I have downloaded a lot of books from audible, many of which I've enjoyed immensely, but this one is just wonderful. I cannot praise it enough. Not only is it a great book which tackles a challenging subject in a really interesting and sensitive way, but the people reading the different characters are just fantastic. The book comes vividly to life and I find it very difficult to tear myself away. I really don't want it to end!
"Amazingly narrated audiobook"
The story is truly bought to life in this excellent audiobook. The compelling narrative and the depth of characters make this a must listen!
"My guilty pleasure!"
I found this book completely addicitive. I ignored my family and just kept going til the end. It was so beautifully read, the characters were so vivid and so moving. Just wonderful.
Excellent. This best audio book I have listened to in a long time. Highly recommended.
I loved this as an audio book! I can struggle with accents (even in my head) and it was wonderful to hear the deep southern american accent being read to me so beautifully.
Would highly recommend.
I strongly recommend this book. The story defies genre preferences. I'm a passionate Sci-FI girl (maybe 1 in 10 of my audiobooks are outside Sci-Fi) and I couldn't get enough of this book. I was sad when the book ended because I wanted to story to go and on and on and on..... I've talked three of my friends into downloading this book just so we could discuss and dissect it. Its wonderful and amazing.
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.
