The Help

So I recently finished the book The Help and really enjoyed it.  It was a quick read and about an interesting subject.  I mean I have seen movies that have black maids and you can make some assumptions about their lives but this book gave much more insight.  It was good to hear that perspective and the characters were easy to relate to.  Though a fictional tale, it was educational and inspiring.

I also just watched the movie since I was curious about all the awards buzz and wanted to see how they interpreted the story.  It was also quite good and very well acted.  However it was different from the book and seemed lighter.  It had all the same serious undertones but the book seemed to express more of the stress and fear of the maids and their lives.  Both were good in their own right.  Check them out if you haven’t yet…
