in two hours. That said, while I liked the movie, the book was far more enjoyable. The author made clever use of the three narrators. At first,
I thought I might be put off by that choice, but once you adjust to the different voices, the rhythm adds an element to the book that a single point-
of-view wouldn't have provided. The three principal characters speak for themselves.
There are profoundly moving moments in the book and the movie. There are some surprising passages. Kathryn Stockett's humor is a riot. I was
reminded of some of the funniest lines in Steel Magnolias, but I think that the humor is much more deftly handled in this book.
I wish that I had written The Help. I'm glad that I read it. What a great book!
(Vernacular) language is beautifully employed to portray the protagonists taking turns telling the story so compellingly.
