This morning I started reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It’s about to be released (is released?) as a movie, and it’s on my list to see. My roommate Meg came home with the book about a week ago and has been raving ever since. We have a little bit of different taste in books – which I realized during the Book Thief recommendation of 2010 – but this one seems to be down both our alleys. Stockett’s opening narrator, Aibilene, is lovable, funny, and complex. I look forward to meeting the other narrators and finishing this book as quickly as Meg did.
What are you reading these days?
