The Deja Vu Review [25]: Freebie!

DJVR

The Deja Vu Review is a new Sunday feature with mini-reviews from books I’ve read before I began my blog at The Book Addict’s Guide! Since I’ve been reading my whole life and only started my blog back in April of 2012, this is my opportunity to revisit some older books and share some mini-reviews of those that didn’t quite make it into the blog spotlight after the initial read.

This week’s topic:  Freebie week!

It’s a freebie week, so we’re picking WHATEVER BOOK WE WANT. I did a quick search through my Goodreads and I don’t think I’ve ever had the opportunity to talk about my feelings for The Help. So let’s, shall we?

The HelpThe Help by Kathryn Stockett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My Original GR review: This was an excellent read. It was pretty long at 522 pages, but all of them were worth it. It’s a great story about the bravery to tell the story of the accounts of the segregation of black and white in the 1950s and 60s and the maids working for the families in Mississippi. The accounts just seem so incredibly genuine and enlightening. I would definitely recommend to anyone. It’s a rich and heartwarming story.
Comments: Now, I don’t usually like historical ficiton. And I don’t usually like all the award-winning books with good messages. I always prefer easy reads haha – But The Help really was a truly great story. It took a little while to get into for me, but it was so worth it. I’d recommend it to anyone, and if you’re interested in the movie, it’s a really great adaptation of the book. That’s something I usually struggle with, so I was glad that it stayed so true to the book.
