The Help

>> Tuesday, December 25, 2012


The Help, written by Kathryn Stockett, is the first book from this year's Big Bad Wolf Sale that I've read, and I think it's really good. The story is about black women working as domestic maids back in 1962 (till 1964). These are some of the things that made the book interesting (perhaps a bit from the technical point of view):
- The story is told from the point of view of three different people, with clear distinction between the three in the chapters splits, the style of narration as well as the narration itself
- The story moves at a good pace (not too slow, not too fast)
- There are 'mystery' plots to keep reader guessing and in suspense
- The plots are not all predictable
- Good dose of humour as well as heart-warming moments
