The Help

As you know The Help was on my summer reading list. It ended up being one of the last books I read on my list. I started it a little over a week ago, and instantly loved it, but hardly had time to read it. Fletcher's mom got to see a premiere showing of the movie in the middle of July and said that we had to all go see it once it came out. So we made plans to go see it on opening night. Two days before I was feeling discouraged because I had nearly 200 pages left to read and we had tickets for the 7:15 showing on Wednesday night. But I am proud to say I finished it just minutes before we left to go to the theater. I have never read a book and then seen the movie in such a close time period, and I was in awe of how much the movie matched the book. There were minor differences, but if I hadn't just finished the book I probably wouldn't have even realized. I can't say enough good things about the movie...Here is all I will say-It is one that will have you bursting with laughter and then moved to tears. It is a touching story of an unlikely friendship, and a movie that I will want to see again and again.
