The Help By Kathryn Stockett. I know everyone's into this book right now, but that doesn't change the fact that it's worth reading.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett | Great book and movie.. Really makes you think about the prejudices in society nowadays
The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Even if you've seen the movie... read the book. It is wonderful and more alive than watching real people play it out on the screen.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett This book is so powerful and I love it and the movie. I recommend it to *everyone* (+16)
The Help by Kathryn Stockett From page two, the voice in this book had me captivated. I couldn't put it down. The characters wrap themselves around your finger and won't let go. Transported to the 1950's South, you will cry, shout, be so angry you could spit, and laugh out loud as you are allowed to follow the lives of these unforgettable people. This is one of my all time favorite books. Love it, go get it, READ it!
The Help by Kathryn Stockett Skeeter returns home to Mississippi from college in 1962 and begins to write stories about the African-American women that are found working in white households, which includes Aibileen, who grieves for the loss of her son while caring for her seventeenth white child, and Minny, Aibileen's sassy friend, the hired cook for a secretive woman who is new to town... Saw the movie and it was awesome!

Book worth reading and movie worth seeing! Let our boys watch it too as a lesson in civil rights history
Great addition to our site from @yesnofilms - "The Help is one of my all-time favorite movies, which shouldn't be a surprise because the book was also fantastic. I reviewed it on my film blog back in August 2011, and since then, I bought the Blu-ray combo pack and have watched it multiple times...it's not a 'feel good' movie, but it's one that is definitely worth watching."
One of my favorite movies: The Help* (2011) An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis.
Ranting About 'The Help' • A review worth reading for Southerners of a certain age. I will cop to reading the book, watching the movie, and mostly enjoying it, save a few squirmy moments that hit a little close to home. Still, it's always valuable thing to consider another viewpoint.
"The Help" (2011) An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work for. Honestly I almost didn't watch this film because I thought it was gonna be another typical racist movie where all white people are evil etc etc. (Let it Go already !) Honestly I was pleasantly surprised with this film and I absolutely LOVED it ! Great movie !!
THE HELP (2011) - A sassy young writer in the Civil-Rights era American South takes on the privileged white establishment by asking "the help," their impoverished African-American maids, cooks, and nannies, to tell her their stories. What can I say? I finally watched it on DVD and enjoyed it. Yes, the film is absolutely Hollywood product - overproduced, simplistic, and loaded with easily identifiable villains and hero(ine)s, but I loved the performances and characters.
The Help (2011) - I can't believe it took me this long to watch this movie...SO good!

A book worth reading...
“To live every day as if it had been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To feel the joy of life, as Eve felt the joy of life. To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to.”
Pet, Dogs Love
Favorite Pet Related Book: Garth Stein’s The Art of Racing in the Rain Enzo, one of the lead characters, was so inspiring that I wrote a review from my veterinary perspectives (Could Enzo From The Art of Racing in The Rain Have Lived More Comfortably As A Senior Dog) that was featured in Stein’s quarterly newsletter.
The Only Dog Books You'll Ever Need to Own have and still cant bring myself to read it after loosing mine after 17 yrs!
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, and up-an-coming race car driver. A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty and hope.
