The Help Book Summary

The #1 New York Times bestselling novel and basis for the Academy Award-winning film—a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don’t—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, who’s always taken orders quietly, but lately she’s unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She’s full of ambition, but without a husband, she’s considered a failure.

Together, these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town...

The Help - Kathryn Stockett Book Reviews

  • The Help (PrevailingCity)

    The help is so inspiring too stand up for each other and be recognized as equals, despite the color of our skin. Ho, and LADY who said it was thumbs down show some respect to good books.
  • Eh (Playittilitsho)

    I think it has a problem with it going from 0 to 100 too quick without any real buildup, the beginning is slow, and there’s a lot of boring parts, but the good parts are extremely good
  • Best Book Ever (Jdhhgrbvfv)

    This book has brought a bright spotlight on to the Civil Rights Movement as its amazing storytelling by Kathryn Stockett is shown. I recommend this book to everyone over the age of 12
  • The Best Novel Ever Written (boeissostrange)

    I read The Help when I was 17, after having watched it quite a few times. Unfortunately, because I had watched the motion picture first, I envisioned the characters wrongly as I read the book. Since reading it the first time in 2017, I have read it again and again a total of eight times. Every time I re-read it, I get a different perspective than the last. I become more attached to Skeeter, Aibileen, and Minny. To Celia, and Lou Anne. To Louvenia, Winnie, and all of the other maids. It makes me cry every time I read it. When I watch the movie, I cry even harder knowing the background. This novel speaks wonders and volumes about how much love there was, how much hate there was, and how much power one book can cause. Kathryn Stockett has blessed us all with this magnificent, incredible and detailed tome that paints the most beautiful, and in some ways damning, images. I will always love this book, and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thank you Mrs. Stockett. Your book has touched my life, and will forever remain in my life.
  • Loved it (AAJean5)

    Loved the story and loved the characters. They were all unique and had their own voice, which made for an engaging read. I looked forward to hearing each character’s perspective, and I liked seeing how they were all connected throughout the story.
  • In love (Kacey🦄)

    I absolutely love this book, it has a special place in my heart ❤️
  • A MUST Read (10jen10)

    Intense, has some funny parts, sad parts, relatable but mostly it gives you a whole different perspective on things. I just finished the book and I’m off to go see the movies now!
  • AMAZING!!! (Xhzhsbdhdndjbsbsbhdffje)

    Been reading it in my supervised study class which is about 100 min. And I'm almost done and it's so good!! One thing that amazes me is I NEVER get emotional about a book, or a movie, and cry -no- not me. But there were countless times where my face was tearing up or flat out bailing!! The book is wonderful, keeps you hooked, but some kids won't understand, there are some words thown out there that kids won't understand, but still great book!!Whoever gives 1-3 stars, you live under a rock or you just are missing out on this!!! 😁😁😁😁😁💗💗💗 📚
  • Great book! (OonaRocks15)

    This book can really pull at your heartstrings and make you really feel for the characters! I would recommend this book to anyone!
  • Heart wrenching (Teachmeyourways)

    Just finished this amazing book! I read a lot and enjoy many genres, but very rarely does a book grab me and not let go! I was mesmerized by the stories in this book. I laughed, I cried, I became angry, I felt pity...many emotions were stirred up! I was truly sad when it ended, although not disappointed. I will miss these new friends of the heart! Bar none, one of the best books I've ever read!
