The Help   Leave a comment

I just finished reading the book “The Help” by Kathryn Strockett and I have to say it took me four months to get myself through it.
Once I had finished, I thought, okay that was a decent book, but I found it to be very dry in most of it and it was hard to keep interested in it.
a couple of my family members have read it and thought it was great so my sister bought it for me for my birthday in May.
I wouldn’t say it was great.
It was decent and the story was a good one.
But like I said, it was very boring through a lot of it

Still I’m glad I finished it and it is finally over with.
now I can go on to something else that is a bit more entertaining.

Not to say I would never read it again because one day I might.
I just don’t think people telling me how great it was, did anything for the book.
Obviously my idea of great and theirs is two different things.
And 95% of the time if someone tells me something is great and I should read it or see the movie….95% of the time, I am always disappointed.
