    Story
    (196)

    Finding so young and pretty a girl as Amanda wandering unattended, Sir Gareth Ludlow knows it is his duty as a man of honour to restore her to her family.

    But it is to prove no easy task for the Corinthian. His captive in sprig muslin has more than her rapturous good looks and bandboxes to aid her - she is also possessed of a runaway imagination...

    A says: "Teen years favorite comes to Audible --at last!"
    "Very enjoyable listen!"
    Overall

    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!

  • Ivanhoe

    Story
    (192)

    Wilfred, knight of Ivanhoe, the son of Cedric the Saxon, is in love with his father's ward, Rowena. Cedric, however, wishes her to marry Athelstane, a descendant of the royal Saxon line, whom Cedric hopes will restore the Saxon succession. With a colorful cast of chivalric knights and fair ladies, this action-filled novel comes complete with feats of derring-do, the pageantry of a tournament, and a great flame-engulfed castle - all of which makes it the most enthralling of Scott's creations.

    Bill Dewey/Reclaiming Quarterly says: "Great Adventure, Good Rendition"
    "Sometimes classics are not how you remembered."

    What did you love best about Ivanhoe?

    I always remembered the romance of the complete story.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Page – was your favorite?

    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.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
