    "A Delightful Listen"

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Nonesuch?

    The misunderstanding which was resolved at the end of the story.


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

    Fine.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There wasn't a particular moment that moved me, but some that made me chuckle.

    Story
    "None such like Heyer!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Delightful romance, good narration. Totally enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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!


    What about Eve Matheson’s performance did you like?

    Just right.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Nonesuch and why?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I never tire of reading or listening to Georgette Heyer's works.

    Would you try another book from Georgette Heyer and/or Eve Matheson?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Georgette Heyer? Why or why not?

    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.
