I was uncomfortable with the tone of the book I felt that the author played to very stereotypical themes and gave the characters especially the African American ones very inappropriate and obvious voices and structure in terms constructing their mental character I understand that the author wrote much of this as a result of her experiences growing up in the south in the 1960 s and that it may seem authentic to her and that she was even trying to be respectful of the people and the time but ultimately I thought that it was written from a very narrow idealized almost childish perspective of race relations without a true appreciation of the humanity and soul of the characters And the ultimate theme message ie why we re all the same there s no difference between us after all only reinforced my feeling that this is written from someone who has a very undeveloped or underdeveloped concept of race and race relations in the United States The author would benefit from exploring authentic African American voices Richard Wright James Baldwin Zora Neale Hurston Langston Hughes Toni Morrison Alice Walker Maya Angelou and understanding the scope range and most important the foundation of the emotions genuine African American characters express as a result of their journey as a people in the US hope frustration drive passion anger happiness sadness depression joy

While it was a well written effort I didn t find it as breathtaking as the rest of the world It or less rubbed me the wrong way It reads like the musings of a white woman attempting to have an uncomfortable conversation without really wanting to be uncomfortable It s incredibly hard to write with integrity about race and be completely honest and vulnerable The author failed to make me believe she was doing anything beyond a show tell And if her intent isn t anything greater then it makes this book all the pandering to the white imagination of what it must have been like to be the help during that era It s passive self reflection at best and utterly uselessThe national fascination with this book makes me sick It makes me think of my grandmother who was the help to many white families for well over 50 years Her stories aren t too different from those told in this book but they are hers to tell If she were alive today I don t believe she would praise Stockett s book In fact I think she we would be horrified at the thought that her years of hard work in some cases for some very horrible people would be reduced to some wannabe feel good story of the past
