Excellent narration by Richard Armitage. I agree it is too truncated. But it's rather like a movie version that leaves out some of the detail while offering its own satisfactions. The dialogue between Venetia and Dameral is really a delight when read aloud by such a competent interpreter.
The narrator did an excellent job of managing the many characters and accents, especially the women's voices.
The interactions between the hero and heroine.
See above. I could not have understood some of the "cant" without him.
No. But it was very engaging over several days.
The reading highlighted some of the weaknesses of Heyer--but enjoyable nonetheless.
I heard Caine interviewed on Fresh Air and the book is as much fun as promised. It was a great pleasure to listen to his distinctive voice on a long car ride. From "Alfie" onward Michael Caine has contributed so much to film and popular culture, he deserves to be honored and loved.
