    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!"
    "Should be voted the best book of 2009!"
    Overall

    The voices of the characters were so well written and performed that I felt like I was a part of the story. I became so engrossed while listening that for 18 hours every free moment became about "The Help". This story was very moving and touched a very special place in my heart! I can't wait for the next book that Ms. Stockett writes.

    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    Would you listen to Defending Jacob again? Why?

    I will be re-listening to this fantastic book. I am afraid that in my haste to keep listening I missed some crucial details. This was an edge of your seat drama that ended with a real twist.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Defending Jacob?

    The ending really made me want to reread to book to see if I could see it coming if I had been listening at a slower pace.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tried to listen to it in one sitting, but alas it took me two days.

    Story

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    John S. Atherton says: "I give the book a five but I won't buy it..."
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    I could hardly leave my car...this is a must read. It is unusual to have more than one actor reading the parts, so this was quite a nice surprise. It made it much easier to follow, as well as, more enjoyable.
