Marston Meysey book Group, December 2011 The book appealed to nearly all members of the group. Those of us who read it for the second time found it as captivating as the first time. We were drawn to the main characters who are vividly depicted and felt empathy for them as they struggled bravely to achieve their goal. The obvious point of discussion is racism. Why does racism happen? Were white women like Hilly the product of the society they lived in or were they inherently bad? What about racism in our own country? It might be interesting for future readers to read "An Open Statement for the Fans of The Help", written by the Association of Black Women Historians. (Their website is ABWH). The members of the Association express very strong views on both the book and the film. We would strongly recommend "The Help" to reading groups. Star rating: 4,5 out of 5
