    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Help to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I loved to hear the readers with the different southern accents. It added to the credibility of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the narrators, ALL OF THEM!!!


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

    No, I haven't but I intend to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This is irrelevant since there was a movie.

    Who Asked You? opens as Trinetta leaves her two young sons with her mother, Betty Jean, and promptly disappears. BJ, a trademark McMillan heroine, already has her hands full dealing with her other adult children, two opinionated sisters, an ill husband, and her own postponed dreams - all while holding down a job as a hotel maid. Her son Dexter is about to be paroled from prison; Quentin, the family success, can't be bothered to lend a hand; and taking care of two lively grandsons is the last thing BJ thinks she needs.

    What made the experience of listening to Who Asked You? the most enjoyable?

    I loved listening to Phylicia Rashad narrating this book! I could absolutely picture her as Betty Jean. The story line was good also. One of my favorite Terry McMillan books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Betty Jean was my favorite character.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved listening to Phylicia Rashad. She was very believable.
