(putting on my teacher glasses)
So, for those of y’all that read the book, what did you think? Personally, my favorite aspect was the author’s tone throughout. I loved how she took the characters and really nailed down their voices. Once I started reading, I really had a hard time pulling myself away because I just got so sucked into the different story lines.
Who was your favorite character? Mine was definitely Skeeter because I could relate to her the most. I loved how she went against the grain and did exactly what she wanted to do, even though not everyone believed in her. She was just so real to me—she literally jumped right off the page! I also loved the character of Miss Celia. My heart just went out to her the whole time…some of the antics she got herself into almost brought tears to my eyes. She’s like that friend with the horrible outfit that makes your heart just twist.
The only criticism I can think of to give was that I would have liked to go into a little more depth with Skeeter’s relationship. I felt sort of like I was on the surface and wanted to go a little deeper….but I LOVED the way it ended!
