I had seen the movie on an international flight and wasn't sure how I would enjoy the book as I usually prefer to read before seeing!
Anyway, I loved the story and of course the characters were brought so much more alive than in the film. Aibileen and Minny and Skeeter were well described and I could visualise them and their angst at what may happen if they were found it. I loved the way the story was told from each of their viewpoints and could hardly put the book down as I wanted to find out what would happen next; and then I was disappointed to come to the end.
There is no way this book could ever have been published in the era in which it was set and it was good to see there has been some progress in inter-race relations in the 50 years since - we still have a long way to go though!
