The narrator did a good job with lula's voice. There were some funny lines.
On the downside, the voice of Stephanie was all wrong and having a female do the male voices just ruined the story. A woman saying "Babe" as ranger was unconvincing and detracted from the experience. Should've been two narrators since there are so many male characters.
Change the narrator.
I think the series may have gone everywhere it can. Maybe develop Lula as a character and venture off onto new materia.
would not pay for this audiobook. Probably OK as a book you read yourself.
I definitely will listen to it again. Listened once, saw the movie, now will listen again.
The Help effected me int he same way. Books that make you think and understand mankind and the reality of others.
It was OK. I think a professional would've done better but she surely would know better than anyone how she wanted the story told. Bravo to her to write such a masterpiece and have the confidence to perform it.
Yes, when Lisa wrote herself instructions for the end. I definitely saw myself in that moment and saw my Dad then as well. Both my parents has tried to plan to take their lives due to cancer and alzheimers ....neither was well enough to do it.
The book is much better than the movie and I really enjoyed everyone about it. I guess if we could've know Lisa just a little better int he beginning of the book and a little more character development on the daughters.
Bought this for the five star rating...not liking it and will return.
not the performers fault, just that the material seems awkward
lacks character development
Probably in the second 20%. There were a few I really loved and this would be right behind those. Definitely would recommend
The perseverance of the family
this was my first - she was excellent!
Probably Otis - just wasn't as well developed
A decent story and narrator.
So unmemorable - can't even remember who they were.
skip this one!
fascinating, intriging, entertaining
Momma Mae has the wisdom that we aspire to.
loved them all but I guess my most memorable would be those that actually took place in the kitchen house.
If you like The Help, you'll love the Kitchen House
The narration of this book was extraordinary. I'm going to read the book myself and see if I can even come close in my imagination to the wonderful job done by the actors.
There was just something missing about the character development. I enjoyed the book overall though and would recommend to a friend.
The plot twists and turns and the ending were good.
This is by far my favorite audiobook to date. The story is really good but it's the choice of narrator that makes this work so well. Craig Wasson envelopes the characters in a way that is hard to describe. I now know what the old time stories on the radio must've been like - The characters feel true to life and the settings are portrayed by the writer so that you feel like you are there watching the action. The plot is not new- time travel and JFK assisination. However, mixing these things in a unique way keeps the story fresh and interesting. I am actually only more than halfway done but wanted others to know this one is a good choice!
The scene in the Dunning House - don't want to give anything away but you will know it when you hear it.
Many - I laughed out loud on some of the things from the past and clenched my teeth at the physical abuses. The story really comes to life.
never read the print version
The way the author weaves each character into the story. This story is one that is hard to stop listening to.
The characters are done so well. He has a talent for bringing the book to life. I will look for him as the narrator on other books.
Took me two tries to get into this one but it was worth it. an interesting story and the character development is done well
