I found this book with my stuff and didn't even know that I had it. So far I really like it but it has made me feel really lazy. These maids take care of the kids, and do all the house work. After hearing about a typical day I thought wow. I would normally rate this book about a 4.5 but I thought the language (swearing) was a little bad so I dropped it to a 3.5. Other than that I loved the book. Stockett really draws you into the charactors. I sitll think that I really don't work all that hard, my bathrooms are lucky if they get cleaned once a week let alone everyday. I also wonder were the white society women really that snobby? Is that a Southern thing going to league meetings etc, and would really one person have that much power and influence as Hilly did? I did have one question about the book. On page 417 almost at the bottom,Lou Anne is telling Skeeter why she loves her maid so much "The doctors want me to go to Memphis for shock treatment...she covers her face but a tear slips through her fingers. For the depression and the ... TRIES," she whispers. What is/are the TRIES. I had never heard of that if anyone has an answer I would love to hear it.
This was my first JP book, and still one of her very best. Grabs you and doesnn't let go.
