One of my first books on Audible and I could not have enjoyed a book more
A terrific listen,would recommend this super interesting story that you will want to keep listening to.
The narrator was excellent
The cast for this is perfect, each voice is distinct and exactly as I imagined, Minnie and Abileen in particular sound beautiful. The Help is a wonderful story in whatever form it is published, its just an auditory delight to hear it read so well. Mesmerising.
This is an amazingly written book, and read brilliantly. I found this book touches many issues close to me as I have friends who have had issues like this in the past and brought a true representative. xxx
I just loved this book and couldn't stop listening. It completely draws you in and is full of suspense. Its hard to believe this was set in such relatively recent times. I will listen to this again and again I am sure. Its definitely one of the best audio books that I have listened to and I highly recommend it.
I fantastic book to listen to. I'm not usually keen on books with a number of different narrators, feeling that this often distracts from the book itself and makes it sound more like a dramatisation. But in this case, the different narrators have helped to bring the book alive for each of the characters. Each narrator still uses different 'voices' to speak the words of different characters helping to emphasise each characters' views of the situation and issues that are being talked about.
The subject of the book gives an interesting insight into the appalling nature of the racial segregation laws which were imposed in America in what is relatively recent times
This got me through my commutes to college every day. I couldn't wait to get on the bus just to listen to more. Beautifully written and brilliantly read. I'm yet to find a new book to listen to that is as good, so I'm just re-listening. have since bought the book and the DVD. Just in love with it!
Listening to this book was pure joy. Not one, but 4 narrators cleverly brought the characters to life - this is audio listening at its best. I quickly felt I knew the characters and could picture them in my mind. I've not been to see the film, as I think it will destroy my experience!
I thought this book was brilliant, the narrators really brought the characters to life. Can't wait for Kathryn Stockett to write another book, and hopefully it will be transferred to an audio book.
This is a fantastic book that should be read by all. I read the book first, and then got the audiobook in the hopes of enjoying the wonderful accents that I detected in the printed version. I was well impressed with the performances. Highly recommendable.
