[Kathryn Stockett] -- In Jackson, Mississippi, in , there are lines that are not crossed. With the civil rights movement.
It gives away the game. Even the quotes from the movie have an example of this. A conversation between her and Minnie goes like this: Celia Foote: They don't like me because of what they think I did. Minny Jackson: They don't like you 'cause they think you white trash.
Celia speaks in a proper sentence, but Minny misses the "are" in the second part of the sentence. Celia says "because," but Minny says "'cause. To attempt to be clear, I didn't have a problem that the book was in dialect. I had a problem that the book said, "This white woman speaks in an extreme dialect," and then wrote the woman's dialog not in dialect.
Aerin points out in message that I am talking about eye dialect , which is about spelling, not pronunciation, as in the example above.

In fact, some of them see it as a chance to have a fresh start. If you enjoy historical fiction, this book would suit you. If you have strong feelings about civil right and equal rights for women, you would like the views of this book.
If you like a good romance, sorry, this book really doesn't have that. It is definitely one that will stick with you! These three persons are shown as contemporary heroines which put human and specially women rights in the 60th in question and show what an amount of courage is needed to attack if not change the fixed ideas on social differences in a small provincial town of Mississipi.

Brilliant and well written show more by Pauline O'Keeffe A great read, the perfect book to read whilst sitting at the beach. The descriptions of the characters were so vivid. Some bits were hilarious whilst other parts were very moving. I would highly recommend this book. It was really hard to put this book down as it was so well written.
I can't wait until the author writes her next book. Watched the movie and I am glad to say they were fairly true to the book.
