The Help named audiobook of the year

15th November 2010

Kathryn Stockett's The Help has been chosen as the best unabridged audiobook of the year by a specialist audio publisher.

A competition hosted by Whole Story Audio Books saw the title, which is narrated by Jenna Lamia, Bahni Turpin, Octavia Spencer and Cassandra Campbell, named the best production of 2010.

The winner of the prize is determined by the quality of the narrators' performances over any other factor.

Dominic White, publishing manager at the firm, commented: 'We all agreed that The Help is one of the greatest audio performances we have heard. It's the perfect combination of writing and narration, a true modern classic in audiobook form.'

Other audiobooks on the ten-strong shortlist included The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams, Colin Bateman's The Day of the Jack Russell, Caught by Harlan Coben, Jilly Cooper's Jump! and Engleby by Sebastian Faulks.

Whoops! by John Lanchester, Emily Mackie's And This Is True, Remainder by Tom McCarthy and Raphael Selbourne's Beauty were the remaining finalists.

Stockett was recently included on the international author of the year shortlist in the Galaxy National Book Awards 2010 for The Help, but the honour ultimately went to Jonathan Franzen with Freedom.
