"I miss them...it was that good!"
This is by far one of the best books I've listened to. The charachters were so real that I miss them now I've finished the book.... the narration was superb and I was drawn into the story from the beginning. I wanted to hug may mowbley, put the kettle on for the maids, high 5 Skeeter and shake the white ladies!! I'll definately go back to this book at some point it's got so much in it.
"Absolutely stunning and thoughtful"
After a slow start, the book moved closer and became a must listen to every day until I was sitting in the car listening until I could pull myself away.
A real eye opener to the happenings of the Southern American states during the 1960's
Listen and you will enjoy
Also very well narrated
"Excellent narration, absorbing story!"
Easily my favourite book ever, the narrators are superb and I found myself lost in the world this book weaves - couldn't get enough of it. I suspect it'll be a long time before I find another book of the same fantastic quality combined with such excellent narration.
I never write reviews but feel compelled to encourage people to read this book. I listen whilst doing housework and cooking, and realised that my whole family, (children and husband following me around wherever my ipod dock was) were enjoying this as much as I was! The story is wonderful, sad and uplifting. If you only listen to one book, make it this one.
Beautifully read and a great story. I would highly recommend this audio book to others.
A beautifully written book. I loved how the narrators brought the different persons/voices to life. Among my top three of audio books!
"Heck 1 is enough..voice of Ms Skeeter is soothing"
I bought this looking at so many 5 stars...
I am giving 1 star only because of Skeeter's soothing voice.
Is this is a trick by Audible??
I don't know what the heck is wrong with people these days. Are the stars purely out of sympathy. I cannot listen and concentrate to it. I thoroughly enjoyed awesome audios of "woodcutter" and girl with a dragon tattoo series and after them, this??
I feel like commiting a suicide.
"Wonderful, enthrawling classic!"
I can not tell you how much I enjoyed this book. I was initially a bit wary of the fact that it was narrated by a few different people thinking it would sound a bit like a audio soapopera - but it works really really well! (different people read different chapters that is all!)
I was engrossed from the very first line and was really sad when it finished! I am now at a loss!
Listen to this book - its great!
Brilliant book. Just like a paperback that you can't put down, you will want to listen to this from start to finish.
This is the best book I've listened to in some time. Love the narration. It enhances great writing from Kathryn.
