    Story
    (2224)

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

    Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands.

    S says: "One of my top 10 listens of the year!"
    "OMG, what a find!"

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"
    "New fan of Ron McLarty"

    Where does The Memory of Running rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high up the ladder. I am grateful that Stephen King mentioned this book so that I might stumble upon this shining star.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Smithy, of course.


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

    He brings Smithy to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book is full of moments. I don't want to spoil it for any other readers.


    Any additional comments?

    Self-discovery and relationships are the highlights of this gem. The story of Bethenny and how it's woven throughout the story is amazing.

    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!"
    "LOVED "The Help"! I was transported!"
