AN UTTERLY COMPELLING BOOK. TAKES YOU TO THE EDGE OF DISBELIEF AT THE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL SAVAGERY THAT ANYONE COULD COMMIT...AND THAT ANYBODY COULD SURVIVE .YOU FEEL SO DRAWN INTO THE UNFOLDING HORROR THAT YOU FEEL ITS AS THOUGH YOU WERE THERE, IF YOU ONLY READ/LISTEN TO ONE BOOK THIS YEAR MAKE SURE IT'S THIS MODERN MASTERPIECE. HAPPY READING!
Did not think that this type of book was for me, looked at reviews and decided to chance it...really,really glad i did, one word,......BRILLIANT
Good to listen to. Not incredibly well written but still quite grabbing and exciting at points. Characters are very easy to get on with.
This book was very moving and up lifting. Loved the fact that they had several narrator to tell the story. It was like listening to a play. Would love to read another book by K Stockett.
The southern voices made it real! The characters came to life and the story gave the reader an insight to life there and then,
wonderful read, loved the characters and found myself disgusted that the world can be like this even today.
I don't know how accurate the book is from a historical point of view, but it rang true to me, and the truth is terrifying. The bravery of the main characters is inspiring, and the threat to them for daring to go against the racist society feels palpable. A seriously good read.
One of the first audiobooks I have downloaded and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I love how the narrator's voice reflects the accent typical of the area the book is based in. I have shared this with my partner (who doesn't read) and his mum. Both have enjoyed this. We have been listening to it whilst redecorating and it is so enjoyable. I loved this book when I read it, and love that I can carry on enjoying it by listening to the story (much better than the film).
This book had me crying and laughing in equal measure, I loved seeing the relationships between the characters unfold. A real roller coaster of a listen; can't rate it highly enough.
