Simon Prebble himself, who reminds me vocally of the actor Jonathan Pryce- one of my favorites partly due to his beautiful voice. I'm currently listening to this book for the third time!!
This is my favorite among MJP's "Lost Lords" series. I'm hoping that some of her "Fallen Angel" series are added to Audible's catalog, which are among my favorites. This book is equal to them.
The scene in the inn while on their way to London. That is certainly an interesting way of consumating a marriage!
What's a tag line?
I'm thoroughly enjoying this book. Prebble does it very well. I'm on my third go round listening to it and I'm getting rather strange looks from my co workers who don't realize I'm not listening to music on my mp3 player. They can't figure out why I'm grinning depending on what scene I'm listening to.
This is my 2nd favorite Cadfael novel. The book introduces Cadfael's son, one of my favorite characters in the entire series. BTW First favorite is Brother Cadfael's Penance in which also includes Cadfael's son.
Olivier, Cadfael's son who manages to get into what amounted to enemy territory and get back out without getting caught and still do what he was sent there for.
Tull's voice fits the book and it's characters but he has a tendency to get a bit carried away. I have listened to Derek Jacobi's versions of the Cadfael books. He played Cadfael in the British TV series based on the books. He does a better job IMHO by keeping the needed interest without going off the deep end the way Tull has a habit of doing, more so in this book than he did in the other Cadfael book I have of his, "One Corpse Too Many"
I have done so twice now and have also listened to it in parts during my working hours.
I like Tull's performance but I would like to see the unabridged versions by Derek Jacobi available as well. If they were available, I'd buy the lot!
very entertaining historical!
the Earl's first description of the lady who later becomes his Countess.
The Dowager Countess, his caricature of her is a riot!
Miss Drusilla Morville who manages to get the Earl to so completely change his mind about her.
I'm a long time fan of Heyer's books but I had forgotten just how much fun they could be before buying this version. The Dowager Countess cracks me up and the Earl's quiet voice, even when being verbally attacked by the Dowager Countess, and both verbally and physically by his half brother [very much a spoiled brat] makes me wonder just what kind of "fun" he had hanging on to his temper with that pair on his case.
Definitely not in this version.
Jack Holloway who was willing to stand up for his little friends.
STRANGE! Why do so many of his characters speak with a Middle Eastern/Indian accent? Including one gentleman with the last name of VAN Riebek!
SLIGHTLY ODD since he makes Jack H.sound like an old man. Agreed that the character is supposedly in his 70's but he doesn't strike me as the type to be ready for a rocking chair!
I've always enjoyed HBP's books with their humorous twists.
I'd like to see more of HBPiper's books in audio form but find another reader!!
