A pleasure to listen to. Some inconsistent accents but otherwise really great.
I usually listen to the books in the car, but I was so wrapped up in this one that I had to set it up in my flat and listened to the last half all in one evening. Great story.
I have been enjoying listening to audio books as I cant hold a book to read it.I have read over 60 books and some I have read more than once
The Help was ok but I think that because I had watched the film before the book it spoiled it. I still enjoyed it very much.
Wow! This is where audible really comes into its own. The readers brought this book alive in a way that reading it myself could never have done. The whole thing is so vibrant and full on that I could have been there. I love a book that makes you think as well as entertains, and I learned such a lot from this. The characters are so well drawn that you're on side from the first page, willing things to change and desperate for the "baddies" to get their come-uppance. This book will make you angry, it'll make you sad, and even make you laugh. I highly recommend it to anyone who'll listen!
This was a bit of a shot in the dark for me, so I was really pleased that the book was so enjoyable. An interesting comment on the social attitudes and racism that was inherent in this period, it does show the glimmer of light that not everyone held the same bigoted views. In turn funny and serious, it's definitely one to listen to.
Very good, courageous women putting everything on the line for the hope of a better life. Details the ignorance of the time. Very thought provoking, looking back it doesn't seem possible that these women were treated so abysmally, this would make very uncomfortable reading for some.
Well written and well read, i will listen again to this recording.
Thought the accent would annoy me but really got into it. amazing characters and some great plot twists. could not put it down. didn't want it to end.
I was apprehensive about this audiobook as I'm not great on American history - however I was pleasantly surprised as I enjoyed nearly every minute of this audiobook. The southern accents take a little while to get used to, but they really do add to the authenticity of the story. This novel is funny, rich and engaging and I was sad when it was over!
