This book needs to read or heard by anyone who has ever lived in the south or read about it. It humanizes and makes you feel to your very soul what the past was and how everyone involves viewed it. I was so sad when it ended--
The Help is the kind of Audiobook that you can't wait to get in the car to hear. Using 3 different voices for 3 different characters really makes you feel like you are in the South. I've recommended this book to many people.
Very good writing and narration.
Tells the "other side of the story"
What it was (is?) like to be a black maid for white families in the South, and the repercussions of speaking out about the truth of their treatment.
Absolutely wonderful book that is exquisitely read. I married a Southern women, although one more contemporary than those portrayed here, yet I see much of her and her family woven in this tale. I just loved this book.
I've listened to several books on tape - this one was excellent. The women that read the story are fantastic - the views from the different women's perspectives are portrayed well, and issues are addressed with humor and satisfaction. This will make a great movie. I recommend this book.
This book was wonderful! I could not stop listening to it. The narrators were excellent. They made it easy to tell the charactors apart. I would look for this author and narrators again!
Great story and narration.
I cant begin to say how great this book was. The characters were superb, the story line was great and it kept me wanting more. I couldnt put it down. My favorite audio book to date!
