The Help has been very popular on LibraryThing these past few months. I didn’t think it would be for me, but when two colleagues shortly after each other recommended it to me I had to read it. And I am not sorry. Despite the tough subject and the sadness the book was lovely and fantastic to read, one of the few books keeping me reading late at night.
The characters are gorgeous and real, the writing is good, all was great. Four stars out of five.
