    Story

    I really like Betty White. Her honesty and integrity are refreshing in a world where those things can be hard to find. She and I are also kindred spirits where animals are concerned. Those stories were the best part of this book for me, as I could totally relate to them. But there weren't many of those, and I found the book to be overall lacking in depth. I enjoyed listening to Betty read it, but I was a little disappointed. Still like & admire the author, though!

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    I just don't see what all of the hype was about. It's a pretty twisted story - a group of teens is forced to compete with each other to the death for the amusement of spectators. But I didn't even find it very interesting or well written. Maybe teenagers would enjoy it, but I wouldn't recommend this book to other adults.

    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.

    If you could sum up The Help in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Endearing, & Relevant


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

    They don't just read the book, they ARE the book. Very well acted.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely loved this audiobook. It was performed so well by the readers that I felt as though I were listening to a play. A funny, touching, important story that sucks you in from the first words. Very well done.
