    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.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Long on story, short on accurate details"

    For example, no one would be able to have a drink in public (or legally, in private) in Mississippi in the early 60s. It was a "dry" state.

    Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    An implausible plot with a spoiled brat of a child and head lice--over dramatized. I cannot believe I listened to the whole thing. I kept hoping it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. Usually I can trust the review summaries, but this was a terrible disappointment. Trying to think of something positive, the author certainly has a creative imagination!

    Hugh De Luc, a poor innkeeper, returns home from the First Crusade wearied from battle and disillusioned by carnage. After journeying from the Holy Land back to his own small village, he finds his nightmare is just beginning.

    Sheridan Race says: "Spellbound and engaged"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    Weak prose and a superficial plot.
