One of the best books ever! I was completely engrossed from start to finish. Kathryn Stockett has inspired me to learn more about this time period! The narrators were top notch, bringing every character alive for me!
The story is perfectly crafted. The voices are perfectly cast. I am afraid I will never find this perfection again.
After reading the other reviews, I decided to try this one and I wasn't disappointed. It was wonderfully narrated--the readers did an excellent job with the characterization. This was the best audio book I've listened to in awhile.
I enjoyed this book all the way around. It's amazing to me that the story reflects the lives of so many Americans such a short time ago. Thank God we have evolved. I especially enjoyed the narration.. brilliant!!!!
This book was wonderful with the story and characters and the voices for the characters. This is far and away the best audiobook I have ever listened to (and I have been listening for a long time) and I highly recommend it. The story never becomes slow or boring and the different voices for the characters keep it engaging.
This story is truly amazing; the writing and the reading. I was born in Mississippi at the end of 1964. My family did not have "help" but had very defined rules about who I was allowed to associate with. I identify most with Skeeter and would truly love to hear more about her as well as the other characters.
I was 12 years old in 1962 but don't remember most of the events talked about in the Help. I think maybe because I lived on the west Coast, and not Mississippi.
One great thing about the book is that it reminds us of how far we've come. Not just black maids but every woman. I loved it. Great characters and good story.
This is one of the best books that I have ever listened to on audible, and I have listened to a lot. It reminded me so much of my childhood, growing up in SC. It really made me think. Great narrators. This is one book that you should listen to.
