Book Review - The Help

I'm over at the Burrow today reviewing Kathryn Stockett's debut novel The Help and talking about how as writers we have a unique opportunity to impact the way people think and possibly behave.

Run over and check it out. (link) I'll be interested to hear your thoughts!

Back here Thursday. Til then~ <3

Thank you for the excellent review, Leigh.
I started reading the book today, and am struck by how much it reminded me of my favourite book (To Kill a Mockingbird). Just two chapters into the book, but I am already drawing parallels with India Today ;-)

Thanks, guys! And Rayna, that's really cool. It's interesting how certain human behaviors can be universal. Thanks again for asking me to do this~ :o) <3

@Tracy-it's easy to forget or lose sight of. At least for me~ :o)
Thanks, Mel~ :o) <3

Tracy said...

Great review! That's a lot how I feel about The Mockingbirds. I was afraid because the story centered around a date rape scenario that it would come across as preachy, but that was soooo not the case. I agree that the best books are the ones that open our eyes a little.

LTM said...

Thanks, Tracy! I'd probably be a little hesitant w/Mockingbirds, too. Since becoming a mother of two little girls, I've discovered my reaction to things has really changed. :p

But you're so right about what makes books "best"~ <3
