The Help is on the Way


"Have you read The Help, yet?"
That's what everyone said to me that had read it, and now here I am saying it to you.
Have you read it?
You should read it.

I saw the preview for it a couple of weeks ago, and I can't stop thinking about it.

When I read the book I did not think it was a comedy.
At all.
Not even close.
I even told people that I didn't think I was going to be able to watch the movie...I can read about bad things happening to good people a lot easier than I can watch them on screen.
Anybody else?
And now I'm looking forward to the movie.
A lot.
Like I wish it was opening this weekend.
But it opens in August when Bruce will be climbing some mountain somewhere.
Wanna go with me?
What do you think?
I'm texting a babysitter right now.


  1. Haven't heard of this one . . I"ll have to read it. Sounds good.

  2. Never heard of it but since I can so relate - lived in Ala. for 3 years in the late 60's ( I was just a baby then - not -) I'm in for the movie if you are serious - I must read the book - today - thanks for sharing

  3. LOVE this book. could not put it down.

    and when it was over, i could NOT stop thinking about it.

    the whole thing just consumed my brain.

    when i was walking by the theater a few months ago i saw the poster and just about had a coronary. saw the preview a week later.

    i think they cast it SO well.

    i hope the movie lives up to my expectations. but i CANT WAIT.

  4. and goosebumps from watching the preview again. so. good.

  5. I just finished The Pioneer Woman's book last night, and The Help is ready and waiting on my Nook to be next!

  6. Marvelous read!! In was wondering why you used the word comedy? So I watched the trailer and I do like how they lightened it. Made me tense, made nervous, made me sad, proud for the maids. My mom lived it, stationed in the south during WWII. Wish I could book club with you! Enjoy! Janice

  7. I loved 'The Help' ... I literally had to make myself put it down (life just kept getting in the way! ;) I'm excited about the movie as well & I'd love to go with you! That would be great but since Kansas & WV are miles apart I will share it with good friends here in the Mountain State & I suspect you'll do the same! Enjoy your Sunday my friend!

  8. i just finished this book!!! blogged about it yesterday actually and used the very same line "i can't stop thinking about it." and i truly can't stop thinking about it!! i wanted it to go on and on and on. so sad when it ended. first time i saw the trailer and i'm in tears. cannot wait for the movie.

  9. LOVED this book, one of my all time favorites....and I'm in for the movie!

  10. could not put that book down. loved it. im not a "movie" girl, but i will go see this one!

  11. I loved the book too! Never considered it a comedy and kept thinking about how scary it must have been, and how brave, for those ladies to write their stories with the chance they would be caught. The domino effect really made me think - scary that people could have such power over others. I did not know it was coming out in movie form! Can't wait to see it now and would love to go with you but I live in Texas! Have you read Water for Elephants? I enjoyed it so much too.

  12. Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt is a good book too. Not as good as The Help but a good read.
    The Help is one of those books that you can't stop thinking about-great book!
