Our book club this month was the best ever. All five members showed up and four of us read the book. I enjoyed The Help and I admire Kathryn Stockett for plowing on even after getting over 50 rejections from agents/editors. It was well written and evoked empathy and humor. I found a list of questions on Book Browse and our discussions were based on those. Our favorite character was Minny with Skeeter coming in second. We had a long discussion on whether a person's character is shaped by the times in which they live. We felt it wasn't so much the times but the people around us. Skeeter was the one who was "color blind," but she moved away from the town for a while to attend college and had a different perspective. None of us liked the idea of the "pie." My favorite laugh-out-loud page is 115 - Skeeter's worse date ever.
