    A family living in a makeshift shanty in urban Kenya scurries to find gifts of any kind for the impending Christmas holiday. A Rwandan girl relates her family's struggles to maintain a facade of normalcy amid unspeakable acts. A young brother and sister cope with their uncle's attempt to sell them into slavery. Aboard a bus filled with refugees - a microcosm of today's Africa - a Muslim boy summons his faith to bear a treacherous ride across Nigeria.

    This book invokes so many different emotions. I makes you wonder how much of it is fiction because the narrators did such a wonderful job at reading the story that one would think that they were telling their own life stories. I love this book and I recommend it.

    FOR RENT: Top two floors of beautifully renovated brownstone, 1300 sq. ft., 2BR 2BA, eat-in kitchen, one block to parks and playgrounds. No broker's fee. Susan and Alex Wendt have found their dream apartment. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric. And the elderly handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the basement. But the rent is so low, it's too good to pass up. Big mistake.

    Barbara says: "Fantastic narration! Good, creepy story."
    "What scary movies are made out of."

    As soon as I saw this book on the home page, I know that I would end up listening to it! I could not stop seconding guessing myself. First of all, the idea of bedbugs only makes my skin itch. Now, take a new apartment add in a nice landlord (which is creepy by its self; but in Brooklyn?), and sprinkle a whole lot of blood-sucking bugs. This book freaked me out and some parts were out right disgusting. But that is what scary movies are made of.

    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.

    I saw a review that said it only took the reader three days to read this book and I thought that was impossible for a person like me, with a full time job and full time college courses to complete; however, I was wrong. I completed listening to this book in less than three days because I couldn't stop. I would finish one part and go to class wondering what would happen next in the book. Eventually, I just sat in the back and listened through the lectures, lol! I held my breath with Minny, waiting for the scream, and was scared the whole time for the women. This book gives a whole new meaning to 'speaking out'. I really enjoyed this book and I know the next person, after me, will also. Thanks to the author, four times the thanks to the narrators. You guys did a wonderful job.
