My Thoughts on 'The Help'
Skeeter takes on a project of writing an anonymous book on the specific events around the maids in their small town and creates quite the buzz. This story is beautifully written and full of memorable characters, outrageous scenarios, historical value and just plain fun. I found myself not wanting to put this book down as I read about the interesting and very different relationships between each of the families and their servants. In addition to a great story line, it appealed to all of my emotions. If adapted well, there is great potential in the film.
I have been waiting for the film since I saw the first trailer back in May. If you decide to see the film and have not read the book, I encourage you to take the time and read it as well. You won't be disappointed.
