I wanted to read the help before watching the movie, and the book was better than I had expected. It is simple to read, and the story line is just gripping. The movie honestly does not pay it as much justice as it should

Loved this book. Fantastic character development, you can picture them so vividly. Really opened my eyes to how black women (in particular) were treated in the Southern states not too long ago. Would highly recommend.

The book, "The Help" is an insightful look at the relationships between 'colored' servants, the people they worked for and the racial rift as seen from the perspective of the servants.

AMAZING read! Couldn't put it down. The humor was just always at the right time for this not-discussed, taboo topic. Can't wait to see the movie and discuss it in my book club.

I loved The Help! It was a fantastic book I couldn't put down. Delivery from Amazon was not good as the book took weeks to show up and then turned out to be large font text.

I couldn't buy the paperback version at the bookstore for this price! Great price and easy shopping! With two toddlers, online shopping is much easier for me. Love Amazon!

It was just an amazing read... So true to real life and opens your eyes on how people have treated the African Americans with such disrespect even to this day...

I loved this book. I laughed out loud many times. I found myself re- thinking how I treat people on a daily basis, especially anyone working for me!

I am a bookaholic and this is the first time I have ever wanted to post a review!!
I LOVED it, I loved the storytelling, the beautiful phrasing, the heartache, the humour and the overall loveliness of this book.
I am heartbroken that it is over because I truly miss the characters.
I am also left with a much better understanding of what the USA "felt like" just a few years before I was born (my mom's descriptions of the south make much more sense now).
