This is one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to. The characters are believable and appealing, and the plot is highly entertaining. I haven't read many books by Georgette Heyer (only one other, years ago), but if this is indicative of her usual writing style, I'm impressed and anxious to try more. The dialogue and plot are so amusing, I laughed out loud more than once. I'm a little picky about books, but listened to this one completely cringe-free. As for the romance.....this is my idea of perfection. Subtle and irresistible! There was nothing contrived or predictable at all!
The performance by Daniel Philpott was astounding. I'll be searching out his other performances without delay. I am still a little awed by his talent. In fact, I can't be entirely sure that wasn't one of the reasons I'm so enthused about the book in general!
I don't usually take time to write reviews (I'm not proud of that), but I didn't want anyone to miss the opportunity to try this one out. It was just a thoroughly delightful experience from start to finish!
