“The Help” – Kathryn Stockett (3/5 ★)

“The Help” is an incredibly touching, deep kind of story, for which I found that it’s even more of a pity that it ended up being one of those books that you’d need to read in as close to 1 sitting as possible. The way it is written is bustling with character, each chapter written by a different person following with the style of their actual spoken language. What bothered me in the beginning & took quite a bit of time to get used to, has finally proven to be the cherry on top of the storytelling.

Nevertheless, it simply doesn’t manage to be captivating enough up until the last 50-100 pages (it took me 7 weeks to get through it, even though I’m usually a fast reader -_- I just couldn’t be bothered to pick it up again at times). I’d still suggest it as an enjoyable read, if you were to take it along to some holidays where a lot of reading could be done at once. Now off to watch the movie & hoping that it has taken more advantage of the potential of what great of a story it could have been if it were presented in a bit of a different way.

★★★☆☆ (3/5)
