The #1 New York Times bestselling novel and basis for the Academy Award–winning film.
 
Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, who's always taken orders quietly, but lately she's unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She's full of ambition, but without a husband, she's considered a failure. Together these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town.

I am sure that I would have loved this book had I read it, but the narrators added such an amazing component to this story. The voices and characters instantly plunged me into the story that I hoped would never end! This book is in my top 5 favorites of all time!

5 minutes in and I loved it. I listened to the book on CD and the voices were great, they gave you a real feeling for the characters. I have told all of my friends to read or listen to this book.

AudiobooksNow review by Joanne on 2011-04-16 17:04:32

i've just finished this audio book The Help. the narration alone was worth listening to and the book itself was fascinating.As someone who has lived in New England for most of my 66 years and only recently moved to the south, it was an enlightening experience. I loved this book and would highly recommend it. one of those books that your sorry when it ends,full of fascinating characters that you feel you know.

I love this book and the movie. I am glad I watch the movie first them listen to the book. It is awesome. I could not stop listening to this. As soon as I left work I listen at work too I jumped in the truck and plug it in the CD player.And as soon as I got home, I put it back in the CD player and walked around the house with it. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time.
