I figured we could do three at a time.

Who was your favorite character? Why?

I liked all of them. They all seem so authentic. I love Minny's spunkiness even though it gets her into trouble. It is such a hoot that one of her daughters is growing up to be just like her.

What do you think motivated Hilly? On the one hand she is terribly cruel to Aibileen and her own help, as well as to Skeeter once she realizes that she can’t control her. Yet she’s a wonderful mother. Do you think that one can be a good mother but, at the same time, a deeply flawed person?

Hilly is so interesting. She apparently has some deep insecurities to make her so mean and controlling to almost everyone she has contact with. I think her being a good mother shows us her soft side. And the fact that she was rejected by Celia's husband has probably affected her deeply too.

Like Hilly, Skeeter’s mother is a prime example of someone deeply flawed yet somewhat sympathetic...See More

I liked Aibileen the best. She was so smart and so loyal. Her stories to Mae Mobley were wonderful. She was a good friend to everyone, kind. I also liked that others came to her for her special prayer power.
