A wonderfully read book that made it hard to get out of the car. My 12 year old daughter loved the bits she heard.The dry humour of the story was highlighted by the droll rendition. The narrator was excellent and I often felt she was the actual writer. Bianca Amato had an easy accent to listen to.
The Help book is so much better than the movie which takes references from the book and places them out of context and perspective. That said, the movie was excellent if you seperate it as a different beast!
The beautiful voices of the narrators bought The Help audiobook alive with humour and sensitivity. I am from New Zealand and would have found it more difficult appreciate the depth of language in the book with it's content of Southern American dialogue, if reading it on the page.
I have laughed and commiserated with the maids and suitably disliked Hilly with her smug accent and attitudes.
The maids speech is eloquent and descriptive and Skeeter is believable as she begins to question her own beliefs and the behaviour of her peers and superiors towards "the help"
