This is one of my favorite audio books I've listened to so far definitely in my top 10.
Susan Duerden is a wonderfully gifted reader, I think she could make and instruction manual sound brilliant! So when you pair her with a cleaver and witty author you have a winner!
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.
Difficult romance story
A long drawn out conversation between the two romantic leads on the planned direction of their relationship. I didn't particularly like the conversation and the way it was going so I was mentally thinking about what I would do in similar circumstances. In short, my actions would have differed greatly...which admittedly means I might have missed out on a great romance.
No, I've not listed to her before but she did a great job with this book.
When "the Beast" had to save "the Beauty". It was a turning point in his life and it was very touching.
I call this a difficult romance story because "the Beast" was a hard man to like, in the beginning. After awhile, as "the Beauty" peeled away the layers of his personality and you got a glimpse of the man he could be, he was more likeable. But that took a good bit of peeling. The book does have very romantic and sexy scenes that more than make up for the darker part so all in all, I would recommend it. In fact, I have never listened to an Eloisa James book that I don't like. She has a way of getting you so wrapped up into the lives and the romance of the characters that you feel a let down when the book is over; and just for that reason, the book is over. So, I'm now looking for another... :)
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
It was such a great read.... funny, witty, sexy, history, everything you want in a romance novel.
No, but she's a great narrator!
