Little Bee: A Novel by Chris Cleave We don’t want to tell you too much about this book. It is a truly special story and we don’t want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesn’t. And it’s what happens afterward that is most important.
Little Bee. Chris Cleave is a writer who keeps you at the edge of your seat and illustrates hope and heartbreak with finesse. I read this book cover to cover in 24 hours. It is that good. I could not put it down.

Books Home Best-Selling Books Book Reviews Blogs The Help By Kathryn Stockett GENRE: General fiction
There's a reason this title is on every book club reading list...it's very good! The compelling story takes place during an ugly time in our country's history and combines tragedy, hope and triumphs of humanity. Tough to put down.
Yes. Now- I'm always about 365 days behind everyone else in the reading world, simply because I boycott popular books for as long as I can stand to: like, say, Emily Giffin novels... can't possibly be any good if that many of my girlfriends actually read them! But The Help, my dears, is worth reading. I didn't want it to end! Now that's the sign of a truly good book... and well-written too! GAsp!
Awesome Book...Couldn't put it down!! The Help: Kathryn Stockett: 9780425232200: Amazon.com: Books
Book club title for June 28th. Kathryn Stockett's novel adopts the complicated theme of blacks and whites living in a segregated South. In Stockett's narrative, Skeeter, a young white woman, is a naive, aspiring writer who wants to create a series of interviews with local black maids. Even if they're published anonymously, the risk is great. Tension pervades the novel as its events are told by these three memorable women.
"The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. This is now one of my favorite books. Definitely worth reading.
awesome book & movie!
"There is so much you don't know about a person. I wonder if I could've made her days a little bit easier, if I'd tried. If I'd treated her a little nicer. Wasn't that the point of the book? For women to realize, We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I'd thought." -The Help, Kathryn Stockett, p. 492 We judge based on what we perceive, what we think we know. We set boundaries based on these abstract concepts. We separate others, group people and things where they "belong" in the categories that we create. Cheap. Classy. Smart. Dirty. Weak. Sexy. Executive. Kind. Blue collar. Creative. Rigid. Annoying. Compassionate. Awkward. Abrasive. Humble. Patriotic. Proper. Simple. Mature. Beautiful. And the list goes on. But in doing so, we separate ourselves. We think we belong in certain categories. We draw invisible lines. It's been a while since I've read a really good book (Modern Library's Top 100 Novels has had some let-downs), so I took a break from my reading list to read The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Someone had left the book (willingly) in our apartment mail room, so I picked it up (and will return it now that I've finished). Nothing better than a good free book! I can't speak for the movie, but if you haven't read the book, you must. It really is excellent. I challenge us all this week to remove one invisible line. When you read the above list of adjectives, what or who came to mind? Why? Is it fair to categorize them that way? Where do you belong?
