This audiobook is one of the best I've heard in a very long time. Kathryn Stockett has defined the many characters in the book very well, so its fairly easy to keep up with them, plus the narratives are first rate! The story line is about the lives of Negro maids working for white families in the 50's and early 60's. It has all the elements I look for... It's serious, sad sometimes, and yet has realistic comical moments. I loved listening to it and most likely will listen to it again and again.
This is an amazing book. The story itself, the structure and the subject matter are exceptional, but the narration will blow you away. I usually prefer reading but this is one thast I can't recommend the audio book enough.
I don't usually review either but had to do it on this one.
I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus of praise. A beautiful story that danced with excellent narration. Touching the same place in my heart as the Secret Life of Bees.
I have not yet finished this book. I came back here because I wanted to know more about the author. The narration and the book itself is totally absorbing. I can't stop listening so I've been carrying my iPhone around with headphones. Ranks up there with Secret Life of Bees. Expert narration, I think, makes all the difference, even to an excellent book. This is expert and excellent. A must "read"!
I loved the subject of this novel. The narrators do a superb job. I was sorry when it ended. A must read and would make a great selection for a book club.
This was the best Audible book I have ever listened to and there have been a few! The narrators were exceptional and made listening to this book almost like attending the theater. I felt like I was there with them.
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...
