I just finished reading this book and have to admit that I
really liked it... except for the ending. I was expecting a
little more closure to some of the key characters like Aibeleen,
Hilly, Minny, and Skeeter. I am not a bad person but was soooo
getting ready to see Ms. Hilly suffer all the bad things she did
to others and didn't get that. So a little disappointed there. I
was also a little disappointed because I was in a high mode with
all the drama and all of the sudden the book ended! I couldn't
believe when I saw the acknowledgments page. I was ready to read
100 more pages if she would've given them to me! That's how good
and entertaining it was! But unfortunately I was left hanging,
craving for more :(
I also wanted to see what Minny did with her life and even
wanted see Aibeleen find a real job as a writer. I didn't want
the book to end with Aibeleen just being fired! I mean, common!
What kind of an ending is that? I wanted to see more positive
thngs to happen.
I just hope there is a sequel to this book because I think the
author really left me hanging with that ending.
