idealized, almost childish perspective of race relations without a true appreciation of the humanity and soul of the characters And the ultimate theme message i.e why, we re all the same there s no difference between us after all only reinforced my feeling that this is written from someone who has a very undeveloped or underdeveloped concept of ra...

    I read the first paragraph of The Help, absorbing the words, but suddenly being caught off guard by the dialect I stopped reading.I shifted the book in my hands, flipping to the author s biography and photograph on the back of the dust jacket Staring up at me was this image error

    Here is an illustrative tale of what it was like to be a black maid during the civil rights movement of the 1960s in racially conflicted Mississippi There is such deep history in the black white relationship and this story beautifully shows the complex spectrum, not only the hate, abuse, mistrust, but the love, attachment, dependence Stockett includes this quote by Howell Raines in her personal except at the end of the novel There is no trickier subject for a writer from the South than that of affection between a black person and a white one in the unequal world of segregation For the dishonesty upon which a society is founded makes every emotion suspect, makes it impossible to know whether what flowed between two people was honest feeling or pity or pragmatism. An eloquent way to describe Stockett s intentions for this novel I know most reviews will probably focus on the racial relationships in the book, but to me the most haunting statement was that when you are paying someone to care for you and their livelihood de...

    While it was a well written effort, I didn t find it as breathtaking as the rest of the world It or less rubbed me the wrong way It reads like the musings of a white woman attempting to have an uncomfortable conversation, without really wanting to be uncomfortable It s incredibly hard to write with integrity about race and be completely honest and vulnerable The author failed to make me believe she was doing anything beyond a show tell And if her intent isn t anything greater, then it makes this book all the pandering to the white imagination of what it must have been like to be the help during that era It s passive self reflection at best and utterly useless.The national fascination with this book makes me sick It makes me think of my grandmother who was the help to many white families for well over 50 years Her stories aren t too different from those told in this book, bu...

    The Kindle DX I ordered is galloping to the rescue today AND, for all the book purists which would include me , this is a need, rather than a want Post several eye surgeries, I m just plain sick of struggling to read the words on a page.However, despite the visual challenges, I read all 451 pages of The Help yesterday Clearly, the book held my interest However, I spent last night pondering why the book wasn t as good as my nonstop reading would indicate What was wrong Most of all, I think it was the book s ambivalent tone In brief, a white woman, Miss Skeeter Phelan one of Jackson, Mississippi s socially elite convinces a number of the African American maids to tell her their story What goes on in the homes of the upper crust How do these women really treat their maids Though the book would be published anonymously and no locations would be given, the stories provide enough detail so that the premise that the book could be received as being about Anywhere, USA defies belief Further, while having the book s source known might subject Ske...

    Ever morning, until you dead in the ground, you gone have to make this decision You gone have to ask yourself, Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today Color me surprised I m not one to read many historical fictions, especially when they don t include any fantasy elements They read like nonfiction, and nonfiction is only good for me if I m in need of sleep B but The Help is different It doesn t only describe the life of housemaids, in the second half of the 20th century, in Mississippi it s overflowing with raw emotion It doesn t put every white person in a box and every black person in another It underlines the difference of thought between people, but also how similar we actually all are We all want to live our lives the best way possible and be treated with respect You is kind You is smart You is important I really felt it, when Aibileen and Minny talked about their work, how they wanted needed things to change and how hard their lives were It made me sad, of course, becau...

    enthusiasm this book and i almost never met and that would have been tragic the fault is mostly mine i mean, the book made no secret of its existence a billion weeks on the best seller list, every third customer asking for it at work, displays and reviews and people on here praising it to the heavens it practically spread its legs for me, but i just kept walking i figured it was something for the ladies, like sex and the city, which i don t have to have ever seen an episode of to know that it s not something i would enjoy i figured that this book was on the ladder one rung above chick lit so i am to blame for my snobbish dismissiveness, but have you seen this cover what is with that sickroom color scheme and i hate those stupid little birds what is chip kidd so busy doing that he can t just pop over here and lend a hand it is not my fault for thinking it was a crappy book when that cover wanted me to think it is a crappy book.but this book is good really, really good again, i thank you, readers advisory class, for fixing me up with this book it has been a long time since i have read such a frankly entertaining book if a book about the emotionally charged early days of the civil rights movement can be called entertaining this is just an effortlessly told story, split between three different women, whose voices and perspectives never ru...

    I know what a froat is and how to fix it Aibileen Clark knows how to cure childhood illnesses and how to help a young aspiring writer write a regular household hints column for the local paper But she s struggling mightily to deal with grief over the death of her 20 something son, and she SURE doesn t think conditions will ever improve for African American domestic engineering servants in early 1960s Jackson, Mississippi or anywhere else in the South Aibileen s good friend Minny has been a maid since she was very young, and on the first day of her first job her mother admonished her that sass mouth, especially her degree of it, is highly dangerous but it s not long before she s just gotta mouth off.and look for another job As Minny s first episode of the book opens, she is yet again looking for a new job, and this time an opportunity pretty much falls into her lap Celia Foote needs a domestic engineer, but she also needs a friend, a real ally, even a confidante Oh, one thi...
