Goodreads Review: The Help — Kathryn Stockett

The HelpThe Help by Kathryn Stockett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It is hard, if you’ve seen the movie first, not to see the characters in your mind, as you read, as they were in the film. Especially Minny, but what a perfect fit for Octavia Spencer! I loved reading the darker details of this story that the movie glazes over, a history much more accurate, unfortunately. I never quite understood the naked man’s appearance, but I guess the irony is that the greatest threat to anyone’s health in this story came not from a black maid using a white lady’s toilet, but from a crazy white dude.
