Beschreibung

***The phenomenal international bestseller that inspired the Oscar-nominated film***

Enter a vanished and unjust world: Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Where black maids raise white children, but aren't trusted not to steal the silver . . .

There's Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child and nursing the hurt caused by her own son's tragic death; Minny, whose cooking is nearly as sassy as her tongue; and white Miss Skeeter, home from College, who wants to know why her beloved maid has disappeared.

Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny. No one would believe they'd be friends; fewer still would tolerate it. But as each woman finds the courage to cross boundaries, they come to depend and rely upon one another. Each is in a search of a truth. And together they have an extraordinary story to tell...

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

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.
