The Help

A Novel

(12)
Twenty-two-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but it is 1962, Mississippi, and her mother will not be happy till Skeeter has a ring on her finger. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, the woman who raised her, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone.

Aibileen is a black maid, a wise, regal woman raising her seventeenth white child. Something has shifted inside her after the loss of her own son, who died while his bosses looked the other way. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken.

Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobody's business, but she can't mind her tongue, so she's lost yet another job. Minny finally finds a position working for someone too new to town to know her reputation. But her new boss has secrets of her own.

Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed.

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women- mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends-view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

„so touchy“

Milli, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien

I’ve seen the movie years ago and probably that’s why it took me so long to start reading this book. Usually I read a book, go watch the movie and then I complain how the movie destroyed the whole story. But because I loved the film so much, I was afraid that the book would ‘destroy’ this wonderful experience. How wrong I was.

After reading the book I love the movie even more, it so fittingly cast, so well done. Still I would recommend to everyone to read the book, because some parts the movie didn’t manage to get that right. Some characters are even meaner in the book and some are nicer, others where completely forgotten.

What I loved most about the book where those characters, those that where forgotten, the quiet girls who weren’t racists but were as progressive as the main character.

Simply said: I loved this book (and I still love the movie)!

von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 16.03.2016
Bewertet: anderes Format

Ein wichtiges, teilweise anrührendes, teilweise witziges Buch über die absurden Alltäglichkeiten der Rassentrennung mitten im 20. Jahrhundert. Unbedingt lesenswert.

von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Hilden am 16.03.2016
Bewertet: anderes Format

Eine ganz tolle Erzählung über Freundschaft, Herkunft, Solidarität und Mut. Ganz wunderbar! Auch im Original gut lesbar - nicht zu schwierig.

Lesenswert, vor allem auf Englisch
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 15.04.2015
Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Tolles Buch, man kann sich kaum entscheiden welche der 3 starken Frauen man am liebsten mag. Es lohnt sich das Buch auf Englisch zu lesen, da bei der Deutschen Übersetzung sprachliche Feinheiten verloren gehen. Die Sprache von Minny unterscheidet sich beispielsweise stark von der Skeeters.
