I initially found the narration a little over exaggerated and difficult listening, however, once the setting moved out of the castle I began to thoroughly enjoy the performance. So glad I stuck with it past the first few chapters. The narrator captures Lady Georgiana and Darcy perfectly. While a few of the elements were predictable, the individual characters and the puzzle of the 12 "clues" made a very fun story. Great diversion during long, cold, dark, early morning commutes.
Yes. I repeat good Christmas book every year or so.
Good suspense. The characters are not transparent, they have depth. I usually figure out the "catch", not this time.
Great holiday book especially for anglophiles!
Georgie and Darcy's happy ending.
Wonderful narration giving a great performance of numerous characters.
Love the trip back in time to an area we have never experienced.
Interesting plot which was Introduced slowly. The characters were far more intriguing.
No, not really. Just love the characters and the delivery of there dialects.
We take alot for granite when it comes to family and the people around us.
A great way to while away a few hours in a kinder gentler (maybe) era. This is a series that I enjoy for light listening. It is effortless and fun. The narration is excellent.
I enjoy the Royal Spyness series--just the right mix of humor, history, and mystery--a light and enjoyable listen. I believe there were a few story inconsistencies with the previous book, mostly having to do with Georgie's wardrobe, but they did not affect the overall story. Darcy is in this story more than the other books, which is an added bonus.
Love the author and the main characters. The narrator adds that special touch to the story with her depiction of the characters. Great story line and series, can't wait for the next installment.
Have re-discovered "quality time." Evenings listening to good books have replaced mindless tv watching. What a difference!
Probably. I have not read the print version.
Well, since this is a lot of jolly good fun, hard to say edge of my seat. But it was still a good mystery. I did not guess the "who-dunnit" part.
She's always perfect.
Yes. I laugh a lot.
This whole series is just delightful. Though actual mysteries, there is an element of comedy, a bit of good- natured poking of fun at British aristocracy/royalty, and even a smidgen of romance. I so look forward to each new book. Hold onto it till I'm ready for something completely special. Close to a perfect series. High on my list of favorites I've listened to. And I'm not sure I'd like the written book as much as the narrated one, and only THIS narrator. Nobody else could do it as well.
The narrator is great! Story is interesting. Love all the characters. Will relisten the whole series in couple of years.
No. It is a comfortable listen. Cozy. Even with all the dead bodies. But i did finish it in 3 days. Didnt want to put it down.
I don't think so...the narrator's voice wasn't as soothing as I prefer, and the story was a bit dry.
It was worth the wait!
Yes, she was very good at all the accents and age differences.
I'd rent the DVD.
