Read the BOOK before you watch the MOVIE!
I decided to read “The Help” after all the hype it got from the media and the movie.
To be honest, I watched the movie first and I usually prefer the book than the movie. But in this case, even though I liked it, I frankly prefer the movie.
Sometimes, it lost me, I would leave the book after reading a few chapters and go read another book, taking so much hard work to start reading it again.
What might have made me finish it, was the simple notion of comparing the movie and the book:
- How different they are?
- What was emitted?
- What detail was added?
So, not to spoil it on others! It ended up with a disappointment, the movie was BETTER.
As always I like to post some quotes I liked from the book, I have written my favourite at the top 😀 But here below are some more.
“Wasn’t that the point of the book? For women to realize, We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I’d thought.”
“Ever morning, until you dead in the ground, you gone have to make this decision. You gone have to ask yourself, “Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today?”
“All I’m saying is, kindness don’t have no boundaries.”
“I’m sorry, but were you dropped on your head as an infant?”“I used to believe in em (lines). I don’t anymore. They in our heads. Lines between black and white ain’t there neither. Some folks just made those up, long time ago.”
