The narration of this book made you feel that you were right there in the story. The characters were brought to life with such brilliance. I have recommended this to several of my friends.
A wonderfully written first book...a book within a book...what was it like if you lived in Mississippi in 1962, wore a white uniform, white hose and worked for a white Junior League Magnolia? Stockett uses her main characters, speaking in their dialect, to tell you their story and the story if the Civil Rights movement of the time. Independent women take a "giant step" for mankind and you, the listener, are totally engrossed from page one. I can't imagine NOT listening to this book to get the FULL affect!
I loved this book. Lots of great characters and very touching. The only thing i didnt like was the characters voices not being the same all the time. I think it would have been easier to listen to if the speaker was talking in each appropriate area. Great book though.. worth the time!
The characters are so well drawn that not only will you feel that you know them, but when the book ends you will miss them.
Audible always says "We hope that you have enjoyed this story..." and at the end of this one I just said, "Yes Audible, I did indeed."
I didn't want it to end. Producers in Hollywood - please make this into a motion picture!!
I loved the style in which the book was written. Very intertaining. For once I couldn't guess the "end". The readers were perfect. Hope to listen to more books read by these readers.
This was one of the best books I have read since My Sister's Keeper. All of the narrators bring the book to life. It's as if the maids are sitting with me and telling me their story. I was sorry when it was over, and hope to see more books by Kathryn Stockett.
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.
