[Review] The Help by Kathryn Stockett

The HelpThe Help by Kathryn Stockett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I picked this up not knowing a single thing about it other than the title and that it has a pretty yellow and purple cover. At first I was quite put off by Aibileen's opening chapters, with the broken English and heavy accent, but once I got into the story it all started to flow nicely. The language chosen for Aibileen soon made her a more distinct and real character, rather than a minor annoyance.

I've said this in other reviews, and I'll say it again, I absolutely love reading multiple POVs! I felt that this book was an exceptionally strong example of multiple POVs done right. It gave great insight in how each of these three women felt about the events taken place around them. I found myself completely invested in their stories, and I wanted them to succeed.

This is an inspiring tale of doing what's right, making changes in the world for the better, and friendship, among other things. I would most definitely recommend this to everyone!
