    "A charming romance by the Queen of Prose"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Powder and Patch to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed this audio version of Powder and Patch as the text contained many French expressions. I have no knowledge of the language, but enjoyed hearing them spoken as it added to the enjoyment of the book, adding a bit more charm.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Powder and Patch?

    I loved the interchange between Phillip and Cleone's Aunt Sarah when Aunt Sarah tells Phillip that a woman can have a hundred thoughts at one time and every one of them contradictory.


    Have you listened to any of Flo Gibson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Flo Gibson's performances before. She spoke flawlessly and the French passages were flowing without a bit of hesitation. This is not a book that just anyone could read. There was a slight whistle with the s sound.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    A reader or a listener cannot go wrong when the book is by Georgette Heyer.

    "A gallop through the novel"

    I found the narration of this book too fast. I could hardly keep up. The undefined switches between characters also makes it difficult to follow conversations. I could not work out if the sound quality is poor or if the tone of the reader is just so soft that it is difficult to pick out her words. The American accent of Flo Gibson does not help, think Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins. You need a British narrator for Georgette Heyer, or the nuances are lost. What a disappointment.
