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.
A Very good listen, it had me hooked from beginning to end! Thought the different people narrating the different characters gave it life and made it interesting to listen to. It was also very well written and has made me want to watch the film although I doubt it can top the book! Definitely worth listening to!
I am hopelessly in love with this book. Its so touching! Fantastic characters read and acted beautifully. Highs and lows throughout frustrating and moving all in one. I love love love this book!
I LOVED this book.
Apart from it being a brilliant story it is beautifully narrated and brought to vivid life by the narrators. I couldn't stop listening and was plugged in every opportunity I got. Always the same with a good book, can't wait to get to the end and then feel really sad it's finished.
Thank you Kathryn Stockett - pure brilliance!
I couldn't get enough of this book, in the morning getting ready for work, on the train, at lunch time and on the journey home again! The voices of the characters were perfect and turned this into a really personal experience, allowing me a deeper understanding of their emotions. I would love a sequel!
This was my first Audible download and it was definitely a good choice. I'm still only part-way through this story, but I look forward to those idle moments when I am free to listen uninterrupted - if I ever have to concentrate on something else as well, such as driving in traffic, I lose the thread of the narrative and have to rewind.
The Southern US accent transports me to Mississippi in a way I couldn't do if I was reading the text myself, and I'm loving it. The narration is tender, insightful and compassionate. I suspect the storyline is going to give me a few jolts along the way that will bring tears to my eyes, but the wonder of the audiobook is that I cannot cheat and jump ahead to see what is going to happen. With some electronic books I find this frustrating, but with this one I think it keeps you in the moment.
I shall certainly write an update when I've finished it, but I don't expect to drop my 5-stars, already so well-deserved!
