Listener Opinions

    " One of the best from Heyer! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Nagatomo | 2/8/2014

    " A delightful romp through Heyer's world. Sparkling dialog and entertaining characters--laughed aloud many times and was sorry to come to the end of the book. "

    " Someone recently asked if I was born on a Friday. I was Friday's Child! loving and giving. Then I found this book. Synchronicity all around! And light historical romantic fiction to boot. I was entertained by this bit of old-fashioned Polite World silliness, laughing aloud at the befuddlements and misunderstandings of romance. I could imagine it as a movie. But unless you are 60-something and previously smitten by the novels of Delderfield, Howatch and Austen, it will probably not be your English cup of tea. "

    " One of my first GH books, but a light story just made to captivate a high school girl. "

    " Lord Sheringham spurned by the woman he loves vows to marry the next female he sees. That happens to be his childhood friend Miss Hero Wantage. In trying to emulate Lord Sheringham and win his love, Hero gets into a series of scrapes, until a misunderstanding causes her to flee and Lord Sheringham realizes how much she has come to mean to him. Georgette Heyer at her best. "

    " This is a regency-era England take on a cross between A Midsummer's NIght Dream & Much Ado About Nothing. One of the main character's is even named Hero. The main characters are selfish, volatile, of questionable morals, naive, & submissive & adoring to a fault, yet somehow so likable. I found this book super funny. It's a light, fast read. It could have been cut down a bit in the last 100 pages. It also uses so much regency-era slang that I had to Google Georgette Heyer to find a list of terms & definitions. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 12/17/2013

    " My least favorite of Heyer's books thus far. It is well written, but I found myself annoyed with the childish actions is the characters throughout. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Merry | 12/17/2013

    " Rare - high quality romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 12/9/2013

    " I'd almost give this a 5 star rating, just from Ferdy's dialogue about Nemesis, that Greek fellow that follows you around and sneaks up on you when you least expect it. Hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Stemp | 11/14/2013

    " I do enjoy Georgette Heyer for a short read, she does regency so well, pure escapism but lots of giggles along the way "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 11/6/2013

    " This was such a fun fast paced regency era novel. I thought it was funny and sweet. I liked a lot of the characters. I thought Sherry's thieving Tiger was hilarious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/21/2013

    " I didn't like Hero as much as some of Heyer's heroines, but the book was pleasantly fluffy and enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Varsha Seshan | 7/6/2013

    " Hero Wantage is innocence at its most adorable. I love the awkwardness of quarrel, the ingenuous desire to please and the willingness to laugh in this book. And Ferdy, with the Greek fellow chasing him and his dislike of the Bad Man, is priceless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Londonmabel Mabel | 3/28/2013

    " This is the first Heyer I read, and it holds up to re-reads. I'd forgotten what the character arc of the hero was, and once again lurved his gang of buddies. So funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Taylor | 11/4/2012

    " Very fun read. I had to get used to the English writing, but thoroughly enjoyed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 5/26/2012

    " The star of this book was Jason, the kleptomaniac tiger (groom)! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 5/5/2012

    " Rereading my Georgette Heyer's. Ah, bliss. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liliana | 8/24/2011

    " I enjoy Heyer as comfort reading like comfort food. The wit/silliness make me laugh and I need that some times more than others. I enjoyed the 'heroes and their friends'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 7/12/2011

    " Always enjoyable to read Heyer. This offering is in her "silly young people" category of novel, while I (as an intelligent older woman) prefer her non-traditional heroines who are "older and wiser." Still, a cast of characters worthy of Wodehouse. Lots of chuckles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 5/12/2011

    " My first Heyer. A good intro to her work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruthette | 3/26/2011

    " This is at least my third read-through and the story still gripped me enough to get me out of bed early on a Monday morning to finish reading before work this morning.

    Well done, Georgette Heyer! This is one of your best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marney | 3/4/2011

    " This is one of her best. Very funny and lovely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalya | 2/14/2011

    " So much fun watching the plot unfold... Hero is outside of enough but you love her anyway. And seeing Sherry mature is delightful. Yes I love this book if you didn't notice ? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Merry | 2/9/2011

    " Rare - high quality romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/25/2011

    " This is by far my favorite book by Georgette Heyer. I found the characters charming...even Isabella. I laughed so much while reading this book. "
