I am a clay sculptor and an art instructor at a community college. I mostly listen to audiobooks while I work in my home studio.
I found the first half of this book a bit tedious and quite slow. I'm not entirely sure why, so maybe it was just me.
One of the characters was annoying which was funny but also, well, annoying.
I may have also reached my Heyer limit. She basically tells the same story over and over again. Its like reading a familiar romantic comedy. Which is fine sometimes and the writing is good, but maybe I was just in the mood for something with more to it.
This was nice light fluff, a little slow to start but enjoyable by the end. If that's what you're in the mood for, listen away.
While this story does not seem to be overly original (It is in the realm of Emma and Wives and daughters.), it is well written. Eve Matheson did a wonderful job narrating. The combination of the writing style and narrator make it a very enjoyable book. I was in stitches quite a few times while listening.
It was light hearted.
The misunderstanding which was resolved at the end of the story.
There wasn't a particular moment that moved me, but some that made me chuckle.
Yes. Delightful romance, good narration. Totally enjoyable.
The Nonesuch himself was as usual wonderfully elegant, but I always enjoy the minor character in all of her books, such as a sister's husband, or a slightly backward friend whose dialogue is so funny, I cannot help laughing in total enjoyment at the absurdities!
All of them.
I never tire of reading or listening to Georgette Heyer's works.
The Nonesuch was written in the style of Jane Austin, but without the subtleties and well developed plots and sub-plots. Would not try another by Heyer, if it's a period piece.
