I have already read this book many times as I just love the story but I think I enjoyed the audio version even more. Fantastically well read/acted and I was completely absorbed. I normally only listen to comedy audio books but I am so glad that I took a chance and downloaded this. Cannot recommend highly enough. Brilliant.
Love to read and love to Listen.
Big change from what i normally listern to but i was so drawn in but this.
loved it, recommended.
The narrators were so good.I felt I knew all the characters very well and I looked forward to meeting each one as they reappeared throughout the book.
I loved the story of Aibhilin toilet training the little girl.This encapsulated the essence of the book -,love,bigotry,similarity and humour and the fact that our lives are shaped by those closest to us in childhood..
The characters were so different and I felt the narrators created the essence of each one.I loved Minnie and Aibhilin.
A lovely book.Shocking to think that life was like this in my life time and continues to be like this in some places.Made me examine my attitudes.
I so rarely want to listen to audiobooks more than once - I normally just delete and move onto the next one. But The Help will be a book I go back to again (and possibly again!).
The gentle storyline is superbly narrated by the different voices for the various chapters - and the story unfolds through the eyes of a group of amazing characters. The characters develop through the book and the strong bonds between "The Help" and their employer families are touching.
I usually go for crime/thriller/biography books - but I'm so glad I took a chance on this one. It was just perfect!
Brilliant narration throughout, I loved listening to the Southern drawl and the fact that there was more than one narrator.
I laughed a lot in places, especially when it came to Minnie's character.
I absolutely loved this book and it is the best audiobook I have listened too so far thanks to both the story and the narration.
Luckily I listened to this before I watched the film.
I absolutely loved this audio book the story is engrossing, emotional and very thought provoking and the performance only adds to the quality of the story.
I would definitely recommend this as it tells a poignant story in an engaging way about a crucial point in time.
I was suggested this book after returning a disappointing book. I did not expect it to live up to other people's praise, but it really did. I loved the different narrators and enjoyed hearing the story unfold through various people's eyes. The historical backdrop was interesting and added a meaty layer without being preachy or nostalgic. I will definitely listen to this again.
This was my very first audible book. And I was hooked from the start the readers were just fantastic I was in that moment of time. Reading the book myself would not have the same effect there voices made it so much more then a book I was involved with these women in the book thank you for my first experience with a audio books I will be back. Fantastic writing by Kathryn Stockett made even better by the narrator's.
