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!!
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.
This narration reflects beautifully on the legacy of southern storytelling. The readers are amazing as they capture a turning point in the history of our country. I've listened to many books and this is my first review, written because I feel this is what listening to a book should be - oral tradition revisited.
This book is beautifully written. Out of all my audio books, I loved the narration on this one the best. The characters each had their own voices and the accents were wonderful. The book takes you through all emotions and makes you look hard at what our country was like, and where we are now, and how far we need to go. Loved it, and highly recommend it.
Kathryn Stockett will draw you into a world that since forgotten but true in the minds of many. It starts out a little slow but give it some time and you will not be disappointed. I love the way the story line builds and the underlying bits of humor will leave you with an unforgettable experience.
