It is tough to review this novel without a plot spoiler. The narration is terrific - allows the reader to "feel" the characters. The story touches on the very sensitive and, at times, disturbing topics surrounding the treatment of severe mental health issues. Buckle up - this book delivers right up to the end!
I admit I am an audible book junkie; I have been filling my substantial commute time with books for about 10 years. The Help is a standout from both the standpoint of an extremely well-developed story coupled with extraordinary narration. The multiple narrators helped round out the richness and depth of each of the characters. I felt like I was in the room with them throughout the novel.
I enjoyed the portrayal of the start of the civil rights movement from the viewpoint of a black maids in Mississippi and their unlikely white story-teller. I did not want the book to end! I felt I could sit with the characters and listen to them tell their stories for hours. Enjoy!
