I was extremely disappointed in the narration of this book. The narrator was so bad I couldn't even make it through the first 4 chapters. His tone was abrasive, especially for the female characters. It was truly a disappointment.
hopeless romantic and avowed anglophile
I have always delighted in reading Georgette Heyer's books, often again and again and have recently been enjoying them on audio so that I can busy my hands with knitting projects while being entertained, but Mr. Garrett's voice, especially when translating the female characters is extremely harsh to listen to. He is more often so shrill and annoying that it is hard to concentrate on the story.
I am a great reader and listener.I read this story and all the others over 50 years ago. The story teller is just brilliant.He captures the content and characters just right.
The performance is so fantastic!
The story has such amusing characters.
I have not yet listened to any others, but I certainly will.
It made me laugh a lot.
I have a preference for male narrators who read romance. Holter Graham and Fred Berman are among the very best.
This narrator gave me a splitting headache after about 3 hours listening to his female vocal impression.
I did not rate the story because I did not finish it but the narration is horrible. Not only will I not finish this book, I will in fact return it.
I've listened to this book before, and read the book before that. Very entertaining each time. The narrator did a good job.
Hard to find a likable character in this one, I felt, and it ended with a whimper, not a bang, but overall, I enjoyed it.
Yes, to both.
I would have enjoyed a longer final scene.
Nothing. I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed his various voices.
