I don't know how accurate the book is from a historical point of view, but it rang true to me, and the truth is terrifying. The bravery of the main characters is inspiring, and the threat to them for daring to go against the racist society feels palpable. A seriously good read.
One of the first audiobooks I have downloaded and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I love how the narrator's voice reflects the accent typical of the area the book is based in. I have shared this with my partner (who doesn't read) and his mum. Both have enjoyed this. We have been listening to it whilst redecorating and it is so enjoyable. I loved this book when I read it, and love that I can carry on enjoying it by listening to the story (much better than the film).
This book had me crying and laughing in equal measure, I loved seeing the relationships between the characters unfold. A real roller coaster of a listen; can't rate it highly enough.
I loved this audible book and can not wait to see the film. The narators are so good it was a pleasure to listen to them. The story is both funny, sad and educational. Thank you Kathryn.
Completely captivated by this book and excellently narrated. I would highly recommend this to everyone, didn't want it to end, the story will stay with me.
This is one of those books that will stay with me forever. I had butterflies the whole way through dreading what might happen to these wonderful women; I was so engrossed in the story. The narrators were the stars for me, bringing it to life and delivering superb performances. Absolutely a five star listen.
Another book where I didn't want it to end. I really enjoyed and savoured every minute. I even WANTED to tidy the kids bedrooms so I could listen to it! The deep south accent is fab. The book is exceedingly funny . Enjoy!
This is the best read audio book I have ever come across. Merely reading the book myself would not have brought the characters to life the way this audio book succeeds in doing. The story is fascinating and interwoven with cliffhangers.Funny, sad, thrilling and heartwarming. Extremely well written. Deserves all the accolade and more. A rare gem. Don't let it pass you by.
