So…I’m FINALLY posting about this because I FINALLY got around to reading this book!
I absolutely loved this book. I watched the movie awhile ago and usually I like to read the book first, but I couldn’t wait! I was just so busy I didn’t get to read it first. I loved both…but as usual I liked the book better. It was just so much more in detail and had way more to the story line. I felt like they left a lot out in the movie. I cried during both…it’s me.
I do think they picked really good people to play the characters in the book though. I didn’t think anyone was off at all. So read the book and go see the movie!!!
For those of you that don’t know, the book is about maids in the 1960’s in Jackson, Mississippi. A white girl decides to befriend some of them and write a book about what it’s like to be a maid…the good things and the bad things and how they are treated. It is really interesting and you definitely feel a wide range of emotions when reading this book.
