The Help (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.685

The Help" is the phenomenal international bestseller (that inspired the Oscar nominated film) by Kathryn Stockett. Enter a vanished and unjust world: Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Where black maids raise white children, but aren't trusted not to steal the silver...There's Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child and nursing the hurt caused by her own son's tragic death; Minny, whose cooking is nearly as sassy as her tongue; and white Miss Skeeter, home from College, who wants to know why her beloved maid has disappeared. Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny. No one would believe they'd be friends; fewer still would tolerate it. But as each woman finds the courage to cross boundaries, they come to depend and rely upon one another. Each is in a search of a truth. And together they have an extraordinary story to tell...

A Compulsive Page-Turner

It is an amazing novel, a modern classic which can in all aspects be compared to writings of HarperLee"To Kill a MockingBird".

This wonderfully written book,which dates back to 1962,is about a white woman,Miss Skeeter, home from college who is curious and anxious about her own maid-cum-nanny, Constantine who has simply vanished from her life. But, gradually she gets interested in the lives of the black maids in working in the neighbouring white families and decides to write a book depicting their lives,their plight,their emotions,their hopes and aspirations.

It is an amazing novel, a modern classic which can in all aspects be compared to writings of HarperLee"To Kill a MockingBird".

This wonderfully written book,which dates back to 1962,is about a white woman,Miss Skeeter, home from college who is curious and anxious about her own maid-cum-nanny, Constantine who has simply vanished from her life. But, gradually she gets interested in the lives of the black maids in working in the neighbouring white families and decides to write a book depicting their lives,their plight,their emotions,their hopes and aspirations.

She convinces these maids to share their stories of distrust, humiliation,hardwork as well as the bondings they share with the kids they have brought up over the years. These stories would showcase the real ugly face of the well cultured and refined society in those times, the times when the black maids were fully entrusted to take care of the children, to clean every corner of the house, to cook food but were still considered as belonging to an inferior race.
The love and affection with which Aibeleen raises her seventeenth white child,Mae Mobley(all the time hollering colic baby), admidst the hurt of her own lost son and the love bestowed upon Miss Sketeer by her own maid,Constantine trully reflect the selfless love and emotions of these maids.
The lives of three main characters of the book: Miss Sketeer, Aibeleen and Minny, a terrific cook, whose sassy tongue and strong personality compensates or rather negates her excellent cooking abilities; are wonderfully interwoven among themselves, to give it a shape of a masterfully plotted novel, thus illminating the real and strange history of South America.
It brings forth the real essence of earlier United States and the racist platform from which it has evolved and uplifted itself to build its present day image as a "land of hopes and dreams".
I recommend this book as a must read book of the year.It is almost unbelievable that this is Kathryn Stockett's debut novel and I will most certainly look forward to her next work.

Law! This is good...

The Help reached me within days of ordering. In perfect condition and good print. And also, a bookmark! Thanks Flipkart.. I enjoy all your bookmarks.. Collecting them has turned into a hobby!
It was the half seen movie that prompted me to look for this book. This is the story of 3 women. Two Black and One White. This is a story of rebellion, a silent rebellion, in face of hypocrisies of the world. The book revolves around the life of the white lady Skeeter who is untouched by the double standards of the society she lives in. A society where white women have no qualms about having black wom...

It was the half seen movie that prompted me to look for this book. This is the story of 3 women. Two Black and One White. This is a story of rebellion, a silent rebellion, in face of hypocrisies of the world. The book revolves around the life of the white lady Skeeter who is untouched by the double standards of the society she lives in. A society where white women have no qualms about having black women take care of their children but look down at them in suspicion over silver plates and spoons. Skeeter is left in suspicion over the sudden absence of Constantine, the black lady who raised her. Her quest for answers takes her to Aibileen and Minny. It is through their lives, she sees the other side. The Black side.
Skeeter coaxes Aibileen to write a book about her experiences working for a white household. To add stories of her friends.. In times where Blacks were only perceived as ???workers???, this would be a huge leap. It is story of trust and friendship.. Of wanting to do something..
It is beautiful.. Read it..

why I chose to read this book

So I had ordered my copy of the book on Saturday and I received on Sunday before 7pm,which was awesome. Now to talk about the book,the point till which I have read,The Help is quite the eye opener on how the African-American citizens were oppressed and how one single person could actually document everything and even though the language at first was a little hard to follow,I could actually empathise with the pain and suffering the main character went through. Even though I had seen a few parts of the movie which led me to buy the book and thank god I am reading it! I guess everyone should r... ()

Separately,I received the book in excellent condition.Thank you FlipKart!!

Unputdownable!!

I just finished reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
The book draws you completely into the life of three women, two of whom are the helps themselves and the other who wanted to help them in her own way. The observatory skills of the author are definitely praise worthy. Excellent capturing of Missisippi, the cuisine, the temperature,the social life , the relationship and bond between the maids and with the families they are tending to.The Help is unputdownable not in a thriller kind of way though!!

Review

On Flipkart's end. the book was packed and delivered excellently. Unfortunately, it is a very poor read indeed. Rather watch the movie, or borrow from a friend or a library - not worth purchasing.

Its 4 and half stars..

The american society so proud of their existence came a long way from being a apartheid society.

The struggle of the Afro - Americans through one woman is par excellent in terms of determination to get their rights and make their presence felt among 'fair' Americans.
