An insider's view of how the British upper class live and commune. Almost like spying - wonderful.
As with any wonderful audible book, I forget the narrator and become lost in the story.
As a devotee to everything British, I appreciated the perspective and detailed views on just about everything (food, dress, etiquette).
I would not recommend this book. I love JK Rowling, and perhaps I hold her to a higher expectation - though I did keep reading and hoping there would be a little light in the story - there was not.
Very well done in every way.
Heartburn is an intimate accurate depiction - optimistic, funny, yet heartbreaking - of a marriage crumbling at the hands of infidelity.
Key lime pie (you have to be there).
This is my first time listening to a book read by Meryl Streep. As we have come to expect, Meryl becomes her characters, and in this case I felt like she channeling Nora - at times I thought it was Nora reading. I read this after the passing of Nora Ephron (sigh) and I felt like I had the benefit of one more of her brilliant stories. A true treat.
The Help is one of the best audible books I've listened to. It is brilliantly done from the perspective and voice of each character. It is an authentic and beautiful narration, a treat from beginning to end. You won't be able to put your iPod down.
The Help provides a personal, heartfelt and in depth picture of what it was like to be black and a woman in the 1960s in the South. This amazing story also points out how any variation (too tall, too poor, too ugly, too pretty) may easily be ridiculed. The incredible moments are when people aren't afraid to look at the differences, and realize it is that very thing that makes our lives rich and wonderful.
