Hard to choose. I have read the book many times. I found this audio version wonderfulI and I will be listening to it again in the near future.
Anne reading Captain Wentworth's letter and her reaction.
She is one of the best. She reads with passion and the voices for each character are just great.
No need for one for this book.
Quality like the one in this audiobook has made me addicted already.
The narrator moves the story along very well. I read the book a while back and the audio experience is much better.
I liked mostly Sir Richard. He was just as I pictured him when I read the book.
No, this is my first experience. She did a great job with most of the characters; however, I was disappointed with Cedric's voice. I liked him in the book, but he sounded like a bore in the audio.
My favorite part would be a "spoiler" so I will refrain from answering this question.
Lots of fun. I laughed outloud a few times and smiled quite often. I'm a Heyer fun and this one ranks in my top five. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys clean adventure and romance.
Engaging, witty and fun.
The Nonsuch also by Heyer. Poor girl, rich boy. Different plot but the same kind of engaging characters.
Listening to this book is a marvelous experience - one you cannot get by just reading it. Ms Nash is one of the best narrators for Heyer's books. She does men voices flawlessly and her mature women voices are also great; however, she made Arabella sound older than her 19 years, consequently, the image of the innocent debutant was hard to take for me. Regardless, I enjoyed it very much and will listen to it again soon. In fact, I just finished it and want to listen to it again - I will use restrain though and wait a little.
You bet! Unfortunately, it took me two days to finish it.
This is a favorite book of mine. I'm so glad that several Heyer books are coming out on audiobook. Hopefully, Pistols for Two and Simon the Coldheart will be coming very soon.
I read this book twice and loved it; however, this audio book is fantastic. The narrator brings most of the characters to life, making it a much better experience-- I would have enjoyed it even better if Cadross would have sounded more masculine. The narrator did a better job with the other male characters. Nell is a "pea goose" but a very lovable one. I know I will listen to the audio book again and I expect I'll laugh quite often.
This is a well written book with an interesting plot and engaging characters. In my opinion a bit more editing would have made it a five star story - I found it a bit repetitious. The narrator was good but could have been better.
I will most probably listen to it again in a few months, but I will be fast forwarding through some parts.
There is some steamy sex. I put this in my review as information for listeners who like or don't like this kind of book.
I read this book a while ago and loved it. The experience was even better while listening to the audiobook. Ms. Nash does so well with the narration and the very distinct voices for each character. Heyer's writing is so wonderful that the 14 hours I spent listening to this book were worth it. All the characters are very well defined. I loved them all; however, Gilly was my favorite. I will be listening to it again in the near future.
I enjoyed this book so much that it's now one of my favorite Heyer novels. Eve Matheson's narration is superb. I had a hard time leaving it when I was half way through and having to wait to finish it - it is a bit longer than other Heyer books. I do recommend this audiobook.
Yes. I'll let sometime go by before listening to it again. It is well written and the performance is good.
Just as the previous books in the series, this plot kept my interest to the end.
When the bad guys are found out. I won't specify by giving away details.
I enjoy the interaction between Sebastian and Hero.
I believe the author is making the main characters more mature and likable as the series continues. I look forward to the next one. I hope it will soon have the WS4VR feature.
It would have been at the top, but I did not like how the reader did most of the women voices. The men's voices were not great either. Mr. Collins grated in my ears to the extent that I almost gave up and tried to buy another version.
Any other Jane Austen book. To me, she is the best.
I liked the narration. I very much disliked the voices for Mrs. Bennett, Lydia, and Elizabeth.
No tag. It would not be needed.
This version is very inexpensive. I still recommend it, just keep in mind that, at times, the voices are hard on the ears.
In the middle of the pack.
It is a clean and inspiring story where family relationships are very important.
Mac was the best. I must say that I did not like most of the male characters - the worst one being uncle Alec who sounded like a woman. Rose's voice made her sound childish which made me dislike her at times.
The book is quite moving.
This is an old fashioned book that may sound preachy to younger audiences. I read this book when I was 7 or 8 years old and loved it. This time I felt it was a bit wordy. I still recommend it highly.
