"Not much happens and yet you can't put it down"
Never one for a quite read about a backwater town's social scean - even with the racial tension twist. But this book is an exception that makes you laugh, cry and shout all in just a few pages.
"It Helped Me..."
I loved this book..I couldn't put it down, beautifully defined characters that draw you into their lives and the book. It's easy to warm to the characters too. A story of courage and Pride..Well worth a read.
A great book, pure class
I loved every minute of The Help. It is read beautifully and you fall deep into the lives of the characters almost immediately.
What a wonderful and surprising book.
I found myself listening to it at every opportunity I had, even when I could just grab a couple of minutes here and there. I imagine this is one I might listen to again as well which is unusual for most audible books.
I recommend this highly
"Enjoyed every minute!"
Fantastic audiobook. The story is good but the narrators make it tough to stop listening. A must for everyone!
"Charming and engaging"
I look forward to more from this author.
Her writing style and overall story was comprehensive, engaging and involving. A sensitively written story, well read by good narrators. My only criticism would be a slightly weak ending, but I would be happy to read more from this author.
"The Help by Kathryn Stockett"
This is the best book I have listened to. With the background of the civil rights movement in the USA in the early 1960s, this book is very well written and the narration is very good. I particularly liked the the different voices for the main characters. The plot is thought provoking and sometimes disturbing, but with such hope at the end. I could not put it down. Highly recommended
A really beautiful listen, very well read and the story really draws you in. Didn't want it to end.
One of the best audio books I have listened to. Well narrated and easy to follow.
A thorough good read (or rather listen).A tragic, witty, insightful account of the lives of coloured home helps in the 1960s in Missisippi and their relationships with white employers. Very well narrated. No bad language.
