This is my favorite audiobook of all time. I can't express how much this story moved me. I am sad that I am not still listening to it. I only hope I can find a book that brings me half as much joy as this has brought me...
The narrators bring this book to life. They became my friends. I cared about what happened to them. They made me laugh and cry. This is a important story of how it felt to be black, hired help in the south during the 1960s.
You cannot grasp the characters and story unless its listened to. Its amazing that some books are just meant to be listened to and this is one of them. Great!
I absolutely loved the writing and the narration. All of the narrators do such a good job of bringing the characters to life! I thought the book was excellent, one of a few that I'd give 5 stars to. I only wish the book was longer, I'd love to hear more about the lives of these women!
I normally dont take the time to write a review. But this is definitely the best listen in a long time. Found myself really involved in this story. The characters were so real. Hard to believe this was very likely was the mindset in my lifetime. Narration excellent. Still thinking about this one. Didn't want it to end.
Not my typical genre or something I would normally look for. Don't be put off by the fact that it does deal with racial topics - its a well written story that keeps you interested. The characters are vivid and all in all a book I enjoyed and recommend to friends.
From the very start, this book had me hooked! I loved the rich characters that told the story in three perspectives of a time when our country was going through so much social change. The narration was excellent and I was so sad when this book was over. I highly recommend it!
