    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.

    "Best audiobook I've ever heard"
    Overall

    I cried when this book ended, because I wasn't going to get to hear anymore about the lives of the amazing characters, whom I'd grown to feel like I knew and loved. The story was amazingly written, sad, hopeful, inspiring, and humbling. The actors who portrayed the women in the book were fantastic, and I feel lucky that I listened to this book, rather than read it in print, because I really think something magical would have been lost without being able to hear the voices of the women. I still miss this story, weeks after finishing it--it was one of the most moving books I've read to date. Do not hesitate to download this book!

    One Fifth Avenue, the Art Deco beauty towering over one of Manhattan's oldest and most historically hip neighborhoods, is a one-of-a-kind address, the sort of building you have to earn your way into--one way or another. For the women in Candace Bushnell's new novel, One Fifth Avenue, this edifice is essential to the lives they've carefully establishhed--or hope to establish.

    "Pretentious bubblegum listening"
    Overall

    I'm only half way through this book, but I don't think my reaction to it will change as I finish listening. I'd never read Candace Bushnell before, so maybe it's typical of her books, but the tone of this book is very pretentious. Perhaps its because of the subject matter, but it's a bit off putting. I think the narrator's faux British accent contributes, too. The book isn't brilliant, but it is light weight reading if you don't feel like doing much heavy lifting on your commute.
