Because this book stands on its own. This book though long, flows smoothly and kept me interested. I love the fact that the different characters in the book are read by separate people. This really does give you a feel for what some people had to endure.
Slow start that built up to a suspenseful ending. I hated for it to end and started looking for another book by the author. Really captured race relations in the Mississippi south in the early 60s.
I loved everything about this book! The characters were so fully realized and the narration by all was divine. This author's talent is amazing.
I loved every moment, every word about this book. Truly an extraordinary achievement.
The story was excellent, characters were believable, the narration phenomenal!
This is one of the best books I've either read or listened to in a long time. I am so glad I discovered it on Audible first, because I don't see how this book could have been as enjoyable without the perfect narration. I am so glad there were different narrators, not just one trying to change her voice for each character. This was such a thoughtfully intricate book, with a bittersweet ending. I loved it.
I loved "The Help". It made me laugh, it made me cry. The author paints such vivid pictures of the characters, and the readers do a great job. I was immersed in the story - I couldn't put it down, and I didn't want it to end. I highly recommend!
