I think the audio edition of this Shopaholic book was better than the print version. I LOVE hearing the British accent and inflection. It really helps when you're reading about quid, the loo, and pounds!
I love Becky's lack of realism. So many of us live our lives so seriously, and this book is truly a fun read and an escape from reality.
I love Emily Gray. Her voice is EXACTLY how I picture Becky's voice! In some of the later books a different narrator is used and it's not the same.
When in Rome!...or New York!
The Shopaholic series is such a fun group of books. I enjoyed reading them and now I love listening to them on Audible! Rebecca Bloomwood's character is relatable to every 20 (or 30) something gal. She has a fun job, fun life, and loves to shop. Couple that with the high class city of New York and you've got trouble.
I know I will listen to this book over and over again!
I really enjoyed that there were 3-4 voices used. When the perspective of the story changed, so did the voice. This made it feel so real and very presonal.
The story itself is so powerful. I was not familiar with the civil rights movement, and the way people in the south used to behave toward one another. Learning about the historical perspective in the midst of this truly great story was just an added bonus.
Definitely Skeeter! She had such a sincere innocence about her. I felt like she could be a close friend of mine.
The Help is an amazing story. After listening to it for hours, I was so sad to hear it end. I found myself laughing out loud as I listened to it on the treadmill at the gym. At other times I cried as the characters talked about their personal connections, emotions, and triumphs. This story is one that should be required reading for high school, college, sociology majors, etc... It's truly a case study in human behavior.
I had watched some of the movie, but never finished it. Then I listened to The Help on Audible. I am absolutely in love with this book. It was fun to listen to; I felt connected with the characters; the narrative was superb! I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. I know I will listen to it again and again.
