Light-hearted period romance.
Sophy as ever, is by far my favourite character. I've always enjoyed Heyer's charming, reckless and strong minded heroine. Clare Wille's rendition of her lines won me to Sophy's way of seeing thing just as Sophy won her way against other characters in the book, so I felt it was an excellent character portrayl.
The audio dramatically recreates the feel of sailing a ship in that era.
I felt that the ending was drawn out a trifle too long - too much to and fro between the hero and villain. It could certainly have been a couple of episodes shorter. It was also very male dominated - there was one female character, who went the very predictable way of most pulp female characters.
Absolutely - this is one of my favourite stories.
Leigh-Hunt's clear diction, differentiation between character voices and slight accent added greatly to my enjoyment of this audiobook
Yes, and I very nearly did!
I would listen to it again - the soundscape and detail were very good.
This is a pulp adventure in the best styling of the golden age of Science Fiction.
I highly enjoyed the dramatic retelling in the old radio play style.
The chilling moments as the investigators realised the truth about Lord Wentworth's infatuation with his new acquisition.
Yes, it was excellent. The character acting and writing easily rendered each character distinguishable from the rest.
I did listen to this in one sitting.
The performances were largely good, very professional - but the lead male playing the young chemist sidekick of Jarrem Lee was a let down. A highly mobile accent and awkward delivery detracted from the overall high quality of the performance. I will still be looking out for more of these shows, but I sincerely hope that experience improves his performance.
I finished this book and wanted to hear it from the start again. Bujold's style of writing in this book seems especially suited to the audio market. The insights dy Cazaril shares draw you into his world, his perspective and his care for the people around him. The first person, internal dialogue and the well drawn characters, coupled with the intense development of plot events made it an incredible listening experience.
One moment? Are you kidding? There were far too many.
No. There were moments when I felt the need to pause the audio, to take in something that had just happened. The first person perspective and my growing attachment to the characters made the events very personal.
I would very highly recommend this book.
