I laughed, cried and was drawn in my Stockett's simple, but vivid descriptions. She has woven a complex thread through a volatile and moving time in our history. What a GREAT read.
The best audio presentation I have heard to date!I truly wished there would have been parts 4, 5, and 6, and 7 ... I loved it!!!
The story and the writing are wonderful. The reading is masterfully done. It is one of the best books I have read in a long time.
I lived through part of this time in Georgia and while I found so much of it dead on, I found myself realizing how little I actually knew about what was going on. Very insightful and the characters are all wonderful. Bravo!
This might be the best book I have downloaded this year. Great story, adn the characters were so wonderful. Lovable, and smart. there are so many different voices int his book it is really fun to listen to. The author and the narrator do a great job bringing the dialec to life.
It was a FABULOUS book. I was a crying mess at the end, and wanted to go inside the book and hugs them all (well, not Hilly, really). Being from Europe, I knew very little about the subject of the book, and I was mesmerized. I can't find any better word. The narration for this audiobook was so perfect, I felt like I was sitting at that kitchen table with Aibileen, Skeeter and Minny, listening to them as they were telling me that fantastic, moving story.
You would be a fool NOT to read this book. I give it 1000 stars, and I can't wait to read it again a few months (maybe in paperback).
this book took me away to a time not so long ago ...i could not get enough ms stocktts writing is mesmerizing ,i want more , i need to know what happens to my characters...please,please,write more ....one word sequel.............you must
Of the many great listens I've enjoyed from Audible, this one is at the top! The narration was wonderful. I'm usually very suspicious about this type of book because the characters seem to come across as "whinny", but not here. They are just so real. The writing is beautiful, the language is subtle, not course, and I found that I had slipped into the world of the 1960's south.
Insight to the lives of the South. Totally eye opening since I live in the West and have never experienced the situations. Enjoyed listening.
