    This genuine page-turner offers a whiff of white liberal self-congratulation that won’t hurt its appeal and probably spells big success.

  • With its intimate portrayals of the maids’ relationships with their employers and the children they care for, “The Help” appeals to readers who feel they are getting a behind-the-scenes peek into a dark period in the country’s history.

  • It's definitely a hard subject to write about and we see that from both Kathryn Stockett's and Skeeter's writing. The Help changed the lives of the women in the book and I feel as if somehow it changed my life too.
