    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.

    Overall

    This was really enjoyable listening. It is a human story of the South. I loved the characters, some of them nasty as heck and others sweet as honey. I had to research the author to see if she's black. I think it's great that a book can fool me into assuming it must have been written by a black author. Not a predictable story either. I feel like I really got my money's worth with this one. I also loved the narrators who brought the story to life.

    The companions believe they have slain the evil Dragon Highlord Verminaard. They have rescued the refugees from Pax Tharkas and taken them to a valley in the Kharolis mountains.

    Overall

    I suppose this book could entertain some older folks like myself if we were looking for a cute fairy tale but I was sorry to find out I needed to listen as if I were a juvenile. I would have probably loved it in high school. It's just not very deep. I wish this was communicated before I spent the credit. So I'm warning you all who think you're going to listen to a mature fantasy genre novel - this ain't it.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    "Great Storytelling"
    Overall

    Listening to audiobook and can't easily pull myself away. The narrator enhances the story. He is fantastic - it's amazing how he brings out the emotions, the snideness and innocence, etc. of characters through his tone and accents. He is a true actor. The author is a gifted storyteller. Unless someone tells me otherwise, I believe this story contains kernels of historical reality - familial love and hatred and hidden loyalties that underlie the winning and losing of royal and lordly power in previous ages. I feel that I'm looking through a window into the past that is more magical and interesting than any other.
