Absolutely marvelous! I'm so glad I listened to the readers choice guide and downloaded this audiobook. Being born and raised in the south I found the characters real and true to southern life in the 1960s. The narration was wonderful and the voices rich and true to life. I hated to see it end.
thank you for such an enlightened view of the actual reality of life in the south. How being of a certain class seemed to entitle you to treat others badly. I'm impressed by the characters ability to remain proud and yet daring to risk everything to let the world know their sufferings. Hurray to The Help, Hurray to Skeeter and Hurry to Kathryn Stockett. Couldn't put the book down!
This was a beautifully written book about the struggles of blacks during the times of civil rights. The narration was spectacular. It was a great story
I am very glad that I listened to the audio version of this book. I found myself lost in the characters though their voices. I have a very long commute to work each day and eagerly awaited hearing the next page, I found myself going through a drive-thru to grab dinner so I could eat in the car and listen some more!
This is one of my favorite audiobooks. The voices are done extremely well, and the story itself is well written and a touching and inspiring story of standing up for yourself in the face of harsh friends.
Kathryn Stockett's characters are so picture perfect that when I was finished with the story I felt as though I'd said goodbye to dear friends. Never have I enjoyed an audio book as much as I did this one. It shouldn't be missed.
