quality literature: the help

this is the one i was after when i got side-tracked by the anne rice book.  i knew it was going to be a good one and that i would enjoy it immensely.  i meant to read it a long time ago, but i think i was somewhat offput by the suggestion on the cover that it might be as good as "to kill a mockingbird."  i just can't help it!  that is THE book for me and the thought of another coming close is both thrilling and unrealistic at the same time.  anyway.  this is a solid read.  if you like literature set in the civil rights time period, you'll definitely appreciate this one.

and now i think i need to return both of these to the high school library this week, so i can pick out some more historical fiction.  after all, i have another cub scout campout this weekend.  the forecast for friday night is currently at a balmy 25 degrees farenheit.  if you don't see me here next week, you'll know that i've become a popsicle.


  1. yes I've read it too~it is good:):)

  2. At the suggestion of a friend, I listened to it on audio and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also like the "original" Anne Rice's The Witching Hour but I've not read any of her more current Christian stuff.
