This was truly a page turner, the best book this year, MS Stockett does an amazing job of bringing these characters to life, a must read for history buffs.
this was an AMAZING read...i am a tough sell, and i was hooked from the start and it just got better and better. not only a terrific story and narrators, it is a real socialogical look at a time in american history that we should really reflect upon. i felt like it was true, because of the writer's attention to the historical details that are enmeshed in the story. Jenna Lamia is simply mezmerizing as the voice of the main character, just as she was in "The Secret Life of Bees". i just loved this book, it truly moved me...
I've been an Audible member for over five years, and this is hands down the best book I've listened to so far. The narration is just excellent...I'm thankful I didn't read a hard copy of this book but listened to it instead.
This narration reflects beautifully on the legacy of southern storytelling. The readers are amazing as they capture a turning point in the history of our country. I've listened to many books and this is my first review, written because I feel this is what listening to a book should be - oral tradition revisited.
This book is beautifully written. Out of all my audio books, I loved the narration on this one the best. The characters each had their own voices and the accents were wonderful. The book takes you through all emotions and makes you look hard at what our country was like, and where we are now, and how far we need to go. Loved it, and highly recommend it.
Kathryn Stockett will draw you into a world that since forgotten but true in the minds of many. It starts out a little slow but give it some time and you will not be disappointed. I love the way the story line builds and the underlying bits of humor will leave you with an unforgettable experience.
Wow!! The narrators were absolutely brilliant! Pitch perfect voices. The story, too, made me listen late into the evening & early morning. The narrators made the book even better than reading it. I will certainly follow this author.
Very enjoyable, most wonderful narration and excellent storyline reflecting a very difficult chapter in America's not so distant past.
What a wonderful story to listen to! The various voices of the women narrators were genuine and engaging, allowing you to enter into their lives and experience the attitudes of the time. The pace of the book was perfect, encouraging just a little more listening at the end of each chapter.
