Sir Waldo Hawkridge, wealthy, handsome, eligible, illustrious, and known as The Nonesuch for his athletic prowess, believes he is past the age of falling in love.

    "Excellent narration; good but not the best of Heyer's novels"

    This Heyer novel is enjoyable but not one of my favorites. First, Waldo and Ancilla are off-putting names for our lovers, and whoever chose the picture that accompanies this audio, should be demoted. Hideous depiction of Waldo. In the last quarter of the novel, some of the characters talk and go on and on and on. I am talking to you, Mrs. Chartley. I don't know how the narrator stood it.

    Anyway, fairly enjoyable Heyer novel, and this audio of The Nonesuch is one I would listen to again.

    "Immensely Entertaining!"

    Ms. Matheson brought this wonderful madcap story to brilliant life! There were times when I laughed out loud. In fact, I'm still chuckling! Thank you for such an enjoyable performance. Ms. Heyer would be pleased.

    "slow "

    It was a slow start and unsatisfactory finish. I found myself cringing every time the narrative for tiffany came- which I guess was the point. But not my favorite book. There was not enough back story on the characters

    "good story - abrupt ending"

    it's a good Jane Austen type story only with a lot more slang. Took me a while to understand what they meant by the Corinthian set. The narrator does a great job keeping the voices straight and I really like the story, except that it just seems to end randomly. I do recommend it, especially if you love Jane Austen or Elizabeth Gaskell.

    "Very good narration!"

    In audio books, the narration can make or break the book. Eve Matheson does a great job with the voices in this book! I was especially delighted with Tiffany's voice! The high tone of her voice was perfect for this completely self-concerned character. And her aunt's Yorkshire accent was wonderful! Also, Cousin Laurey's voice hit the mark! I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would.
    I thought Georgette Heyer's characterization of Miss Trent intelligence, frankness, & good sense was endearing, and I also loved the kindness & support of her employer. I throughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it!

    "great narration!!"

    Eve had unique voices for every character. I loved it. Also, the story made you feel like you were in a country English community.

    "Another delightful Georgette Heyer Farce"

    The lovely voice of the narrator and her ability to present the colorful accents of the Yorkshire gentry bring this witty Heyer romance to life. I had read this story several times, but enjoyed the relaxation of having this favorite read to me. Loved it!

    "great reading, slightly contrived tension"

    this was a good and refreshingly contrived conflict free story until 2 hours to then end when alas, contrived misunderstandings appeared. solid, but not Heyer's best.
