This was never one of my favorite Georgette Heyer books but after listening to Sian Phillips excellent characterization it finally made sense and I find myself listening again and laughing out loud. I truly have enjoyed the reading and now the story!
I always remembered the romance of the complete story.
Rebecca has always been my favorite female character in this story. I think Mr. Page gave her an interesting voice and one that you could easily tell from the other voices. Wamba is actually my most favorite in the story and his voice and characterization was done very well.
No. Just because of the length of the novel and also the story jumps back and forth between scenes and people. Actually took some time to listen to the complete reading.
I had either not noticed or forgotten many of the details of the book, how the Jews were treated and how boorish so many of the main characters were. Realize it was probably an accurate account of the times the writer lived in but am glad I didn't live then.
