Loved this so much I recommended it to my book club and they all loved it too. A look back at a very different time but comes across very modern, and you can relate to the characters. Once you know someone else who has read it you will have many inside jokes together!
Such a wonderfully told story. You really get to know the characters and the narration was perfect. This book made me smile, made me mad and made me cry. I was so sad when it ended.
A great read. I enjoyed every moment of this book!
Amazing. This is the first time I have felt that I would have missed something if I had read the book instead of listening to the audiobook. The book was great, but the narration was beyond outstanding. I am from the south and can attest to the authenticity of their accents. If this book is ever made into a movie (and I suspect it probably will be), the actresses would do well to listen to these narrators in preparation for their roles.
I bought the ebook and didn't want to put it down to get some chores done, so I d/l the audible version. All I can say is, "Wow!" This has to be the BEST narration I have ever heard. The characters are so full of life that they would make me feel emotion not by what they were saying, but how they were saying it.
The book was amazing. Usually I'd say if you just got the written book it was fine, but the narration is so amazing that it was worth having both.
Fabulous story!!! Beautifully told. I couldn't stop listening to it! I was addicted. This is a 10 star book! Buy this download. I never write reviews, but this book was so good, I was compelled to!
I bought this book based on the excellent reviews.
I too have to give it a five. It is funny, poignant, and keeps you coming back for more.
Not only did I absolutely adore the characters, the story, and the author's writing, the narrators on this audio version were flawless. Each of the three women (only one chapter is done without the voice of Minny, Skeeter, or Aibileen) took on their respective character's traits and habits beautifully. The book became less a story that I was listening to, and more an experience in itself where I felt close to the characters within. I'm glad I finally got to "read" this book, it's worth the hype, and even more worth it when you get to listen to talented narrators tell the story to you. I would highly recommend listening to this book.
