I loved listening to this book. I'm a little sorry it's ended. Hearing about life in Jackson during this time period sounds like it's something that was from 100 years ago, instead of 50! Very heartfelt. Narrators were excellent!
I really enjoyed this story and especially liked the audio-actresses who gave it personality.
Being from the South and white, this book made me both proud and ashamed at the same time. Thank God there were and are people that are like Skeeter who speak out against injustice and, that there are brave souls who put their lives and the lives of their families at risk to expose this injustice. This book was well written and I just loved the narration.
The novel paints a rich portrait of the struggles of women, black and white, in the deep South during the turbulent pre-Civil Rights era. I can't remember when I've cared so much about the characters in any story, except maybe "To Kill a Mockingbird." The story could stand on its own merit, but the voice actors were remarkable! They gave the characters such dimension. Truly the best audio book production I've ever heard.
This is my all time favorite audiobook. Beautifully written, and the narrators are spectacular. I was so sad when I finished - I could have listened to them for many more hours.
It is amazing how far we have come in only 40 or so years. I really enjoyed this book. The characters came to life for me and I heard them in my mind long after the book was done.
