I am a hairstylist that enjoys the outdoors. I love listening to books as I fall asleep. I rode a Harley, Drive na RV, and cut beautiful flowers to put in my home. Give me piece and quiet, Give me friends and fun. I choose to be happy and enjoy life.

    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.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Help the most enjoyable?

    The voices of the characters made it so real. Listening to them tell their story made you feel their pain, shame, and glory. You forget this book is fiction.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The movie left out some of the best parts in this book. When you listen to this book you are in the kitchen baking the pies, you are on the side walk laughing at all the commodes. You are there as it happens


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book makes you feel the shame and glory of what some people had endured in the past. Although it is fiction we all know it tells the story of what some maids had endured.

    Way better than the movie

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    To go from riches to rags and fight for your life can be somewhat horrifying. To fall in love along the way can complicate life as well. Watching the big guy go down and getting the satisfaction of revenge can be sweet.

    When Dr. Rennie Newton goes to jury duty, she delivers a "not guilty" verdict in the murder case against contract killer Ricky Lozada. She will learn to regret this decision, because Rennie's trial with Lozada doesn't end with his acquittal. A colleague of hers is soon brutally slain and when Lozada begins an earnest courtship, it becomes clear that he is obsessed with having her. In order to defeat Lozada, Rennie forms an uneasy alliance with a detective who has a personal agenda for Lozada.

    What made the experience of listening to The Reversal the most enjoyable?

    The suspense in this book is just as great as all the other Harry Bosch mysteries.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry Bosch is always mysterious and calculating. You are always waiting for his next move.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Giles – was your favorite?

    always Harry Bosch


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I can not put this book down until I have listened to the whole story. The great thing about this audible I can get my house work done and listen at the same time. I have listened to almost all of the Harry Bosch series. I am never disappointed.

    Love the Harry Bosch!!

    Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J. Harrison delivers one of his most whimsical performances.
