    Description

    Set in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi, The Help follows the stories of three African-American maids who decide to take their destinies in their own hand and challenge the system.

    Summary Of The Book

    Aibleen, a black woman, has worked in white-households all her life. She is now helping raise her seventeenth white child. Though she is completely devoted to it, her heart is astir after the loss of her own son. Skeeter has returned home from college only to find that her beloved maid, Constantine, has been fired and no one is willing to tell why.

    Meanwhile, Ailbeen’s friend Minny works in the neighbourhood and has trouble staying in one job for long. She finally moves in with a family which is new in town and has its own ways of life.
    As the story unfolds, lives of these women intersect and they come together to confront the system that has wronged them for long.

    The Help received much acclaim upon its release in 2009 and remained on the The New York Times bestseller list for one hundred weeks. It was adapted to a major motion picture in 2011.

    Could be way better

    When you order a book you expect it to come in good shape. The seller packed it in such a disgusting way the sides of the book got Folded. And any book lover wants his books new forever. Very bad experience

    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.

    something to laugh , enjoy but also to look into

    from the very first pages, you will rejoice this book, laughing into the accent, with the simplicity the thoughts of the 'helps' have been reflected like how celia foote is a less hot n more make-up version of Marilyn Monroe....but within all this commotion, something serious, highly sentimental goes on n you never lose a connection to any of the principal characters.A MUST READ for this generation and if you enjoy this, another recommendation-To Kill a Mocking Bird-Harper Lee a beautiful cla...
