I finished reading "The Help" last night and am so glad I read it before watching the movie. It makes me look that much forward to watching it (and the awesome cast). I had lunch with my friend last month and she recommended that I read the book because it's "really good."
It is such a page turner and I love how they have three different points of view. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for something good to read. It's a book that really makes you think, too.
