Yes, and in fact I have already listened to it twice, it is very enjoyable. I find David Mitchell to be a fascinating and humorous person, and I have greatly enjoyed listening to him tell the story of his life.
I think he has related the story of his life very well and made it very funny.
it's all good
where he talks about how he met Victoria and they got together it was very lovely.
This book is very funny and enjoyable and I would highly recommend to anyone.
Funny and Compelling, I have read all of Stephen Fry's Novels and this prior memoirs and this is a great addition.
Stephen of Course!
Well, of them this is a memoir
Read/ Listen to his novels first if you are going to as this book does contain spoilers
No, I usually do feel the audio versions are better but not this time and there have been a lot of great Narrators so far for the Mary Jo Putney novels, but William Kirby is not very exciting. He mainly talks in a monotone and does not have a good female voice which is essential. I really enjoy men reading romance novels but not if they are bad.
I think Mary Jo Putney's whole Fallen Angel series is fab! and have really enjoyed all the stories. My favourites are Petals on the Storm (which I hope will be next!), One Perfect Rose and Angel Rogue.
Not, if I could help it.
It would have been, this book is a combination of Spy novel, Romance novel and Indiana Jones (I swear at the last chapter Mary Jo knew the historical details and saw how she could fit a overtop action sequence in and it worked wonderfully, except for the which was as dry as dust).
it is a fab fab story but it won't make your heart sing like so many of the Mary Jo Putney audiobooks do, perhaps try another Mary Jo Putney Audiobook, they might re-do it with a better Narrator.
The narrator had quite a high nasal voice, which was very irritating. Also the story was not engaging, I think if there had been a better narrator it would be ok, but all I got was headache!
I couldn't make it past the first 4 hrs
Anyone! (actually thats a lie) I really enjoyed Anne Flosnik versions of the Amanda Quick books.
NO, I would rather get a root canal.
I would because it was a lovely hilarious book, I feel Barbara Metzger has the best Georgette Heyer feel and love all her books! While I love her longer books, I feel there is a place for the slightly shorter regency!
I like how she is scheming to get all her sisters married to the people they love and while she is doing it the grandest gentleman is falling in love with her.
while I love Stevie! I think she needs a bit of early Phyllida Nash A la The Corinthian by Georgette Heyer, if she could listen to that audiobook before recording the next Barbara Metzger that would fab!
I would love to see all the Barbara Metzger books in audiobook form especially
1. An Affair of Interest
2. Saved by Scandal
3.The Primrose Path
4.A Suspicious Affair
Perhaps in the top 100? (out of around 2000?)
Marquis of Dain of course!!
She could have been a bit more lively I think they needed a more lively narrator perhaps Rosalyn Landor? I think Jess needed to be bit more tart, I felt she was portrayed with very little vivacity
There are tons! I love this book
I really hope they bring out 'The Last Hellion' next as that is my all time favourite book by Loretta Chase!! *Fingers crossed* but this time I think they will definitely need a different narrator!
This guy is very deluded, he constantly lies to women telling them he is interested in the same things they are then complains when they figure out that 1. he's been lying and 2. he is not into dancing/craziness/music.
One example is that he tells this girl, he is hugely into music and then when she invites him to a music festival (as friends and in her mind have music in common) he is very angry thinking that its a date and that she has trapped him at this horrible music festival (she thinks he loves music! he told her so! What a Jerk!)
Yes, he has a lovely voice and good comedic timing
Not really it's just a disingenuous jerk complaining about dating ladies who are usually honest about their situation and then complaining because he trapped himself in said situation.
I really hope the author reads this and reflects on his actions and can see that he is doing himself no favours
I think I loved Oscar the most, being an eccentric myself I was drawn to Oscar. The story is very funny but very touching.
Dawn has amazing comic timing which makes this book laugh out loud funny, she is a true genius!
I really recommend this book, it was amazing and I really enjoyed it!
I am a dressmaker who listens to audiobooks while working and I really enjoyed this audiobook, Simon Vance is a top rate performer and the story is very funny, with that perfect mix of humor and seriousness.
The story, how it evolves and the humor that is conveyed with it.
Simon Vance is a genius! (his perfomance of 'The Prestige' is amazing!) and he manages to blend the humor so well in to the story. Also in the serious moments he manages to retain a dignity, whereas so many narrators descend into a whinny or overly serious tone of voice he manages the perfect balance.
well.... they were all really good, I liked Verity and her evolution from a small town girl to realising she didn't need a man to complete her, and I liked Abel and am very much looking for to his book (which I am guessing must be book 3 in the series)
I think this was a very smart well thought out book with an excellent performance and also recommend Eventide which was the first book in the series and was also excellent!!
Anna Fields is an amazing narrator, I have listened to other SEP books and what brings a typical SEP from 7/10 to a 9.5 to 10/10 is Anna Fields reading. Her voice manages bring bring out all the humour in a situation which other readers can't convey.
