I could not wait to hear the interview with Kathryn Stockett. This was my favorite book and I really wanted to hear her perspective and intentions when she started writing "The Help"
This interview let's in more than it should, giving away part of the end of the book. My advice is get the book first!
Born, raised, and live in Hawaii. Married with one cat. My favorite way to drive my car is to listen to a great audiobook at the same time. Addicted to the Pendergast novels of Preston and Child. Also love autobiographies narrated by the author, usually a celebrity of some sort.
around the middle, considering it is a recording of an interview over the phone.
If you love the book The Help, you should be interested in the interview with the author.
Have already listened twice; I found the insight re: "The Help" fascinating, and was moved and impressed by the author's commitment to authenticity and integrity in the telling of that story (and presumably any other writing or speaking she does).
I will almost certainly listen again, either before (finally) seeing the movie or afterwards.
I always like to read about the creative process, but I especially enjoyed this. My next reading of the book (or watching of the movie) will be further enriched by having listened to this, and I'm now even more interested in reading anything else Ms. Stockett may write in the future.
Best is the narration level.
She patiently gave multiple reviews
yes. i will try another title as well.
I listened to this after I finished "The Help" because I wanted a little more of Kathryn Stockett's own story. She is so adorable and humbled by the success of her novel, it is a joy to listen to her discuss it.
Includes some back story about the voice talent on the audio book and some news on the movie (which of course is out by this time, but was just in discussions during the interview), which shows the connection to the audio book and the movie. She also discusses other projects that she was working on that don't seem to be available on Audible or Amazon, so I'm interested to see where those are at or if they are going to happen.
I heard a good book today!
This interview helped me deciding book purchase.Great interview and the book in in my library now.
That book was wonderful , vivid it made me laugh out loud and I felt I could see the characters. The readers made the book visual even the town . I loved this audible !! I never enjoyed a book in this manner, I didn't wanna stop the tape . When it ended I thought now what can top this !!!!
Can't wait to listen to the book!!! Trying to figure out where the 18 hours will come from....
