I loved this book. It is superbly written and superbly narrated. The multiple narratives are easy to follow and the stories of the women are absorbing and feel as if they could easily be authentic. I was engrossed from beginning to end and very sorry when it was over. Highly recommended.
I have 3 hours left and I already feel sad that it will be over soon, this is a first novel by Kathryn Stockett, all I can say is get busy writing!!
"Worth every penny"
All audio books should be made to this standard. Its not read to you its performed to you, its as if you have a portitble theather in you pocket.
"2 slice pie"
I loved this book, I'm a child of the fifties who grew up in working class Glasgow and I remember when Kennedy was shot, I knew little of the USA but I sure is glad I 'aint nothin like some of those deep south women. I loved Abeline, Minnie and Miss Cecilia I could identify with them. Folks, do yourself a favour and down load this book, it's beautiful, sad, funny and very, very moving. Thank you Miss Kathryn Stockett and for the beautiful narrators. I'll be looking out for your other books.
"an audiobook makes a difference here"
Aside from loving the story and the way it is structured, I found it extremely fun to listen to. The narrators are doing an excellent job with the accents and they made me feel like I was really there in the book listening to a real help, nonetheless for Skeeter and Hilly, all of the characters are suberply performed. The listening was a much more awarding way of going thorugh this book than reading.
"One to buy....Brilliant"
Hooked from the start didn't want this to end. Will miss the characters especially Minnie. I've laughed out loud also had a tear or two.
What do I listen to now???
"Beautiful narration & story"
The characters came to life with the superb narration and thought provoking storyline. The social history of 1960's deep south kept me listening.
"A fantastic listen"
Easy 5-star rating for this one. Enjoyed this audiobook more than the film for certain. I wish more audiobooks had this level of production value, with multiple narrators.
"Best book i have read (or heard) in years!"
A whole range of emotions fills this book. I am so sorry to be on the last chapter but I have enjoyed every single word of this clever and insightful book
I really became absorbed in all of the characters of this story and I was disappointed when it was finished. A great book.
