The Help

Paula Walters - Thursday, September 08, 2011

The Help by Kathryn Stockett has been a popular book club selection since it was first published.  Many book groups are still patiently waiting their turn to receive the book.  Book club copies are still scheduled out to groups until November 2012!!  

The Help takes place in Mississippi in1962.  It is the story of three women who form a friendship.  Skeeter is from a well to do Mississippi family.  She is in her early 20’s and has just returned home after college graduation.  All of her friends are married, they have children, and all are from well to do families.  These young women grew up with black maids, and each now has a black maid taking care of her home and family.  Skeeter gets together with her friends, meeting at their homes, watching how they treat their maids, and she does not like what she sees.  She becomes friends with one of the maids named Aibileen, and talks her into telling her story, so that Skeeter can write a book about “the help”.  Eventually another black maid named Minnie comes forward to tell her story.  Eventually many more come forward.  Remember this is 1962 a scary time for these black women to come forward and tell their stories. Of course there is a lot more to the book, but I do not want to ruin it for anyone who has not read the book.

It is a wonderful book to read but also it was a wonderful book to make into a movie.  The movie was released this summer.  I was very excited to see it.  I was so excited that I called a friend wondering if she had read the book.  She had not.  I happen to own a copy, and lent it to her so she could read it before we saw the movie.  As all readers know the movie is never as good as the book, but I have to say I am not alone in thinking this movie is excellent and it followed the book. Comments I am hearing are : we loved it, the screen play was very accurate, casting was great, and one of the book clubs that went together to see it thought the movie was better then the book!!  If you have not read The Help, I recommend that you do and also go see the movie with your best friends.

In this tide of excellent modifications, our every day life is prone towards the impact of new methods of life. Durable consumer goods, for instance, have a tendency to be discarded once they stay new or usable.

Prior to we produced this tripdavids bridal , I had worked as a teacher of English within the secondary school of this farm for a year.

Its band and casing are produced of stainless steel. It has a transparent glass lid. It isn t waterproof or quakeproof. This brand of watch is no longer created by that factory in Shanghai. Sadly, within the 1990s this watch broke down for a number of occasions. Every time it was out of order, I managed to have it repaired. It broke down for the very first time when I began to study for a MA degree in Shandong University in Jinan in 1993. I visited a number of repair shops on the campus and outside the university, riding a really old secondhand bike, in an effort to locate a correct shop for repair, however the watch was by no means put correct in Jinan even though I paid some cash for repair.
