Books From My Closet

"I Love Books The Way Some Girls Love Shoes"

Courage

Hello Dear Followers,

Well, I finally finished “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett.  I enjoyed it, I thought it dragged on a bit, but overall I enjoyed it. I loved the characters of Skeeter, Minny and Aibileen.

Tonight I saw the movie and I was told it was different than the book and it was,  major parts from the book were left out, but it was just perfect.  I didn’t feel it needed all that extra details the book included.  I felt each character played their part perfectly.

My heart hurt when I was visually seeing the inequality Minny, Aibileen, Yule May and black people went through during that time. To treat someone so horribly simply because of the color of their skin is just so horrible.

I found the book and the movie really stand on their own, one can’t be compared to the other or considered better than the other. If you read the book, that’s great, it’s a good read, if you just saw the movie, that is enough too.

Until next time….

P.S. I just love Octavia Spencer! She is by far the cutest thing!
