    PDF/EPUB Kathryn Stockett ï The Help ePUB Î ï help download, The Help EpubI have this terrible dreary feeling in my diaphragm area this morning and I’m not positive what it’s about but I blame some of it on this book which I am not going to finish I have a friend who is mad at me right now for liking stupid stuff but the thing is that I do like stupid stuff sometimes and I think it would be really boring to only like smart things What I don’t like is when smart or even middle brained writers take an important topic and make it petty through guessing about what they don’t know I can list you any number of these writers who would be fine if they weren't reaching into topics about which they have no personal experience incidentally all writers I'm pretty sure my angry friend loves For example The Lovely Bones The Kite Runner Water for Elephants Memoirs of a Geisha etc These are th

    PDF/EPUB Kathryn Stockett ï The Help ePUB Î ï help download, The Help EpubI was uncomfortable with the tone of the book; I felt that the author played to very stereotypical themes and gave the characters especially the African American ones very inappropriate and obvious voices and structure in terms constructing their mental character I understand that the author wrote much of this as a result of her experiences growing up in the south in the 1960's and that it may seem authentic to her and that she was even trying to be respectful of the people and the time; but ultimately I thought that it was written from a very narrow idealized almost childish perspective of race relations without a true appreciation of the humanity and soul of the characters And the ultimate theme message ie why we're all the same there's no difference between us after all only reinforced my feeling that this is written from someone who has a very undeveloped or underdeveloped concept of race and race relations in the

    PDF/EPUB Kathryn Stockett ï The Help ePUB Î ï help download, The Help EpubHere is an illustrative tale of what it was like to be a black maid during the civil rights movement of the 1960s in racially conflicted Mississippi There is such deep history in the blackwhite relationship and this story beautifully shows the complex spectrum not only the hate abuse mistrust but the love attachment dependence Stockett includes this uote by Howell Raines in her personal except at the end of the novel There is no trickier subject for a writer from the South than that of affection between a black person and a white one in the uneual world of segregation For the dishonesty upon which a society is founded makes every emotion suspect makes it impossible to know whether what flowed between two people was honest feeling or pity or pragmatism An elouent way to describe Stockett's intentions for this novel I know most reviews will probably focus on the racial relationships in the book but to me the most haunting

    PDF/EPUB Kathryn Stockett ï The Help ePUB Î ï help download, The Help EpubWhile it was a well written effort I didn't find it as breathtaking as the rest of the world It or less rubbed me the wrong way It reads like the musings of a white woman attempting to have an uncomfortable conversation without really wanting to be uncomfortable It's incredibly hard to write with integrity about race and be completely honest and vulnerable The author failed to make me believe she was doing anything beyond a show tell And if her intent isn't anything greater then it makes this book all the pandering to the white imagination of what it must have been like to be the help during that era It's passive self reflection at best and utterly uselessThe nationa

    PDF/EPUB Kathryn Stockett ï The Help ePUB Î ï help download, The Help EpubThe Kindle DX I ordered is galloping to the rescue today AND for all the book purists which would include me this is a need rather than a want Post several eye surgeries I'm just plain sick of struggling to read the words on a pageHowever despite the visual challenges I read all 451 pages of The Help yesterday Clearly the book held my interest However I spent last night pondering why the book wasn't as good as my nonstop reading would indicate What was wrong? Most of all I think it was the book's ambivalent tone In brief a white woman Miss Skeeter Phelan one of Jackson Mississippi's socially elite convinces a number of the African American maids to tell her their story What goes on in the homes of the upper crust? How do these women really treat their maids? Though the book would be published anonymously an

    PDF/EPUB Kathryn Stockett ï The Help ePUB Î ï help download, The Help Epub“Ever morning until you dead in the ground you gone have to make this decision You gone have to ask yourself Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today?”Color me surprised I’m not one to read many historical fictions especially when they don’t include any fantasy elements They read like nonfiction and nonfiction is only good for me if I’m in need of sleep B butThe Help is different It doesn’t only describe the life of housemaids in the second half of the 20th century in Mississippi; it’s overflowing with raw emotion It doesn’t put every white person in a box and every black person in another It underlines the difference of thought between people but also how similar we actually all are We all want to live our lives the best way possible and be treated with respect“You is kind You is smart You is important”I really felt it when Aibilee

    PDF/EPUB Kathryn Stockett ï The Help ePUB Î ï help download, The Help Epubenthusiasm this book and i almost never met and that would have been tragic the fault is mostly mine i mean the book made no secret of its existence a billion weeks on the best seller list every third customer asking for it at work displays and reviews and people on here praising it to the heavens it practically spread its legs for me but i just kept walking i figured it was something for the ladies like sex and the city which i don't have to have ever seen an episode of to know that it's not something i would enjoy i figured that this book was on the ladder one rung above chick lit so i am to blame for my snobbish dismissiveness but have you seen this cover?? what is with that sickroom color scheme? and i hate those stupid little birds what is chip kidd so busy doing that he can't just pop over here and lend a hand?? it is not my fault for thinking it was a crappy book when that cover wanted me to think it i
