    "Listened over and over"
    Where does A Knight in Shining Armor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rank this audiobook at the top. Steve West does a fabulous job!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storyline is wonderful. Jude Deveraux writes as I was listening, finding myself thinking the same thing!!! What I liked best about this story is, how the characters realized their short comings and failures, then turned them around. Of course the love between the characters will light a fire in your loins!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like all the scenes!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book is one I wish I could listen to all in one sitting!! I almost did!


    Any additional comments?

    As a christian, I especially loved the references to God. Very touching. I would like to think God is still working in ways that bring the right people together. Being widowed, looking for my end of life partner, this book made me realize I could have appreciated my husband a little bit more. I'm hoping I will have a "second" chance!

    "This was a really enjoyable book"

    The story was good and the narrator was too! I used to read Jude years ago, but this was my first audible book by her and the narrator. I will definitely look for more.

    "My Favorite Romantic Historical Novel!"

    I love, love, love this book. The story is as vivid and amazing as when I first read it 20+ years ago. It actually made me cry at the love that Douglass and Nicholas shared. I loved Steve West's narration; I just wished that Douglass' voice would have been done by a female. Still was a great narration and the story was brought to life beautifully!

    "My favorite book of all time"

    I read this book about once every couple of years. This is the first time I listened to it. The narrator was a little hard to understand for this Texas girl but I eventually could understand what he was saying. This is a must own!!

    "Favorite book"

    I really loved this book on hard cover and hoped to find it on audio. Loved it even more. Steve West did a good job but I wished he gave our heroine a stronger voice. Otherwise, this is definitely a book I will read / listen to again.

    Story
    "Clever Author but extremely Annoying Heroine"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I managed to make it to the end, finally. It was well--imagined, but the heroine was wimpy, whiny, needy, irrational, and not too bright. Almost toward the end, I realized that perhaps she might not sound so whiny if it were not a male narrator. Perhaps the tone of her oft-repeated, "please..." would not sound so, well, like someone mimicking a whiny female request. The description of the thoughts of the people catapulted into different times was brilliant, and I finally finished reading it just because I wanted to find out how the author finished writing it! Oh, yes - and our poor heroine - finally and at long last - appeared to grow into a more reasonable human being.


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

    I'm clearly conflicted about this book, which seemed overly long. I've enjoyed other Deveraux books, but this one was more ambitious and required historical research - which was nicely folded into the narrative.


    Did Steve West do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He did a good job differentiating characters, but again, a female voice might possibly have made the heroine less irritating.


    Did A Knight in Shining Armor inspire you to do anything?

    It raised insoluble questions, such as: Should I push to finish books just because I bought them? Do I really enjoy romances? (I much prefer Georgette Heyer.) Why can't I find a book I want to read? Is it reasonable to return a book that I would rate above two stars (probably not).

    "Stop the tears"

    I was enjoying the book for the most part. Where I stopped liking it was the 4 days of crying. I also never really got into the narrator. I really liked Nicholas as a character.

    "GREAT and Amazing"

    A wonderful story made even better by the narration. Steve West brought an added dimension to a book that I have read many times with his amazing skill. Not only a MUST read it is now a MUST listen also.
