    In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. One woman hears the tidings with utter dread. Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, knows that the bells she hears will summon her husband once more to power, intrigue, and a passionate love affair. Philippa Gregory paints a picture of a country on the brink of greatness, a young woman grasping at her power, a young man whose ambition is greater than his means, and the wife who cannot forgive them.

    Teddy says: "Interesting Take on Elizabeth"
    "I can't stand weak characters."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Only to alleviate boredom.


    Has The Virgin's Lover turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No it didn't.


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She kept me engaged towards the 3/4 mark when I realized Elizabeth and Lady Dudley would end the story weak and annoying.


    Was The Virgin's Lover worth the listening time?

    I'm on the fence on this one.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"

    What made the experience of listening to The Help the most enjoyable?

    The readers inflection and tone made me feel the emotions intended and after watching the movie I was delighted in how these characters came to life in my mind as I listened.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Every character was so thoughtfully realized and written I loved them all. Even the antagonist. She was a creature born for me to despise, however she received the same depth and liveliness as all the rest. Very well done.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The moment Ugena realized Luanne was not a Stepford Wife, but an actual person with emotions so deep and controlled it was thrilling and tragic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was... Interruptions turned me into a bit of a grouch.

    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    Ana says: "Very Disappointed!"

    What would have made Revenge Wears Prada better?

    Okay so is it my imagination or did Andrea turn into a ridiculous whining drama queen. For goodness sakes I am on chapter 8 and I have stopped my audio book I am debating to finish it or delete it. Andrea's character dribbles on so much my energy has been leached out of me and I just can't listen anymore.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I am debating if I have the strength to continue listening to Andrea dribble on or delete the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maybe the reader should have listened to the first book and taken some notes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Silent low irritation.


    Any additional comments?

    I really was looking forward to this book but I just can't get into such a tragic weak character. Really... terror dreams about her boss years later? Did she get stuck in a concentration camp at Runway or something?
