Loved, loved, LOVED how the reader brought the story, the setting and the characters to life. What could have been a boring history lesson, turned into a riveting story with characters that were all distinct and real. Found myself wonderfully lost in the world of the Highlands and the excitement of Margaret and Alexander's relationship. This was my first audio book, and won't be my last--thanks to the author and to the narrator.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It's an intriguing story with plenty of Feather's usual romantic sensitivity and accuracy in historical detail that is brought to life by this reader. Narrators always leave an impression on me, sometimes good and sometimes bad. They can make or break a book. This narrator IMHO brings just the right tone and feel to "Almost A Lady" and its fascinating characters, and doesn't disappoint with her adroit ability to create unique and very distinct characters. I've enjoyed several of Feather's books and Ashford's narrations, and this one is very nicely done--well worth a listen, a good audiobook.
This is a novel that does not take itself too seriously. How refreshing! Thought the storyline and the characters were great fun and the inherent eccentricity and tongue-in-cheek qualities of the plot and its people were perfectly captured and very well represented by the reader. To me, it's the mark of a good narrator to be able to create so many different voices in the same novel and make each one real, unique and believable with the character's foibles and faults clear to the listener. This audiobook does that! Hats off to the author for a fun story and for choosing this narrator.
Looking forward to hearing Sally Mackenzie's other books in this series.
Yes. I've bought several audiobooks just because she was the narrator. She does a great job of making very different characters in a range of books both believable and unique.
Laughed. A lot.
Well worth listening to.
