message 1: by Denise (new)

Denise Alcaraz LOVED this book. Read twice. My favorite characters were Minnie & Celia. I read in an interview with Stockett that when writing the book, she envisioned no one other than Octavia Spencer as Minnie. Dreams do come true. Great review James.

Amazing how hearing it on tape can bring those reactions. I really need to give it a chance.... listening to books.

Do it James. I've been listening to Audible.com since 2004. I have listened to hundreds of books. Aside from my music, I listen to books on my commute to work almost daily. And sometimes while cooking, doing chores, or exercising, I listen. I read in all forms. If you are a member of Audible, it's cheaper to buy an audiobook than the physical copy. And if you really hate the audiobook you bought, you can return it. But if you want more info, PM me. It is a painless process and I've never had a problem with them. :)

Amazing ..."
I appreciate it. I have about 20 books on my back-log to read right now, but as soon as I get thru those, I am going to pick up a couple to try on audio. I worry a bit that I might get distracted but until I try it, I'll never know.

That is true, some people's attention cannot be held with an audiobook, but not most. I know some people like that. If you want a truly FREE book, I can send you Red Rising!!!!! Or any other I have. LOL. There is no hard sell....trust me on this. When you are ready.

You are awesome. I will be getting back to you soon. I did want to read that one.


message 19: by Pamela (new)

Pamela Mclaren Thank you James for your review. I was in the same position. I gave it five stars when I read it and I remember the book well but I apparently didn't bother writing a review. When I first joined, I posted a lot of books that I truly loved but i had read them so long ago that i didn't give them reviews. The Help was not one of them, so I'm not sure why there is no review. I'll have to go back, like your did, and do it justice.

I've heard a few folks on here who have lost reviews that magically disappear on occasion. Maybe you did write it! :)

Looking forward to see what you end up putting in it when you do finally write the new one. Ha!

Jenn "JR" I listened to this as an audiobook on a cross-country drive - the voicing was fantastic!

message 27: by Kelly (new)

Kelly I've seen the film and really enjoyed it, but not read the book yet. But I think it's still really relevant for today.


message 28: by James (new)

James Completely agree!


message 29: by Justin (new)

Justin Brendel I have been meaning to retro-review as well. I was just giving stars when I started using Goodreads
