    Vampires have officially "come out of the coffin", and Miss Sookie can't wait for one to come her way.

    I absolutely love True Blood so I thought these books would be even better but boy was I wrong. It was slow moving and the narrator's attempt at a true southern accent was very distracting. How it's gotten so many positive reviews I will never know. One to be returned for sure seeing as I couldn't even finish it!

    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.

    If you could sum up The Help in three words, what would they be?

    Reminiscent, Touching, Funny!! This book brought back so many memories of growing up in the South. It paints a vivid picture of the horrible actions in many households while still showing the true bonds of love created in others.


    What other book might you compare The Help to and why?

    In my opinion this book is in a league of its own. I honestly can't think of a book to compare it to, if someone else can I hope they share!


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Octavia Spencer was the only narrator I was familiar with (being from "The Gump" aka Montgomery, AL) but enjoyed every narrator and will look for more from each!
