    "Delightful!"

    What a lovely read. I only recently discovered this author - not my usual genre - and thoroughly enjoyed this book! I could see it playing out before me. Very well read, too.

    "Sweet simple romance"

    Everytime I read the summary of Heyers books I think,"I shall not like this as much as the last." Some how each time I am surprised. I have just finished The Grand Sophy as well as Sylvester and each time I find something new and different to love. Cotillion is just another example of this with its naive heroine and simple but full hearted Freddie.

    "My favorite one yet!"

    This is my fourth GH novel, and decidedly my favorite. Thoroughly charming! Very satisfying. There is a large cast of male characters.

    "A classic!"

    A great Georgette Heyer romance with a variety of characters. She coined the Regency genre and is still the queen of it.

    "Typical Georgette; typical Phyllida Nash"
    Any additional comments?

    The first two words of my title should be enough. If you like Georgette Heyer, you'll like this book. If you don't ... you won't. (If you're not familiar with her works, look on Amazon for reviews.)

    Same thing for the last two words of my title. Phyllida Nash is excellent in her readings of Georgette.

    This reading is practically perfect. I might have changed Dolphinton's voice, but everyone else was exactly as I heard them in my head. (If you like this, also try Civil Contract.)

    "Not Heyer's best"
    Would you try another book from Georgette Heyer and/or Phyllida Nash?

    I would and have tried other books by the author and narrator. Heyer is an enjoyable author and Phyllida Nash's is a wonderful narrator.


    If you’ve listened to books by Georgette Heyer before, how does this one compare?

    Faro's Daughter, The Grand Sophy, Venetia, Frederica, Devil's Cub and The Unknown Ajax are my favorite. The stories tie up so well and the characters are fun and vibrant. Not so in this book.

    "Humerous and charming romantic comedy"

    A delightful heroine, an unlikely hero, and a pleasant tour of Regency London. A light read with coincidences, twists and turns and a happy ending. I am smiling as I write this.

    "The best yet"

    One of the most delightful - a lovely twist. Phyllida Nash is brilliant as a narrator, getting all the voices and accents perfectly.

    "One of Heyer's Best"
    If you could sum up Cotillion in three words, what would they be?

    One of my favorite books. I read it first in paperback then downloaded this audio and was not disappointed! It is a great mix of Regency romance and English dry humor. The characters are all colorful and carry quite well throughout the book. I laughed out loud in many parts. It is a book that I have listened to time and time again. Beginning is a bit slow but once it gets going, it is a great read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dolphington because he is a sweet, simpleton that brings life into every scene he appears.


    Who was the most memorable character of Cotillion and why?

    Freddie who starts off as somewhat eccentric and aloof but eventually becomes the hero.
