With many great new books each year one always stands out and for me it was this story enhanced by the narrators,whom I believe took it to the next level. Its a must listen too.
Kudos to the author and narrators on a great book. I hated for the book to end. We named a room in our house the Relaxing Room in honor of Skeeter, Avaline and Minnie. I have listened to over 300 books on audio and this is hands down one of the best ever.
One of the best books I have read in my lifetime. Although I listen vs read mostly out of convenience, I would highly recommend the audiobook. This was the best narration I've encountered in the countless audiobooks I've listened to and the separate narrators paint a perfect picture of each character.
The narration of this book made you feel that you were right there in the story. The characters were brought to life with such brilliance. I have recommended this to several of my friends.
A wonderfully written first book...a book within a book...what was it like if you lived in Mississippi in 1962, wore a white uniform, white hose and worked for a white Junior League Magnolia? Stockett uses her main characters, speaking in their dialect, to tell you their story and the story if the Civil Rights movement of the time. Independent women take a "giant step" for mankind and you, the listener, are totally engrossed from page one. I can't imagine NOT listening to this book to get the FULL affect!
