Last week, I completed the novel, after carrying it around and reading it every chance I got for 6 days. I'm adding it to my favorites list behind "The Color Purple," and "Their Eyes Were Watching God," and "Home Is Where The Heart Is."
I love how Kathryn Stockett wrote each chapter in that particular character's voice, allowing me to connect them individually.
Now, I can hardly wait for a break in our schedules, so I can go see the movie. I want to hear Aibileen tell Mae Mobley how good and special she is, as well as hear Hilly scream when she finds out what was in that pie! I can't decide if Aibileen or Minny is my favorite, but I know for sure Hilly is my least favorite character.
Have you read the book, or seen the movie yet? What did you think about either? Who are you favorite characters? Don't worry, I don't mind you telling.
