    "a worthwhile listen"
    Overall

    While most of the stories are engaging, I did find myself zoning out while listening to a couple of them. Overall this is a good listen. The length of the stories is perfect for commute or on the treadmill. I would recommend.

    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.

    "An Instant Classic"
    Overall

    I LOVED this book. It has become one of my all time favorites. The love, faith and courage each of the main characters exhibits is so true to life that I found myself going through the emotions along with them. It is the perfect showcase for the extraordinary talents of the narrators. I can't wait for someone to make this into a movie! The only thing wrong with this audiobook is that no others can possibly measure up!

    "Rapunzel" is a German fairy tale in the collection assembled by the Brothers Grimm. It was first published in 1812 as part of Children's and Household Tales and is one of the best known of Grimm's fairy tales.

    Overall

    Almost everyone knows the story of Rapunzel so there is nothing to add about that. The narration is good and the pacing is just about perfect to keep the kids attention during a short drive. I would recommend.

    Rock is something of a nerd - or so his best friend, Kelli, has always claimed, simply because he's a brainy guy. He's an up-and-coming businessman, determined to go far fast - and he's the total opposite of fun-loving Kelli. To his regret, Kelli has always seen him as a best friend, never as a potential lover.

    Judy says: "Didn't live up to it's potential"
    "You get what you pay for"
    Overall

    predictable, cheezy and just downright BAD. The story is lame and the narration is about the worst I've heard. If this had been the first audiobook I ever listened to, I would have been turned off forever. Don't waste your time.
