Beschreibung

In Jackson, Mississippi, there are lines that are not crossed. Black maids raise the white children, but no one trusts them not to steal the silver. Aibileen is a black maid, raising her seventeenth white child, but with a bitter heart after the death of her son. Minny is the sassiest woman in Mississippi; she can cook like nobody's business, but she can't keep her lip buttoned. And Skeeter is a white woman with a degree but no ring on her finger. Home from college, Skeeter discovers her beloved maid Constantine has disappeared without a trace. And as different as they may be, these three women will come together for a clandestine project that will put all of them at risk.

But The Help is not just about race, it's about how women, whether mothers or daughters, the help or the boss, relate to each other. It's about the dramas of domestic life: pride, competition on the cooking and home front complex emotions about the raising of young children, and that horrible feeling that those who look after your children may understand them, deal with them and love them, even, better than you . . .

Nina Warnke, Thalia-Buchhandlung Rostock

Dieses Buch habe ich geliebt! Auch im Original gut zu lesen, zeigt es so feinsinnig und warmherzig die Missstände des häuslichen Amerikas der 60er. Unglaublich, mit welch einer Selbstverständlichkeit die weiße Bevölkerung die Unterdrückung der schwarzen betrieb. Film: auch super!

I’ve seen the movie years ago and probably that’s why it took me so long to start reading this book. Usually I read a book, go watch the movie and then I complain how the movie destroyed the whole story. But because I loved the film so much, I was afraid that the book would ‘destroy’ this wonderful experience. How wrong I was. ... I’ve seen the movie years ago and probably that’s why it took me so long to start reading this book. Usually I read a book, go watch the movie and then I complain how the movie destroyed the whole story. But because I loved the film so much, I was afraid that the book would ‘destroy’ this wonderful experience. How wrong I was. After reading the book I love the movie even more, it so fittingly cast, so well done. Still I would recommend to everyone to read the book, because some parts the movie didn’t manage to get that right. Some characters are even meaner in the book and some are nicer, others where completely forgotten. What I loved most about the book where those characters, those that where forgotten, the quiet girls who weren’t racists but were as progressive as the main character. Simply said: I loved this book (and I still love the movie)!

Lesenswert, vor allem auf Englisch

Tolles Buch, man kann sich kaum entscheiden welche der 3 starken Frauen man am liebsten mag. Es lohnt sich das Buch auf Englisch zu lesen, da bei der Deutschen Übersetzung sprachliche Feinheiten verloren gehen. Die Sprache von Minny unterscheidet sich beispielsweise stark von der Skeeters.
