This audio book is stunningly captivating. The writing is elegant and the four voice actors make the characters come alive. I did not want to stop my iPod. Buy it!
'The Help' was a wonderful read. An honest and
unique approach to the Sixties...and the naration of the audible book made it even better.
I cried when this book ended, because I wasn't going to get to hear anymore about the lives of the amazing characters, whom I'd grown to feel like I knew and loved. The story was amazingly written, sad, hopeful, inspiring, and humbling. The actors who portrayed the women in the book were fantastic, and I feel lucky that I listened to this book, rather than read it in print, because I really think something magical would have been lost without being able to hear the voices of the women. I still miss this story, weeks after finishing it--it was one of the most moving books I've read to date. Do not hesitate to download this book!
I know I will listen to this book again and again. Not only for the incredible story but for the awesome narration. These three women are forever in my heart and I am still thinking about Minnie and Abilene after finishing the book two days ago. I laughed and cried listening to their stories. I hope one day we can find out how things turned out for them.
As someone who grew up in the 70's in Mississippi, these things hit home. The narration brought it to life, and gave a voice to this era of oppression in the South. I could not stop listening. One of my favorite listens from Audible.
It was good from the very start. No slow places. The readers did great jobs [ perfect for their part ] I would tell anyone to get this audio book.
This book is a small slice of my childhood. The narrators are excellent and the story is riveting. This is definitely one of my audible favorites. Hope they make it into a movie.
The story shows the bravery of those that were willing to struggle for the change that was so slow in coming. The characters were very real and visible as I listened.
great story and narration - i am not a writer as is obvious and i never leave reviews - but, this one deserves glowing recommendation.
