    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.

    Would you listen to The Help again? Why?

    I might listen again in the future, but I think I got the jest of it the first time.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene that stands out in my mind is one where an intruder had to be chased off the property.


    Any additional comments?

    This book offers insight into human personalities.

    On June 5, 2002, 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic, Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. She was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life.

  • Tolstoy: The Death of Ivan Ilyich & Master and Man

    Story

    In these two famous short novels, Leo Tolstoy takes readers to the brink of despair. At the end of life, worldly ambition offers no consolation for the spiritually empty soul, but Tolstoy is the master of themes and redemption. He turns his morbid topic into hope, leading toward spiritual awakening. Tolstoy offers his readers a lifetime of perspective on death.

    Laurie says: "Perfect blend of material and performer..."

    Where does Tolstoy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book has an important message. It is commonly read in high school, but I am happy that I waited until 52 years. I understand the meaning behind the book better than a teenager would because I have witnessed death, watched how others lived their lives, and thus, understand a bit more about the overall message.

    The rules for living in the real world have changed, because the world we live in has changed. Much of the conventional wisdom the last generation has passed on just doesn't apply like it once did. If you want to win, and win big, and, more importantly, keep what you work so hard for, you need a crystal-clear view of how the real world works - not how you wish it worked, but how it actually works.

  • The Real Crash: America's Coming Bankruptcy - How to Save Yourself and Your Country

    In The Real Crash, New York Times best-selling author Peter D. Schiff argues that America is enjoying a government-inflated bubble, one that reality will explode... with disastrous consequences for the economy and for each of us. Schiff demonstrates how the infusion of billions of dollars of stimulus money has only dug a deeper hole: The United States government simply spends too much and does not collect enough money to pay its debts, and in the end, Americans from all walks of life will face a crushing consequence.

  • The End of the Affair

    Story

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Story
    What did you like best about The End of the Affair? What did you like least?

    It was strange to see a man entranced by a woman he can't keep. It reminded me of a young teenage girl obsessed over a girlfriend.


    What does Colin Firth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A prime example of the stupidity of a man in love.


    Was The End of the Affair worth the listening time?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is a bit slow for my taste.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A man who enjoys listening to the ramblings of his wife. Do they exist?


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I tried for a long time to find some substance. It fails me.


    Any additional comments?

    I regret buying this. It was a best-seller, but apparently, I am on a different plane. This one is on my delete list.
