Book Review: The Help by Stockett (4 Stars)

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

4 out of 5 stars

Read in April 2012

I found this book to be a quick read. I can’t speak to its veracity or historicity, since I was born after most of these events took place and at a significantly northern latitude. I hope Kathryn Stockett portrayed the Help with empathy. I believe she succeeded, for I came away from the book with a better understanding of the plight of African-Americans at the cusp of the Civil Rights movement.
