    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.

    Overall

    I absolutely LOVED this book and am so very sorry that it is over! It was like watching a captivating movie where the images were not on a screen but instead colorful and dancing in my mind's eye. The writing and narration allowed me to take part in the story in a new way. I was mesmerized. I found myself rooting for some characters and scowling at others. The narrators made it easy to distinguish between characters and their reading provided a richness of sound and accent to the writing. I laughed, I cried, I shook my head, cursed and celebrated. As a white woman, I felt shame for my own race and how we have behaved and in some cases continue to. I felt like I knew the characters better than any other book I have listened to. I hope the writers and readers win many awards and are recognized over and over again for this incredible work of art. I am truly grateful!
