    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.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a difficult story to tell in a way that has reader rooting for you, but it was accomplished beautifully. I loved that each character's chapters were read by a different narrator. It gave the story even more personality.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story of the workers was told with such dignity and humor and reality.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I especially liked the scene where Minnie and Celia saved each other from the pervert in the back yard. It was a display of respect and affection like a good friendship.


    If you could take any character from The Help out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It's a toss up between Aibilene and Minnie, but I think I would choose Aibilene, the story teller. She had a lot left to say and the skill to say it.

    When 28-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she's in for a big surprise: Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident - in a Mercedes no less - Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Sophie Kinsella and/or Rosalyn Landor?

    Yes, Sophie Kinsella tells a good story, even if they do seem to follow a bit of a formula. There's a lot of similarity in her characters, but she knows her characters and writes them well.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I read a lot of Agatha Christie and there was some mystery to this story, so it was thought provoking. Sophie Kinsella writes good comedy, not so sure about the mystery. I think that she held too much back for too long.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure.


    Do you think Remember Me? needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I could imagine an interesting follow up with her mother, sister and business venture.

    Emma Corrigan has a long list of secrets, one of which is that she is afraid of flying. Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and she ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. He gets to hear that she fibbed to get her current job and that she has never been able to satisfactorily find her G-spot. Then, the plane lands...and the American turns up in her life again. He's the CEO of her company....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes and no. The story was a good one and it was very funny. But, I am not one who uses the words you can't say on tv and there were many instances of the word starting with


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The plane ride with the brain dump, very funny.


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

    As an American, it is exhausting to try to keep up mental English accent. I love the performance aspect of the reading as she makes the character her own.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not, movies seldom live up to the book (except in the case of The Help which was phenomenal) and they would probably cut all the parts that showed the real personality.

    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It was like having Carol Burnett in my house telling these stories. I grew up watching her show. When I watched her I just knew we were friends. The book confirmed it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Carol, duh!


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

    Her book would have been amazing anyway, I know her style of speaking and would have read it that way. Her telling her own story and chuckling at moments reliving the story made it special.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did. I apologize to my family for not making dinner that night.
