I really enjoyed the "Benefit" chapter because it was not biased.  I think the author chose to make the point of view not one of the main three to show the entire benefit.  Aibileen, Skeeter, and Minny was not involved in every activity or present during them, so giving an overview of the benefit was essential.  I think I enjoyed this more because it showed what the other individuals were thinking or observing that wasn't a narrator in the book.  I also like how it emphasized Miss Celia because she was the character I found to be the most interesting.  The author did a great job on this chapter specifically!

In the benefit chapter Stockett chose to take an outside prospective vs. the first person prospective she had used throughout the book. I think she chose this so she could change focus. The majority of the chapter is on Celia and the commotion her dress caused. It would have been difficult to do this without jumping from character to character. If she had stuck to her original format the story of the benefit would have had to ether be brief or consume several chapters, possibly losing the focus as the story jumped around. I think it was a good choice; it kept the story tight, even if it was a bit off putting till you realized the change had ben made. It definitely allowed for a more complete picture than you would have gotten otherwise, allowing for easy sag-ways in a seen ware almost every major character in the book is present.
