The book showed all perspectives of the begining of the civil rights movement in MS. It is hard to believe that the "bad guy" in the book was so evil. I am sure glad that times have changed. I wish it would have ended with more closure.
I listen to books from audible on my commute every day. I find myself sometimes wishing the book would end because it just isn't compelling enough. This book was recommended by a coworker. This book is great! It was a long book, but, it was so good, it seemed to go so fast. This book gives you a lot to think about.
What an easy listen! I loved it and literally could not put my mp3 player down - I listened to it on the plane, at the gym, while washing the dishes, making lunch. It is narrated so well that it kept my attention!
I highly recommend this book. One of the best books I've read in a very long time. Could not stop listening yet, I hated to have the story end. I'm so glad I listened to the audiobook vice reading the book (although I have bought the book, as well, as a gift). The voices of each character enhance the wonderful story. I anxiously await the author's next book!!
I loved this book. This was one of my favorites. Great story and the narrators were so good. Having multiple narrators made the book come alive. I just loved it!
My commute is 100 miles/day. Even taking the beautiful coastal route, I don't think I could have survived the past 10 years w/o Audible.
I couldn't wait to listen to the next chapter, but I didn't want it to end. So good I went out and bought two hard cover copies for friends who don't "listen." I fear they won't get the full flavor, but it is still a wonderful experience.
Enjoyed this as much or more than Water for Elephants--my 2008 favorite.
I love an opportunity to learn while becoming absorbed in the story and the characters. The Help is a sad, inspiring and enriching story. The narration will have you hearing the character's voices long after the book has ended, all the while, learning more about our nation's trying civil rights movement. I highly recommend The Help.
