44. The Help, Kathrynn Stockett

I'm not into writing book reviews I suppose, but occasionally I would feel like saying a thing or two about a book (not quite a review, just some thoughts) like the previous post on The Help.

Happy new year, by the way, and hope we'll all be enriched by the books we are going to read next year :)

If you have not, get hold of Ali Jusoh's Alor Miang. Try to identify one character if there is one in real life and where. Read and reflect what the writer intends to say about the position of Malays then and now.

Happy new year
