Comedy of errors
I most loved that the story makes you root for the characters because of their imperfections.
His voice is memorizing. His variety of voices is amazing.
History student with VERY eclectic tastes. Too busy to actually sit down and read most of the time so audiobooks have saved my sanity.
This is the second Heyer novel I've listened to (the first was Sylvester). I really only downloaded them because Richard Armitage was narrating. I didn't really expect to like these books, as'm not much of a romance fan, but I'm glad that I was sorely mistaken in this.
Richard Armitage does an amazing job narrating. I could listen to his voice all day.
As for the story, there are parts of the narrative that are a little silly, but overall it is super entertaining. The characters are marvelous and remind me a little of Jane Austen characters. I love the strong independent Venetia and absolutely adore Demerel, the rake.
I'm definitely planning on reading/listening to more Heyer.
It was entertaining
The fact that it was "abridge". My mistake for not picking up on that, but Venetia and Sylvester were my first two orders so I blew it.
Absolutely! I'm not a fan of romances however the narrator has such a gift for voices and dialects as well as a voice to make you melt
Only if Richard Armitage was the narrator
the hero of course
Excellent performance, wonderful story. I failed to notice this is abridged before purchasing, so was disappointed by the missing portions of this familiar story.
Rescuing the kittens.
This is a great story about a woman who goes her own way in a time when that is not encouraged.
When I downloaded this, I did not notice who read it, and was delighted to discover it was Richard Armitage. Huge fan of the novel, I also wish it weren't abridged. I think whoever cut it was a little too harsh. And I could listen to him read on and on.
The Convenient Marriage
I dislike abridgments, especially of books I've read before, and I knew after listening that "something" was missing, but it still carried me happily along with comedy and romance. If an unabridged version comes to Audible, though, I'll get it, and I'm avoiding the other abridged Heyer books, despite Richard Armitage's excellent narration.
I really loved this audio. Good cast of characters, the main characters are intelligent, witty and fun. The story was interesting and never got boring. The narrator does a good job, Mrs Danny sounds a little deep and off key but it actually suits her character. I didn't feel cheated that it was abridged, the story was full and delightful. Enjoy.
