    Story
    "Whiny heroine"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The narrator did not do a great job with the herione. She came across very whiny. Also, the story attempted to make the herione out to be some sort of liberated woman, but it wasn't convincing.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Why did Nicolas forget everything when he returned but Douglas remembers? Why did Douglas come forward with her clothes but Nicolas came in his armor - I didn't think Nicolas was wearing armor in his jail cell.

    Robert was just silly and completely unrealistic. Why would a liberated woman stay with him.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I kept trying to imagine this as a movie but I don't think the story has enough depth for a movie.

    "Absolutely Brilliant"

    Never thought I would like a story that undulated in between different times and yet I find myself in a trans. The book is so well written that you can not but to completely melt into the characters. The story takes over and becomes real to the point where you question your own world around you. What if?... I sit here, just having finished the book, in numbing wonder. Purchase this book knowing it will forever leave the most pleasant imprint in your heart and mind.

    "Pretty schmaltzy!"

    If you like super corny love and time travel stories this is for you. I did listen to the whole book, so it wasn't completely unworthy, but then I felt a little icky afterward! Would never admit I listened to this book and certainly would not recommend it.

    "Best story ever"

    I fell I love with this book years ago when it first came out and 25 other people read it after me loving it just as much as I did. Today I love it even more. The way Steve West narrated made it come even more alive that reading it myself. Thank you.

    "Favourite JD story"
    If you could sum up A Knight in Shining Armor in three words, what would they be?

    JD's very best!


    Have you listened to any of Steve West’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I enjoyed him immensley and will not hesitate to listen to his other works. Good job Steve!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had a lot of emotions reading this book. It is one of the things I love about JD and Steve West is a fine actor.

    Story
    "One of my favorites!"
    What did you love best about A Knight in Shining Armor?

    I read and loved this book in hard cover and was excited to find an unabridged audio version!

    I purchased the abridged version two years ago and was extremely disappointed in both the narrator and the amount of editing that was done to shorten the story.

    When I read the reviews about the narrator in this version I was a bit concerned but, I have to say, I enjoyed the performance of Steve West much more than I did that of Stephanie Zimbalist in the abridged version.

    This is the Knight in Shining Armor I read and fell in love with back in 1989!

    After much anticipation, this story was a dissapointment in comparison to her other writing. Don't waste your time with this one...

    Story
    "The importance of a narrator."

    The story is good if you like time traveling fantasy and romance. I enjoy this kind of stories. This one is good in the way that presents both sides of a coin. Meaning that you can experience our century through the wondrous eyes of someone from the past and then see Elizabethan Era through our modern eyes with the ambivalence that the portray of those times give us from the 21st. Century. The part I did not like of the story is the weeping maiden...The stereotype of the "DOORMAT WOMAN". Despite that, the story is enjoyable. WHAT IS AWFUL is the NARRATION!
    Let me explain myself. As an audiobook fan I respect and appreciate narrators. But I found out that there is the RIGHT & WRONG narrator for each story. So, Mr. S. West does read nicely the descriptive parts of the story, and even the male voices are ok, BUT really, when he does the female voices it isn't pretty to say the least. I kept rolling my eyes and feeling kind of embarrassed, since the part sounded...I don't know, silly, stupid. I believe there are male narrator that can do female voices much better, and/or female narrators that can do male voices not badly. OR...what I like best: BOTH, FEMALE AND MALE NARRATOR.
    Alas, a good story down because of a wrong choice of narrator.

    Story
    "Not her Best."

    My first impression after 50mins into this book is that Douglas is either very very stupid or likes being a doormat, cause apparently she not only lets her family mock her and walk all over her but also the man she deems perfect marriage material. She has medieval coins in her hand and can’t tell the difference between medieval coins and normal everyday coins. She’s supposed to be a school teacher!! How can you not tell? The first this about being a teacher is that you’re curious about everything! She just gives the coins for train fair without even giving them a second glance. I mean seriously, you’re in a new country wouldn’t you look at your coins carefully to see that you have exact fare. Even though you’re a teacher in the US you do learn about English currency and wouldn’t any teacher look at the coins to see if they are the same as the ones in the pictures from the time she taught. She is seriously being airheaded. I despise the author for creating such a character. A disgrace to the female kind. I love JD's other titles but this short of turning my stomach.
