Great Story! Characters are well developed and believable. The book had to be a good read but the audiobook, with such great narration, brings the reader right into the middle of the story.
I read this book right after it was released, before I had even heard anything about it. I immediately told all fellow readers to read it. When I wasn't reading this book, I was listening to it...and vice-versa. I loved it. I thought the writing was terrific and the story a good one. I admired the strength of the women as well as their kindnesses and loyalty. I thought the production was terrific, and liked the different narrators. I read a lot of books and this will definitely be at the top of my list for a while.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Help. As I listened to the story, I was tranported to Missippi during the early 1960s. I rank it as the best audio book in my library.
I absolutely adored this book. It was the best listen I have had in years. Some books are better read in print, this one is best heard. It was superbly narrated, the voices rich, the plot riveting. I was touched by it.
Seldom does one find a novel with a wonderful combination of setting, plot, characters, and style. 'The Help' provides all of these. Add to this the rare combination of multiple narrators who have a wide range of accents, distinctive voices, and superb diction and you have the perfect narrated novel. Don't miss this one!
I loved this book and the characters. And it was better to listen to than to read it, because there were separate narrators for the different characters which made it seem like you were overhearing what they said. Loved every minute of it and was sad to have it end.
This is a well-written, beautifully-read, amazing and entertaining book. I didn't want it to end.
Read it - everybody!
I read / listen to tons of books, but not many that are memorable. I listened to this one over the course of several long car trips, just finished it yesterday. Laughed and cried all in the same trip! The narrarators are great, acting more than reading, and the author did such a good job with the characters that they really come alive.
One of the few books I can honestly say I enjoyed more listening to, rather than reading. Amazing narration, amazing story!
