I was absolutely surprised. I did not expect to like this audio title as much as I did. The Narrator is awesome, I mean it, the delivery in itself deserves acclaim. The story is so warm, funny and absolutely thought provoking. The charcters jump right off of the page and into life via the narrator. There is always the other side of a story. and this is a must listen. I dare you not to love it.
I have not read the print version. However it is so great to have a title that is fun, but quite intelligent. I loved the hyperbole. Ms. Reid can really wax lyrically. Well done!
I loved jane, however the story allows you to like Quinn aka Mr. McHotPants just as much
I thought her performance absolutely wonderful. It would be great if she would do the next selection "Neanderthal Marries Human". Her reading brings Janie to life.
Quinn. He is so smooth and complicated, but yet so human.
I would love to be able to listen to Neanderthal Marries Human, My research says that both selections were set to be done in "Audio" and available by May or June of 2014. However it appears audible is only offering us the one selection. I guess i will need to try and find the second selection on my own. I normally can and do wait for a follow-up title to present itself. However, I enjoyed this one so much, this week-end I am going to try and find the next audible title on my own. This really is a "Smart" read.
I really enjoyed this series by Armistead Maupin. I would read another novel by him.
If you followed all of the characters over their life times, they are all equally wonderful. However, this title did not quite stand as tall as the rest of the stories in the series.
She was very good.
The rest of the series came to TV, so why not this one. I loved Olympia D. In the role of Anna Madrigal. I could see, Shirley MacLaine or Julie Newmar.
Insightful, warm, well done.
Lou and Minton the dog.
I absolutely love Jilly Bond. I have actually searched out books because they we're read by Jilly Bond.
There were so many. This book had many many moments
Definitely a good read. We'll worth the credit.
Nothing, it was just weak
Narrator started off pretty fair, and then as different characters were introduced, it seems the narrator ran out of steam
Story has been done to death, but often even knowing that...the narrator can draw you in and make it somewhat enjoyable. However, this misses on both levels. I could not go past 30 minutes.
One of the classics
I love Elizabeth Gaskell's writing and style. This Narrator was so poor I could not get past 15 minutes of it. Waste.
insightful, innovative author
She is just plain awful. Her voice quality is really bad. Her voice is so hard and raspy. I don't understand why she is narrating so many of these wonderful works.
I loved this title, like I love all of Georgette Heyer's books. However, somthing is not right here...the book just shuts off. I am sure it does not end this way. Audible please check this recording out....it has a problem
I really like this title. I smiled a lot while listening. I like Georgette Heyer. This is my second title by this writer, and I was not dissappointed. Clifford Norgate brings the characters right to you. Excellent.
Great Story, Awesome narrator equals fabulous audible experience. I really liked this story. The narration is a 10+. She does every voice so well, you can actually see the characters. She does the male voices fabulously, and not wimpy like I have heard on many occassions. Worth the read. I actually went to look for other combinations of this writer and this narrator.
