I listened to the audiobook, Naxos 2010 version. Richard Armitage's voices are amazing! I really enjoyed listening to this book. He did a fantastic job. Every character has a different voice, and even have different accents, which is great. I admit that I specifically bought this copy because of the narrator.
As for the actual plot, I liked it. I hadn't read this book before, so it was interesting to listen to. Venetia is a pretty likable character, and Lord Damerel is intriguing. I liked that they fell in love early on and knew it, too, instead of it being wrapped up in a couple pages at the end.
This book is a delight every time I read it. Of all Heyer's historicals, I love this one the most. Other favorites are False Colours, These Old Shades, and The Grand Sophy.
It is impossible to say which is my favourite Georgette Heyer novel - usually the one I read last. Venetia is definitely in the top five though. The leading couple are quite unlike any other Heyer wrote (though the Duke of Avon in These old shades comes close), and as always, the language is pure delight.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are open-minded, and outspoken and in this time period, it's a refreshing idea and makes for a great read.
I love this book. Venetia is my favorite lady of G. Heyer novels.
old-fashioned, yes, but fun. It's kind of like Jane Austen, but it moves along a lot better, and Austen never knew anything about horses.
Jane Austen-light. Heyer fizzes and sparkles.
One of my favorite Georgette Heyer books.
