Loved it!

Great narration, fun to listen to. It has a few "intamate" scenes but nothing too detailed or mushy. I love the inclusion of LGBTQ relationships.

Entertaining

Hell Cats is an excellent audio production with engaging, convincing narrators & sound effects. The story is interesting, but the execution of the script is well done!

I caught my attention

I was confused at first because I’m not used to this format, but I wanted to give it a full episode before I gave up, and I’m glad I did because it’s really a good story so far! I’m excited to keep listening.

excellent production and great story

I loved how well written and exciting the story was. the characters are very well developed and complex and showed great nuance and learning over the 14 episodes. this is among the best Audible originals I've heard and it has a perfect bittersweet ending. the amazing part was how beautiful the songs were. I really wish they can produce an audio soundtrack of this show.

Exciting and intense

This was exciting, and sometimes very graphically violent. I found parts to be uncomfortable because of the violence. I’m not saying it was bad, just depends on your personality and whether you can handle that. I really, really liked all of the acting. Stellar acting in fact.

Perfect lockdown listen!!!

Beautifully written and produced. The characters were fascinating, imperfect, and still lovable. Lots of humour to counteract the intense scenes. I cheered, scolded, cackled and blubbered like a baby. A true drama to sweep you up and take you away.

Good luck following the nonexisting storyline.

Theres no storyline to follow, I hadto listen first 3 eps two times and i couldnt get the hang of it, whats happening, where and to who. Readers are great, otherwice it was like watching a movie blindfolded. :(

Brilliant!

Kept me enthralled. A few of the terms used were not strictly of the period, but the rest of it was good enough to make up for it.
Thoroughly enjoyable tale. My compliments to the entire company!

I loved everything about Hellcats! The voice of mark/Mary read was what first drew me in and what a character! a thrilling tale and a fun history lesson. If I wasn't so satisfied with the ending I'd be begging for more

A great historical play

Life in the 1700s had women as a husbands property but this story is about 2 independant adult women, who started life as a bastard and an orphan , and defied the rules of the day. I loved listening to a magnificent cast who portrayed the love, fear, pain and joy of the characters in this wonderful story
