Oh my GOODNESS, girls!!! I am a little over a hundred pages into The Help and it's almost painful for me to put it down!
I know that Tempie has read it, I am reading it (obviously) and Erica is now reading it. Is anyone else?
I'm not going to give anything away, but these characters... I LOVE THEM!!! It's going to be really hard for me to say goodbye to these, I can already tell.
The only thing that I have to say is this...
I had NO IDEA that this kind of living was still occuring as recently as the 60's! I had no clue that "colored people" (as they call them in the book) were still practically slaves to white people then. I mean, they weren't slaves, as they were getting paid, so they were "The Help" but still... seperate bathrooms... within the same house? Come on! I can't believe it.
I love this story so much and I have to say.. I am LEARNING so much! I love it! :)
If you are reading it or have read it, I would love to know your thoughts on this as well....
