I read this book years ago and it stuck with me over the years, so much that I wrote a poem called my night in shining armor. I just listened to it and fell in love with it all over again. Love love love this book!!!!
I would've liked the book more if she hadn't of been so much of a cry baby. She cried every other page, it took forever to finish this book. Her character voice didn't help either actually made it worse
I just started listening to books by Audible a year ago. My favorites, historical fiction, romance, christian fiction.
I rank this audiobook at the top. Steve West does a fabulous job!
The storyline is wonderful. Jude Deveraux writes as I was listening, finding myself thinking the same thing!!! What I liked best about this story is, how the characters realized their short comings and failures, then turned them around. Of course the love between the characters will light a fire in your loins!!
I like all the scenes!!
This book is one I wish I could listen to all in one sitting!! I almost did!
As a christian, I especially loved the references to God. Very touching. I would like to think God is still working in ways that bring the right people together. Being widowed, looking for my end of life partner, this book made me realize I could have appreciated my husband a little bit more. I'm hoping I will have a "second" chance!
I rate 5 (Loved it!) 4 (Really liked it!) 3 (Liked it!) 2 (Didn't really like it!) 1 (Hated it!) I never rate a book before I finish it!
The story was good and the narrator was too! I used to read Jude years ago, but this was my first audible book by her and the narrator. I will definitely look for more.
I believe books transport you to worlds only imaginable in your wildest dreams! I also enjoy self-help books. I love books!!!!
I love, love, love this book. The story is as vivid and amazing as when I first read it 20+ years ago. It actually made me cry at the love that Douglass and Nicholas shared. I loved Steve West's narration; I just wished that Douglass' voice would have been done by a female. Still was a great narration and the story was brought to life beautifully!
I read this book about once every couple of years. This is the first time I listened to it. The narrator was a little hard to understand for this Texas girl but I eventually could understand what he was saying. This is a must own!!
I really loved this book on hard cover and hoped to find it on audio. Loved it even more. Steve West did a good job but I wished he gave our heroine a stronger voice. Otherwise, this is definitely a book I will read / listen to again.
I managed to make it to the end, finally. It was well--imagined, but the heroine was wimpy, whiny, needy, irrational, and not too bright. Almost toward the end, I realized that perhaps she might not sound so whiny if it were not a male narrator. Perhaps the tone of her oft-repeated, "please..." would not sound so, well, like someone mimicking a whiny female request. The description of the thoughts of the people catapulted into different times was brilliant, and I finally finished reading it just because I wanted to find out how the author finished writing it! Oh, yes - and our poor heroine - finally and at long last - appeared to grow into a more reasonable human being.
I'm clearly conflicted about this book, which seemed overly long. I've enjoyed other Deveraux books, but this one was more ambitious and required historical research - which was nicely folded into the narrative.
He did a good job differentiating characters, but again, a female voice might possibly have made the heroine less irritating.
It raised insoluble questions, such as: Should I push to finish books just because I bought them? Do I really enjoy romances? (I much prefer Georgette Heyer.) Why can't I find a book I want to read? Is it reasonable to return a book that I would rate above two stars (probably not).
