    Story
    (110)

    In one year Julia Sweeney got a divorce (amicable), bought a small bungalow in Hollywood, and looked forward to a life that said, "Here dwells a happily single young woman!" But then the axe fell. Her younger brother, Mike, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and moved in with her. Her parents came to be with Mike and moved in with her, too. Julia was now on seriously intimate terms with the people she had spent half a lifetime growing up away from.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    She tells the story very well...


    Has God Said,'Ha!' turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Sweeney’s performances?

    l...maybe later...


    Could you see God Said,'Ha!' being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    the audio book kept skipping at the end of the point she was getting to ... I do not know if that was on purpose or just a glitch....I want to return the book and get something else.

    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 did you love best about The Help?

    This was a simple story of a time in our history. I got to kind of understand what my mother had to go through.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Help?

    To me the part in the book where the mother was preparing her daughter on how to act and work around the house that she would be going into. The do's and dont's of working in other peoples houses.


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

    It really added a word picture to the storys from my mother and what she had to go through - it made the book for me.


    If you could take any character from The Help out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would really like to take the pie maker out to dinner...you know why!!!...lol


    Any additional comments?

    I had listen to the book before I got to see the movie...I really enjoyed the book better!!!
