A Loyal Companion | [Barbara Metzger]

A Loyal Companion

Spoiled and ungoverned, Fitz was not suitable companion for a lady of fashion....And certainly no proper chaperon. Fitz begged to disagree - after all, a dog was a true incomparable as far as friendship, loyalty, and protection - and soon lovely Miss Sonia was plucked by her rusticated roots and packed off, dog and all, to London. Perhaps there she would find a husband to tame her free-spirited ways - and keep her out of trouble.

Publisher's Summary

Spoiled and ungoverned, Fitz was not suitable companion for a lady of fashion...

And certainly no proper chaperon. Fitz begged to disagree--after all, a dog was a true incomparable as far as friendship, loyalty, and protection - and soon lovely Miss Sonia was plucked by her rusticated roots and packed off, dog and all, to London. Perhaps there she would find a husband to tame her free-spirited ways - and keep her out of trouble.

Sonia, however, always had a soft spot for the underdog, and Darius Conover was such a fellow. Scorned by society for a scandalous deed, Conover was not redeemed even by his heroics in battle. Until he met Sonia and Fitz, two passionate souls undaunted by even the most odious circumstances - and decidedly determined to undo the shackles binding his heart.

    Story
    "A Cute, Light Read; But Not Stupid"
    Would you listen to A Loyal Companion again? Why?

    Yes, it's a nice kind of relaxing book that's very good for a car trip or pool-side.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was pleasant without being stupid. It's hard to find a book that's light and funny, but also well written.


    What about Stevie Zimmerman’s performance did you like?

    I liked her voices very much, I just wish the audio quality had been better. It varied, but was generally of sub-par quality. It also skipped a little here and there.


    Any additional comments?

    Lovely, funny little book. It's also quite clean, so I'd feel comfortable giving it to a precocious child or more conservative older person. I hope Audible picks up more from the author and voice actress. I just wish the audio quality was better.

    Story
    "Loved Fitz the dog's point of view"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Loyal Companion to be better than the print version?

    I read the book years ago and was very happy to see this book on audible. The audio just enhances the book. I have the book, audio, and Kindle versions - if I really like a story, I buy it in all the forms in which it is available.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Fitz the dog!!! I loved the comments from Fitz. For example, when Darius is looking for a kidnapped character, he comments to Fitz, "They have a good lead on us. Do you think you can find [the] coach in this mess, huh, Fitz?" And Fitz thinks to himself, "Of course I can. I peed on it [the wheel], didn't I?"


    Which character – as performed by Stevie Zimmerman – was your favorite?

    They were all good. I liked the way she used a lower class accent for Fitz.


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

    Yes. I also listened to it with my sister whenever we were in the car.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Barbara Metzger's earlier books, like this one. I'd like to see her earlier books in audio form.

    "A light, fun read"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I am very fond of books where a dogs take part in the narration. They make me look at my dog differently. I am sure my behavior exasperates him at times.
