First I need to say that the narrator was incredible, he is the only reason I finished the book. The characters were well developed and interesting but I kept waiting for something to happen and it just goes on and on. It is really an autobiography jazzed up a little to make it more interesting. I got a little tired of PK always being so "smart" and "right" about everything. Don't really understand the high rating for the story line by other people. Anyway if you want a book you can't stop listening to this probably is not the best choice.
This book tells of the life of two main characters, their struggles, character growth, strength and endurance through great hardship. Survival in a tough brutal life and the opportunity to start fresh in a new land. It is very well written and the narration is superb. A very entertaining journey. I have purchased the next book and will continue the story in book 2
Want to pass the time on a trip with your kids? This is the perfect book! Your whole family will laugh out loud at this great story. The narrator does a wonderful job and really adds to the story with great voices. Excellent!!
Loved the narrators voices, it really added to the experience. Good story, I especially like the ending. I recommend you run away and join the circus for a few hours, you won't regret it.
I very much enjoyed this audio book. The narrators were excellent, it was great having four ladies with very different voices reading the parts. The story was not the kind of plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat but rather you became friends with the characters and really felt an interest in their lives. I listen to audio books when I drive and this book really ate up the miles. Thank you Kathryn Stockett.
