The story was really great and the author has a sense of hummer. I think the book might be a bit better in paper back, but just maybe. The reader did a great job on the voices but in between, for example, "he said" "full of mock sadness" "his voice strangled" is like a robot speaking. It can be a bit concerting and distracting but is much better then many other monotone readers. So voices are great but in between when actions are being described, is not so great. Worth listening though for the story.
Day dreaming book lover!
Wonderful performance and story. The absolute best in romance. I laughed and cried listening to this book and Susan Duerden's narration was phenomenal. I have listened to this book multiple times especially when I am feeling a little blue and never fails to cheer me up.
I read romance novels and these was one of the worst....
No but I will not read anything from this author again.
She was ok
This is, by far, my favorite audiobook that I have listened to so far! The story is captivating and the narrator really brought them to life!
A love story to remember. Again, the narration just brought this story to life.
I especially liked the scene when the characters in the book first visited the seaside pool together.
The author's wit really shined in this story. It made me laugh a time or two.
Definitely a must listen!
Funny, sexy, and heartwarming
I loved the hero in this story. I loved his witty personality that was rude, arrogant, and sexy all rolled up in one. The chemistry between the characters is extremely well written and believable.
I was highly impressed with her performance. She pulled of each character so well that when I read the story weeks later, all I could hear is her interpretations.
The most moving part to me was when mother and son reunite after the boy has been in the hospital alone and the mother forbidden to come.
I have read most of Eloisa James' books but this is my first audio by her. Needless to say it is one of my all time favorites and I will definitely be listening to more from this performer.
Really enjoyed this take on beauty and the beast! The narration was good, too. Highly recommend if you enjoy regency romance.
I loved the book. I am generally an Eloisa James fan, but sometimes she seems a bit off, mechanical. This was spot on.
The interactions between Beauty and Beast were always significant.
To be repetitious, any scene between B&B.
The chicken coop scenes were very impactful.
Well done all around. While I listened at every opportunity, I didn't want it to end.
It's very entertaining
Not any one in particular
I did not have one I enjoyed the entire book
I love the interaction between her characters
I will buy more Eloisa James
Absolutely. From the stellar narration to the witty banter to the heartbreaking ending, the book was one of the few this year that stands out for me. Definitely will re-listen
Linnet of course, she was beautiful, charming, witty and sarcastic, she gave as good as she got but is kindhearted as well. I loved the heroine that was able to love the hero despite his foul character at first:)
Hands down Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, she did marvelous job with his voice, I was amazed that a woman narrator can interpret someone so well, she made him come alive. Excellent job.
When Linnet got sick and was all alone
This is one I will listen to again.. It was so amusing and the story itself was a good one with strong lead characters.
The humor & the self awareness of the characters. Piers and Linnet know exactly who they are & what they want.
The different voices. I was reading along with the audiobook at times and realized I missed Gavan's childish voice and Linnet's. They (different voices) add so much to the story. Susan Duerden can make the characters come to life with her narration.
This book definitely made me laugh and yes, I felt sadness and horror when Linnet was ill.
I don't usually read Regency type romances, but thought I'd try this because of a review & the sale price and I am so glad I did. Very entertaining and I have already ordered another of her books.
