4.5 HAD ME HOOKED HONESTBAZ | 14/09/2012 | See all HONESTBAZ's reviews (299) Brilliant! A book of three main characters that are fantasticly presented via their own view point as well as that of the other 2. This is most interestingly done,though it may've come across as a bit odd in the opinion of some reviewers. The author doesn't claim to know what really went through the minds of the home helps in this era,as she states at the end of the book,but she does have a brilliant way with words and brings these characters to life. There are many other characters seen through the main character's eyes that will have you smiling and feeling contempt,with moments that will be hard to forget. The way it's written is as spoken,so those characters with strong accents might test some readers for a while,but i soon grew to love it.It seems few people didn't like this book,i'm not surprised as it's unique and i was always looking forward to getting back to it. I'll remember THE HELP for some time.
