Read in July, 2011

This is a book I read on my mom’s kindle. I wanted to read it before seeing the movie so I instantly downloaded it and read it in about two days. I thought the book was good but I feel like the fear the main characters should have been experiencing was not portrayed as well as it should’ve been considering the climate in which the story is set. (The movie did a moderately better job of this.) However, the characters are pretty awesome. I loved hating Hilly Holbrooke and rooting for Minnie. Skeeter was relatable and funny. Who didn’t love Aibileen and Mae Mobley? Although, seriously could there be a worse name for a child Mae Mobley? I like the name Mae but they always call her by her full name and the combination is just terrible. Sorry. All in all, if you’re looking for something that explores relationships between women, give this a read
