Publisher's Summary

Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Aibileen is a black maid raising her 17th white child.

Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is the sassiest woman in Mississippi: a wonderful cook with a gossip's tongue.

Graduate Skeeter returns from college with ambitions, but her mother will not be happy until she's married.

Although world's apart, Skeeter, Aibileen, and Minny's lives converge over a clandestine project that will change the town of Jackson forever.

    "The Help"

    I loved this audiobook so much that when I got to the end I started playing it all over again. I've already reserved the DVD. The different narraters with their deep Southern Accents make it such a joy to listen to. The main characters, Abeline, Mini and Miss Skeeter are brought to life and I felt priveliged to be part of their fictional life for 2 weeks. I have laughed and cried. its definaltely my best audiobook so far to date.

    "Absolutely wonderful"

    I have downloaded a lot of books from audible, many of which I've enjoyed immensely, but this one is just wonderful. I cannot praise it enough. Not only is it a great book which tackles a challenging subject in a really interesting and sensitive way, but the people reading the different characters are just fantastic. The book comes vividly to life and I find it very difficult to tear myself away. I really don't want it to end!

    "Brilliant!"

    I loved this as an audio book! I can struggle with accents (even in my head) and it was wonderful to hear the deep southern american accent being read to me so beautifully.

    Would highly recommend.

    "Amazing"

    I strongly recommend this book. The story defies genre preferences. I'm a passionate Sci-FI girl (maybe 1 in 10 of my audiobooks are outside Sci-Fi) and I couldn't get enough of this book. I was sad when the book ended because I wanted to story to go and on and on and on..... I've talked three of my friends into downloading this book just so we could discuss and dissect it. Its wonderful and amazing.

    "Brilliant"

    I loved this book. It is superbly written and superbly narrated. The multiple narratives are easy to follow and the stories of the women are absorbing and feel as if they could easily be authentic. I was engrossed from beginning to end and very sorry when it was over. Highly recommended.
