Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Help (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Of all the books I read this summer, The Help was my favorite. A wonderful story about three woman, who each tell their own story as well as the story shared by all three. It is interesting to read about african american maids working for the well-to-do whites in the south of the USA in the 50s and 60s. Their perspective on things is a story seldom, if ever, told. Their wit, their charm, their humor, their anger and their heartbreaking stories will certainly move you. The white woman in this story wants to write a book about black maids in the south and is suddenly confronted by racial issues that she had never given a thought to. The danger she finds herself in simply by interviewing black maids is shocking to her (and the reader) and gives a new perspective on the racial situation at that time.
The Help is a book that will move you, infuriate you, make you laugh out loud and fascinate you. Absolutely one of the best books I've ever read!

Amanda Guimeraiz-Rath meint:
The location is more specific than 'the south of the USA'. The book makes it very clear that it takes place in Mississippi, a state historically known for its racist policies and brutality
