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...
What more can I say that previous reviewers have not covered? I thought I might be disappointed as I'd seen the film first.. This was not the case, this audiobook is an amazing performance and highly recommended.
Such a fantastic story, this book takes you on a journey. It gives an insight into how life must have been for the maids in the southern states. It made me laugh and made me cry. Beautifully narrated, this is a must listen.
The story is great and the readers are all really, really good. I actually think this book is better as an audiobook, because the readers bring so much more colour to the characters.
What a great book, I was so surprised how good this book was. I only brought it because of the other reviews and I am so glad I did, one of the best books I've listened too.
