    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!"
    "The Help"
    Overall

    I loved this book from the moment I started listening. It is well read and is both funny and serious. I did not want it to end. If you liked The Secret Life of Bees, you will love this too.

    "The Secret Place", a board where the girls at St Kilda's School can pin up their secrets anonymously, is normally a mishmash of gossip and covert cruelty, but today someone has used it to reignite the stalled investigation into the murder of handsome, popular Chris Harper. Stephen joins forces with the abrasive Detective Antoinette Conway to find out who and why.

    Pamela says: "Well...I really liked 50% of it"

    What disappointed you about The Secret Place?

    I usually enjoy details and don't mind really digging into the characters, etc. but this was so drawn out with detail I couldn't wait for the story to be over. I wanted to find out the ending but daydreamed a lot during the read because tuning out for a bit didn't mean you missed anything.


    What could Tana French have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shorten the story. Way too much detail about nothing.
