Oh my goodness, this book is brilliant. the narrators do an amazing job, their voices draw you into the story and I could hardly bare to turn this off.......brilliant!
The characters are really brought to life in a fantastic audio book. I listen to audio books whilst driving and, the hours just flew by. Well worth listening to.
This is possibly one of the best audiobooks that I've ever listened to, the different voices for different characters make it really interesting, especially with the southern accents. I often feel a bit let down by a.books narrators but not this one.
Get it, you won't be disappointed.
I wasn't sure about this purchase but I am so glad I went ahead ... It is a great story - and brilliantly well read by the various readers. (Its also a good long read - enough to while away two very long car journeys - in fact, when I pulled into various service stations, I was delayed by the need to keep listening.....).
Not only did I enjoy the story, I also learned a lot - at time shockingly so ... about the reality of being black in the southern USA. But what makes it one of my all time favorites are the feelings it evoked - sometimes dread, sometimes laughter, and one time an unexpected and unconscious gasp aloud - I was so enthralled by, and engaged with, the story. If a book (any book) makes me involuntarily react emotionally, its a winner. I highly recommend this audio book - you will not regret listening to it.
This is a great audio book, it kept me interested all the way through.
There were some great characters that were brought to life by the excellent narrators.
It is one of those books that I could read over and again.
Absolutely brilliant. I couln't leave it alone. I also watched the film but as usual alot was left out so make sure you listen to the book first.
I am an avid listener of Audible books. I am always looking out for interesting new titles.
The narrators really made this book. Full of insite and a great storyline. Characters are well drawn. Definitely recommended
This is my favourite audiobook so far, I didn't want it to end. The narration is superb, bringing the characters to life. The story is a brilliant - it tackles US civil rights from an angle I hadn't come across before and does it with a humour and warmth that really engages. I will listen to this again.
This was a great listen, aided by multiple narrators. It did make me so sad though, that the maids were treated with such disdain, and believed to be dirty etc, but the whites had no problem making them rear their children and cater to their every whim.
Skeeter is a would be journalist, she decides to write a book regarding the plight of the coloured Help, and sees just how unfair life was for them. Minnie mentioned above is a tour de force, you'll love her parts.
I really loved this audiobook. The narrators are all so good.
Hearing the narrators' great voices, accents and great acting, made it all come alive.
By reading the book only, the story would have never been so vivid!
Listening, you can just smell, feel it all...
