    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Amazing Book"
    Overall

    I recommend this book to everyone. Until I moved to the SC low country four years ago, I lived in the north, and I am a caucasian. The South is like a different country. I did not understand the issue regarding the confederate flag flying over the state capitol. Since listening to this book, I have an entirely different perspective regarding both the flag issue and some of the problems black southerners faced in the 20th Century.

    Lexi Titan can just see the headlines. All of Titanville will be buzzing. Not that she has any other choice. Faced with exactly thirty days to come up with two million dollars, she is out of options. Marry Cruz Rodriguez or lose everything--the successful day spa she built herself, her tyrant of a father's respect.

    mia says: "Great start for the Lone Star Sisters series!"
    "Trivial"
    Overall

    The characters and their actions were uninteresting and shallow. The narrator was difficult to listen so I skipped over parts to try to get to the plot. Not worth my time.

    Julie Powell thought cooking her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking was the craziest thing she'd ever do - until she embarked on the voyage recounted in her new memoir, Cleaving. Her marriage challenged by an insane, irresistible love affair, Julie decides to leave town and immerse herself in a new obsession: butchery.

    PKsweets says: "A Maybe- listen to preview first"
    "Seems Gruesome"
    Overall

    I don't think I could listen to an entire book based on the first chapter. The main character becomes a butcher, which is ok, but the author's descriptions remind me of Sweeney Todd.

    Stephen Sheerin was born to play on Broadway - or at least, under it. He's a musician, a conductor, and his dream is to music-direct a big Broadway musical. After years of toiling in the pit of some of the best-loved (and loathed) hits on the Great White Way, he's just been given his big break. Can life really be going that well? Of course not.

    Michael says: "A *must-have* for any fan of Broadway or humor!"
    "Interesting listen"
    Overall

    I purchased this because Kristin Chenoweth was a narrator, and because I would love to live in NYC!
    It took two tries to listen to the book, but when I finally got into the book I found it enjoyable because of the multiple narrators, and because I wanted to find out how it concluded.

    One day in 1957, in the third-grade classroom of St. Brigid's parochial school, an exasperated Sister Mary Lurana bent over a restless young William O'Reilly and said, "William, you are a bold, fresh piece of humanity." Little did she know that she was, early in his career as a troublemaker, defining the essence of Bill O'Reilly and providing him with the title of his brash and entertaining issues-based memoir.

    James says: "Avid Reader Explains Bold Fresh is a must Listen"
    "Inspiring book for today's issues."
    Overall

    Bill presents his straight forward and common sense method of decision making and interactions with others. We need this kind of logic in the chaos of today's environment.

    Berry Knudson had a talent for disaster, but when she climbed a tree to rescue a kitten, she wasn't prepared for the scrumptious hunk undressing in a nearby window, or her dive downward that smashed Jake Sawyer's pizza and won his heart! But was there room in her chaotic schedule for a risk-taking inventor with dreams? She took classes, delivered pizzas, and cared for three eccentric old ladies she rescued from the train station. But Jake thrived on a challenge, and he could be very inventive.

    E says: "AUG! Enough already"
    "Save your money and time."
    Overall

    The plot is predictable, but it could be a fluff listen if the reader were not so TERRIBLE. I still have two thirds of the book left, but she is so bad I will move onto something else.

    After news of his mother's weak heart summons him home, globetrotting journalist Roman Chandler loses a coin toss with his brothers that determines who will relinquish his bachelor status to give their mother a grandchild. Roman decides to settle down without giving up his travel-intensive job, and as one of the most handsome men in town, he can have his pick of the local women - except for Charlotte Bronson, his high-school crush.

    Ann says: "Bachelor"
    "Not worth my time."
    Overall

    Story is lame and the narrator makes the characters ridiculous.

    A satisfying tale of honor, chance, and star-crossed love infused with Southern wit, grace, and charm - the story of two old Southern families. The Langleys have more money than the Morgan Stanley Bank. And they think they have more class. The Barrett family made their 19th-century fortune in a less distinguished manner: corner grocery stores and liquor stores.

    Ce Sea says: "Another great beach book"
    "Not a worthy book."
    Overall

    I have read her other books primarily because I live in Charleston, SC and found them interesting for that reason. Her characters generally lack depth and believability, but this is the worst book to date. I will not bother with future books if there are any!

    A devoted city dweller, Cornelia Brown surprised herself when she was gripped by the sudden desire to head for an idyllic suburb. Though she knows she's made the right move, she approaches her new life with trepidation and struggles to forge friendships. Cornelia's mettle is quickly tested by judgmental neighbor Piper Truitt, the embodiment of everything Cornelia feared she would find in suburbia.

    glamazon says: "Entertaining but shallow"
    "Loved this book."
    Overall

    The book and the narrator made for a very enjoyable listen. I was very sorry when it ended! I will be looking for more books by this author as well as the narrator.

    "Alexandra Scott, Alaskan Wilderness Woman". It had a terrific ring to it, but Alex felt a sudden twinge of uncertainty. She'd traded in her Wall Street job and fancy condo for a rundown cabin in the woods and a bait and tackle store. She'd wanted to escape the rat race and to go husband-hunting where men outnumbered women four to one, but was she ready for the challenge?

    Julia says: "Lots of Fun"
    "Worst book to date."
    Overall

    I have been a member of Audible for over a year, and purchased many, many books. This one was a true waste. Although the reviews for this book were not good, I wanted a mindless story and the price was right, but as it turned out this story was less than mindless. The plot and characters are totally ridiculous and the reader was even worse. Save your money.
