The Help

Friday after my voice lesson, I usually like to go shopping by myself and have some Jenn time. I was at Costco, and I always like to browse around at the book section. "The Help" was featured as this season's book, and I have no idea what it's about. I usually only read fantasy book, Harry Potter, Leven Thumps, Fableheaven... etc. O, and Twilight series of course.

Anyway, I picked up the book and immediate after, this super excited lady walked up and said "This book is sooo good, you should read it." I then asked, " What is it about?" She was so sweet and basically gave me a load down on the book summery without giving away too much. I said thank you, and she was all smiles then moved on with her shopping. As I opened the book to read the summery, another lady walked by, pointed at the book. "OH! That's a very good one~!"

I was sold. HAHA. IF two random lady tells me it's good, why not give it a try. I bought the book, and I read about 70 pages, and I liked it so far. Although the book was written in the 1st person style, and it is written as how the southern United States people would talk. It took me a while to get used to it.

I thought learning English was hard,  it's just took me a little while to understand all of the " Ain't, I's, they's.. etc"  Here is an example, " Law help me, but something's gone have to be done."

so far so good, I like the stories, and learning about the Help's in Mississippi during the 60's.

I shall report back.
