Have you ever wanted an Audible book and it finally showed up? You are so excited! BUT, then you hear to the WORST voice you have ever listened to!!!
I will listen to this again,(because I LOVE the book) but Audible PLEASE don't have Daniel Hill narrate anymore Georgette Heyer books.
His normal voice is pleasant...his characters are horrible.
I love Audible...I don't have the time anymore to sit down and read. I listen as I am working on a project. Thank you so much for the wonderful books you have.
This story is about Auri. I don't know about you, but whatever Patrick Rothfuss writes, I inhale, listen to, breath again and listen to again. He has a way of writing that is lovely. What did I like best? I liked learning more about Auri. Period. I loved her making soap.
Auri was the only character. Who could want anything more? Unless it is the last book of the trilogy.
I am a person who loved to make anything from scratch. I card my wool, spin and either weave it or knit it....so I loved hearing about the soap making. Just an FYI, it is not as easy as Auri does it
The whole book was moving. It made me cry, laugh, shake my head...total enjoyable. But if you don't read the first two books....it will not make much sense.
Mr. Rothfuss probably never reads these reviews...but if he does, I want to say how many hours I have listened to and enjoyed his story of Kvothe. I am going to get the book Rogues, where he writes about Bast. Thank you for being such a talented writer...
I have another rendition of Cousin Kate and it is narrated 100% better. This narrator makes Kate sound insipid. Kate is not insipid. I listen to the other rendition as I go to sleep and Kate is a lady...in this one she is a wimp. I should have listened to the whole sample. I would not recommend this rendition. I am sure the public library has this book, to be rented out. Phyllida Nash is the best in my opinion.
Georgette Heyer's women are such strong, non namby pamby women. I have collected her books over the years and love them all. The Grand Sophy is a talented woman, no nonsense. Venetia, Faro's Daughter...OK all her books.
Sarah is too rough sounding...no class, and Sarah as a Ladies maid would not have talked that way. I am only 1 hour into the book, maybe I will get use to the voice. Fingers on the chalk on the chalk board this far.
Look before you leap.
I hope they are not made into movies. My imagination is much better.
I would recommend this book, it doesn't have unnecessary sex scenes. I don't have to delete in my mind swear words. My grandchildren would love it, and I wouldn't be embarrassed to have recommended it.
I love the Mistborn series. OK, I love how Brandon Sanderson writes.
He really sounds like the character that he is speaking for.
If I was taking a trip YES!, But, I can't just sit and listen when I am at home...the phone rings, I have appointments. I really would like to just listen though.
Really worth buying.
They have an English accent...New York is NOT England English speach.
I just can't get past the English accent.
Wonderful story..good plot, interesting. HORRIBLE narrator. He needs to be replaced with Kermit, or Miss Piggy.
Have always loved reading Mary Norton books. Now I can listen and still do my spinning!
What happened to the wonderful reader Mary Peifer? Sounds horrible! Sounds like a guy trying to sound like a woman. I bought all of Grafton's alphabet books and spent the summer listening to her books. If I had paid attention to the change of the narrator, I could have save $20 plus a book, so that adds up to $$$.
I would love the book, if I didn't have to listen to this woman!!!!
I think that Georgette Heyer's books are great. I am never embarrassed by bad language, the haphazard usage of the 4 letter words. If they can't find a substitute don't write. These books are a joy to listen to.
I have loved Georgette Heyer books since..forever. Each and everyone is a joy. I love that she writes a good story, the characters are believable, the clothes are something I would love to see. How many times can a person say wonderful in a review?
The narrator is just right and makes the book come to life.
