Amazing. Simply Amazing.
This book deserves all 5 stars Goodreads allows me, and if I could give it more, I would. I began reading this book on a Friday evening, and by Monday night I was done. I could not put it down. This, from someone who starts 3 books at a time and usually has one book that I am committed too and 3 others that I'm partially into, is no understatement. The fact that this book kept me loyal for a full 3 days. It was just that good. I felt myself feeling emotional with each scene. I was anxious, nervous, afraid, glad, upset, disappointed, excited. Kathryn Stockett didn't just tell this story, she brought me, the reader, into the story. I often questioned how I would handle being the help. If I could do it. I am so excited to finally watch the movie. I have a rule - no movie watching before book reading. It always ruins it when you do!
