This is a wonderful story set between three narrators. Although the political history is a major part of the novel, this is carefully crafted through human narratives and deeply personal stories. I was rapidly pulled in. A great listen - I highly recommend it!
This was the BEST narrated book I've gotten from Audible out of about 50 books. The Help is a fabulous book made better by the way it was produced. It really sets a new standard. Painful to read at times, it was funny, horrifying, bittersweet and full of love.
I had never heard of this book before seeing it on Audible.com and after reading the reviews decided to take a chance. WHAT A GREAT BOOK!!! The women who do the reading really draw you in to the story and make you feel like you're right there in the story. I feel that this book has a great message that everyone should read. It also makes me VERY happy that I was born in the late 60's and that so many things have changed since then!
As a woman who grew up in the 1960's South, I can vouch for the accuracy of the details in this absorbing novel. Also, this is the best narration of any audiobook I've enjoyed to date.
This is probably my favorite audio book yet. The story is very moving and the narration is top notch. My only complaint is that I didn't want it to end...
Good story and a picture of life in that time that few who were not there could imagine. I loved the characters but sometimes had trouble distinguishing which of the three readers (Characters) was talking.
In the last three months I have listened to six audible books and this by far was my favorite! The reading is wonderful and makes the characters come to life. I miss all of them now that the book is over.
I really enjoyed listening to this story. All the characters (and voices) were great. I really did not want it to end.
