Having read both fiction and non-fiction books about the Jim Crow era in the American south, I found The Help to be one of the more detailed perspectives I've read. I am surprised at how the author depicts believeable characters such as Hilly and Aibileen. It's disgusting, however, the social norms of those times and the way in which black people were treated. It was as if they were not humans. I am also saddened by the story of Mae Mobley who, as a little white girl at age 2, only knows the unconditional love of Aibileen. Mae's own mother showed her little affection or regard. Many white children in those times were raised, lovingly, by their maids, but the hatred toward the same maids and their families continued for decades. It is very unfortunate.
I fully recommend this book. I will warn, however, that the reader should not expect an accurate account of the actual feelings of the black people described in the book. It simply is not possible for others to know the pain and madness they truly experienced.

The Help was a very emotionally touching book with a lot of controversial topics. Though the setting of the book is held in the mid 1900's we see general viewpoints that still stand today. The help is ... Read full review
