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.
One of the best books I have read in a long time. Wonderfully written, and expertly narrated! There is no question about why this book has been so highly rated by Audible members. It is a must read.
I grew up in MS during the 1960s and Ms. Stockett's book took me back into my own childhood kitchen with our maid. I knew many Abelenes and Minnies. I highly recommend this book. It is thoughful without preaching. This book was perfect in audio. The narrators brought each character to life in a way the written word could not. A powerful book.
Listen to about four audio books a months. Never without one.
One of the best books I have read in a very long time. Amazing historical fiction - and all of it in my lifetime. Great narration. A must read!
This is an excellent book. I am old enough to have lived through these times but I was not aware of the pervasiveness of life in the south. We knew something significant was happening when the civil rights movement started, we just did not realize how significant. This book put into perspective many of the events that I observed in media reports at the time.
This book is needed to educate the younger generations about what man is capable of doing to others including creating perverted "laws" to support it. This did not happen in Rwanda or the Sudan or South Africa, this happened in the "civilized" nation of the United States of America. "The Help" should send the message that vigilance is always necessary and complacency is the tool of those who will take advantage of it. Thank you, Kathryn Stockett.
