For all you bookworms!

Hi Everybody,

I've decided to write another book review for all you book lovers out there.

This review is about: The Help - by Kathryn Stockett

To summarise, this book takes place in Jackson, Mississippi, post slavery and pre equal rights for all. The book is about black maids raising children of white families. All boundaries are pushed when a white woman decides (together with these maids) to write a book. The book contains stories that these maids experienced throughout their working life. It is completely anonymous. However it is obvious to the white folk, who went about writing this book, and exactly who those stories are about. The book is a brilliant insight into those days, where equal rights were non-existent. I consider this to be another one of my favourite books, as it really is another one of those books that opens your eyes to previous issues that a part of the world experienced.

I recommend this book to anybody who is interested in past events that happened in a different culture.

It combines tears, laughter, anger, joy and every other type of emotion under the sun, and therefore is such a good read! The book is told from different points of view - sharing stories about different characters and families.

Overall, I rate this book:

That's all for now, lovely readers.

As Always, Stay Tuned!
