Love Tina Fey but was disappointed with this book. Her narration, while expressive and enjoyable, contained so many sotto voce asides where the volume dropped off so much that it was difficult to hear, therefore I frequently missed portions of the material the first time around. I ended up having to skip backward and turn up the volume to hear those parts - very frustrating. Also, based on other reviews I was expecting laugh-out-loud funny, but this didn't deliver. If you like Tina, you'll like this; amusing, but not a "must read."
The talented ensemble cast of narrators brought this well-written piece to life. Stockett is a gifted storyteller. Her characters are worthy of the listener's empathy, disdain and compassion. Great job!
Minnie's account of "the pie" when at last she reveals her dirty secret.
The characters in the story, each with her own distinct personality and quirks, came alive through the narrators' acting ability, giving the characters depth and dimension.
