Although it took a bit of time, perhaps one hour of listening, to "get into" the personalities of the story, I found this to be a completely beautiful and thought-provoking novel. Barbara Rosenblat is a genius storyteller. She is funny, sublime, and absolutely perfect in her role. Honestly, this is one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading (listening) and I highly recommend it. It is a literature that makes you think about it for days as well as cry when you think about the characters. If I could give this 6 stars, I would!!!
The narration could not have been better. Perfect for the story.
Hard to say, they were all excellent! Lucy is my favorite, however.
Jenna Lamia is hands-down the very best narrator. I will listen to anything she narrates and "Saving CeeCee Hunneycutt is certainly worth the read. Hated to hear it end......maybe a sequel?
Other than "The Help", this is my favorite read. I couldn't put my ipod down. Listened for hours and sad when it ended. Definitely one of the best. The narration is perfect.
From the first chapter, THE HELP is completely mesmerizing. I listened to this every second I had a chance to put my ipod in my ear. It is one of those books that you wish would go on forever. I was so sad when it ended, not that it was a sad ending, but that the book was over. Is there a sequel? I certainly hope so! I can't say enough about the narrators (who are perfect and believable), the story line, and the way that Ms. Stockett captures the essence of each and every one of the characters. If I could give THE HELP more than five stars, trust me, I would give it ten. You will not be disappointed.
