Talk about a snooze fest! The narrator sounded as though he just learned how to read. I finally made it through the book, but it was like pulling teeth! I will make note of the narrator's name (Barrett Whitener) so that I avoid future books read in his monotone voice.
The book started off excrutiatingly slow. I kept with it because I'd heard so much about the series. I believe it took seven hours to get to a point where I stopped thinking
Wow, what a disappointment! Sookie fans waited a year for this? It seems like Charlaine Harris has lost her pizazz in the last two books. Is she too caught up in True Blood to focus on new installments to this series? If she can't do better than this, maybe it's time for her to call it "a day" and start something new!
Kathryn Stockett wrote a wonderfully moving and poignant story about life in Mississippi in the early 1960s. The narration made the story come to life - choosing four people to read the script enabled me to picture the characters in my mind's eye. I can't say enough positive things about the audiobook. I certain hope Ms. Stockett writes a sequel!
