fun, sassy, adventure
I loved the way the main character views her school and the many adventures that abound therein.
Moira Quirk's performance in Etiquette and Espionage is much better than the other book I have listened to, narrated by Moira Quirk. In this book she is allowed to have more fun with the characters, as they are more farcical and fanciful than the other book. She is really has fun with the different people, and I love her characterizations.
I chuckled at several moments. I didn't laugh out loud, but I really enjoyed all of the mischief the students got up to.
Set in the world first introduced in Soulless, is a wonderful story of a teenage girl who doesn't quite fit into the role expected of her. The writing is as wonderful as the Alexia Taraboti books and so is the narration.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoyed the Soulless series.
Great narration - I thoroughly Carriger's last series of steam-punk inspired fantasy novels and thought Emily Gray's narration couldn't be equaled, but Moira Quirk does a terrific job.
Just good fun all around.
Good voice acting is hard to find, she's very polished and quite versatile.
No, I prefer to dole out my pleasures for walks and while working around the house.
Addicted to books, especially audiobooks. Read lots and prosper!
Now this is what Young Adult should be - fun and fast and witty! There is no triple love play, agonizing angst and long drawn out periods of self pity. Jump on board Carriger's air ship and have a great adventure!
Having enjoyed the Parasol Protectorate I was eager to check out this new series by Gail Carriger. What a wonderful surprise to find an equally entertaining series! I look eagerly forward to the next book in this series and hope Audible will pick it up as well. Moira Quirk did a perfect rendition of Sophronia's tale. I loved Bumbersnoot and all of Sophronia's friends!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Etiquette & Espionage. It was easy to listen to and held my attention for the entirety of it. I liked the humor in the story, giving it a light-hearted feel. If I'd had the time, I would have finished this book in a day! I did not want to stop listening! Cannot wait for the next book!
Great detective adventure with super writing and love that voice.
Of course the main girl character was the best, love how inventive she was
Her accent is great and she does a good job. She could back down on the professor a bit but she was great.
Was just fun.
Love this author. Can't wait for more
Would definitely recommend this audiobook. The reader was awesome and the story was great. Gail Carriger created a wonderful adventure and always creates the best characters for her stories. I loved the finishing school and can't wait for the next adventure to unfold.

I found myself totally enjoying this new series. I will most definitely buy the next one. Interesting characters, plot and well written. It's a winner.
As a huge fan of Carriger's Parasol Protectorate novels, I got this book the day it was released. It is a prequel to those stories, with the origins of some characters from those books as part of it.
But really it isn't about the same thing the other books were, even if they share some characters. It s a new story about Sophronia, the Cinderella of a steampunk age. She is the troublesome child of proper Victorian parents who simply don't know what to do with her blueblood tendencies. Until the day a family friend suggest they send her off to a special finishing school.
The book is fun with Carriger's quirky and lovable outsider characterization. We get another look at her steampunk world and it is even more fun this time.
It does seem this book was a little rush, especially towards the end. The story is going along showing you various things and suddenly does some climatic stuff and boom is over. It leaves you wanting to know more and feeling you've missed something. It's obviously a first book in a series as a result.
Even though it is a "young adult" novel, it's a fun read for fans of any age.
