The Help

So, I finally read The Help.  It's about time, right.  It's a great read and reminder of what went on in this country not that long ago.  The voices of the women in the book were inspirational, heartbreaking, heartwarming, irrational, irritating, smart, funny and about a million other words.  If you haven't read it, I recommend you do.  I'm leery to see the movie, so many times the movies don't live up to my expectations but many people say it's a good movie too.  I suppose I'll have to find out.

movie was very well made! allowed me to hear the voices as they were meant to be heard--with southern accents and dialect. :) go see it but remember it will be a bit different

I also just read the book, great read, but reluctant to see the movie as well...maybe later when out of the theater. I think we forget the kind of risks people take to break certain stereotypes and racial barriers.
