I had read this novel years ago and enjoyed it but I was still surprised by how the quality of the narration could really draw me back into the story. The narrator does an exceptional job with the male and female voices and the related accents. Also, she captures the tone and historical atmosphere of the novel. I was dazzled and look forward to following up on this story with the sequel, Prince of Dreams.
The narrator was absolutely wonderful and Georgette Heyer's Grand Sophy abridged is better than not at all. However, as wonderful as it was, it simply made me long for Sophy unabridged with the wonderful Clare Wille at the helm again. I had listened to the original unabridged version on cassette and though I wanted to like it, the narrator did not impress me. Ms. Wille, on the other hand, was perfection in my opinion and I would buy the unabridged version again if she were the narrator. Hopefully the publisher/producer is paying attention to our comments.
