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.
i absolutley loved it and was walking around the house hooked to my i pod for a few days, ignored the kids and husband, cooked, worked and everything else with my i pod on as i could not put it down (so to speak)
a fantastic book, great listen, as read by many voices to give best listen, just didnt want this book to end, and would reccomend this book so high on everyones list to listen to , loved it . V
Funny, poignant, political, informative and thoroughly entertaining and engaging.
As a 50+ this is an important reminder of how far things have moved on during my lifetime from How ignorant and arrogant we were.
If only I could write a review that would do this book justice. It is so beautifully written and narrated. I have re-listened with my daughter and want to keep repeating to her the words in this book "you is kind, you is smart, you is important". It is the kind of book that makes you treasure what you have and gives hope. It's also very shocking, especially when you think this was set only 50 years ago. The film won an oscar but the book is worth 10. The book is one that will stay with me for a long time.
