So, life has been crazy. Crazy in the sense, that I haven’t even read a book since last December. Crazy, in that I haven’t posted to this blog in WAY too long. Crazy, in that my house is never clean.
But summer is here and school is out, and I had the “opportunity” to travel to Ohio for nine days of necessary down time. I had wanted to read The Help for a while, but it was never available at the library and because of where we live… requesting a hold isn’t as easy as it should be any more.
But on a last minute library trip before we traveled, it was sitting right there on the shelf waiting for me. I picked it up and barely put it back down.
Oh so good! So believable. The characters are lovable and relatable and hate-able. The points of view are enlightening, humorous, and cringe-worthy. I stayed up way to too late trying to finish it and then was sad the next night when I didn’t have it to read.
For a debut novel, Ms. Stockett wrote a book I highly recommend!
