The Help by Kathryn Sockett
A friend asked me to read this book and after we both read it we would go watch the movie. I have to say this book is predictable and not very interesting. It lacks dimension and depth. It starts very slow, somewhere in the middle it picks up, but ends on a very flat note. There are so many directions a book about racism and oppression can go but Kathryn Sockett stayed very benign. Kathryn Sockett even has the nerve to compare one of the main characters to Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird.
