The Help by Kathryn Stockett



I bought this book a year ago. And I found time only a few days back to read this book. Not that I was busy reading other books. I just got a bit lazy.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett is about 'colored maids' working for Whites. I don't know which genre will this novel fall under. But I found the book really interesting. The English used by the main characters is kind of different. Author use 'a' for both 'of' and 'to'; 'they' for 'their'; 'gone' for 'gonna'. I had to read some texts a couple of times to get the actual meaning. When I finished around 100 - 125 pages, I found the story really touching. No wonder why the author took 5 years to complete this book.

I don't really find myself interested in reading non-thriller novels. One of my friend suggested to read the book. And I don't regret reading it.
