I loved this book!!! Having multiple narrators worked extremely well - it gave me a better picture of the characters. And the book itself - wow! I'm from NYC and came of age in the 60s. I never witnessed theses types of actions personally, but I know they existed. We can never forget that this happened and how terrible an era in our history this was...
I was delighted all the way through this book. The characters and the voices that portray them ring true, the story is heartening and satisfying without being treakly or smarmy. I loved it!
This is a wonderful book! It has made a slow climb up the Best Seller list due to recommendations vs. publicity. The characters have depth and texture, the narrators capture the essence of each. I had never heard of this author, nor did the 1960's south interest me, but this is more a story about people; relationships;and courage. I have recommended this book to many friends, which I am usually hesitant to do as people have such different tastes. This is a worthy listen!!!
The Help is a fascinating novel and the narrators enhance the novel with their expressive and excellent performances. I laughed and cried, and thoroughly enjoyed every listening minute. This is one that is not to be missed!
I loved this book and all of the characters in it. I know each one of them! Any southerner of a certain age will recognize someone in it.
I travel alot and do many audiobooks, and this is now one of my favorites. I loved the story and the narrators. I looked forward to my drive to catch up with the story! I didn't want it to end. Great book!!
The book that hooked me as a listener was "The Secret Life of Bees" and the narrator was Jenna Lamia. I have listened to every one of her narrations and this one rings true. Incredible writing, engaging speakers and multiple excellent narrators makes this a top 5 for me. Thank you Kathryn Stockett.
After I finished this book I just had to come back here and write about it. This book is the kind of book that when you finish it. . you want more. I also missed the characters . . . like they were real people! It's kind of funny. I hope Ms. Stockett has plans for more books because I really really enjoyed this one. Also,I'd love to have something else read by the narrators. They were just fabulous. It's just an all around great audio book. Great story, sometimes sad, sometimes happy, and a great cast of narrators that really pull you into their world.
I laughed and I cried. Any book that can do that is a winner for me!!
This book was awesome! I found myself canceling plans so I could keep listening. Definitely a very good listen!
