Do or Do Not There is no Try. - Yoda
Unlike her other books, this one has no surprises or twists. But it unfolds beautifully and you can't help but root for the kind hearted Freddie.
It was a little long. The characters were all kinds of fun though. Her Regency novels are much more entertaining than the detective books.
Phyllida Nash is one of my favorite readers for Heyer! And this was just brilliant, I'll have to listen to it again. Loved it! The voices are fabulous! Nothing I didn't like.
A complete and utter delight. The language and the mores of another time are revealed in this loving and silly romp.
The characters are hilarious, the reader's delivery flawless, and the beautifully-balanced plot the type to create just the right amount of anxiety about where it's going, then comfort and deight the reader with the hoped-for resolution.
Cotillion has always been one of my favourite Heyer novels. Freddie is such a wonderfully atypical hero. Phyllida Nash does a beautiful job of producing not just different voices, but definite characters that are very much in tune with the author's work. I find her voice pleasant to listen to in general.
I can warmly recommend this to anyone who already enjoys Georgette Heyer, as well those who are just getting to know her.
