I was trying to figure out why this book was such a page-turner. Yes, yes, the characters are multidimensional, engaging, likable, etc. But there is something else that Stockett did to make this book hard to put down. She didn’t wait until the end to satisfy our need for justice, but instead fed us little bits of satisfaction along the way, just to wet our appetite before she finally hit us with the grand finale: Two-Slice Hilly.
I loved the old, thick, Southern dialect she used. I’ve never seen dialog written quite like this, yet I hadn’t a lick a trouble pickin' it up. Law!
And, yikes, that’s bout all I have time for. See ya in the discussion!
