Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darla | 2/20/2014

    " Ms. Heyer repeats this theme quite a bit. She has several titles in which the protagonist stumbles upon a young, impoverished little chit of a girl and must save her. Again, well worth reading but not her best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/19/2014

    " The best male character of all her books. I just loved him! Absurdly hilarious conversations that I would read over and over because they were so funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Water | 2/14/2014

    " The hero of this novel, Gareth, is an absolute dream! What a fabulous character. His love interest Hester Theale, however, is not my favorite. She's endearing, but he could have done so much better! My biggest problem with the book, though, is that the story really revolves around Gareth and a secondary character named Amanda, while Hester is pushed into the background. Not Heyer's very best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/4/2014

    " Fun book. The young girl was a little crazy and unbelievable considering the time this book was written. However, it was very enjoyable and I loved the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Muriel | 2/2/2014

    " I loved this book but there was entirely too much focus on the ditzy Amanda so we really didn't get to see enough development between Gareth and Hester who I thoroughly liked together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 1/31/2014

    " A delightfully madcap adventure which in the end devolves into a delicious farce. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/14/2014

    " This book was riotous, and ridiculous, and silly, and unpredictable! It did lull a bit in the middle for me and I set it aside to read a few other books, but when I picked it up again my sense of adventure was renewed and I was extremely entertained. Amanda, one of the main characters, is completely absurd, yet so entirely entertaining...and such could be said for many of the other characters as well! Simply a fun, funny story, brought alive and kept intelligent by the unique prose of Georgette Heyer. I love this author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia Eason | 1/9/2014

    " Witty and fun "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noreen | 1/9/2014

    " Such a fun and funny book by one of my very favorite authors. It had the great characters of a Jane Austen with the witticisms and ridiculous situations of Oscar Wilde. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 10/8/2013

    " Cute, adorable, and I loved the last third MUCH more than the other parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 notyourmonkey | 10/5/2013

    " Amanda herself and all her shenanigans are deeply irritating to me, but I do love the almost-background relationship between Gary and Beatrix. Also, Amanda redeems herself somewhat by actually being steadfastly in love with Neil and not being quite as much of a ninny in an actual emergency. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 8/20/2013

    " Really enjoyed this fun Regency. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 laninaki | 8/16/2013

    " Too much Amanda (who reminds me of Lydia Bennet...never a good thing) and not enough of Hester and Gareth's story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ella | 5/28/2013

    " This was a fun book!! very amusing characters. couldn't help but laugh out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Fugal | 3/27/2013

    " If I could give this 3 1/2 stars I would. It started out a little slow to me, but I enjoyed the adventure and predicament, and I really liked the ending! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/28/2013

    " This is a fun, quick, regency read that is full of farce and humor. The situations are quite outrageous, but that's what makes this book fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Paulson | 12/8/2012

    " This is a fun book. It could be categorized as a caper more than a romance. The plot kept you wondering how it would end and did not disapoint. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee | 9/24/2012

    " Georgette Heyer's writing style merits five stars, but Amanda's unbearable. I'm sold on Heyer's work, though; will try The Grand Sophy or These Old Shades next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 8/21/2012

    " One of the funniest! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 6/14/2012

    " This was one of my least favorite Heyer books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/4/2012

    " One of the "later" titles with rather more plot than is necessary, and much less of the witty banter of the "earlier, good ones". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/14/2012

    " Probably my least favorite of the books I read during my Georgette Heyer binge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Black | 1/4/2012

    " My first Heyer, but it won't be the last. Loved it. Subtly satirical, fun, beautiful, sparkling prose. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hazel | 1/4/2012

    " Very amusing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/25/2011

    " Laughed out loud on this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lady Wesley | 11/12/2011

    " This was a fun but middling Heyer, with an annoying young woman but a bang-up last third. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 5/13/2011

    " Kind of blah -- felt like I'd already read this one before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/28/2011

    " Re-read this book the other day - one of my favorite books of Heyer's. Love the story! If you haven't read any of Georgette Heyer's, I highly recommend her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 4/2/2011

    " Really enjoyed this fun Regency. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 3/15/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. It is witty and fun, so many crazy and unlikely things happen and the end is especially good. It was my first Georgette Heyer novel and won't be my last. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leilani | 1/25/2011

    " Too much Amanda (who reminds me of Lydia Bennet...never a good thing) and not enough of Hester and Gareth's story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria | 1/17/2011

    " Starts out just a tad bit slow, but by the end you are just racing along. Fun, light, all ways something new. Just a wonderful, fun time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/14/2010

    " Thoroughly enjoyable, utterly implausible, and fantastic language- I defy you to fit another adjective anywhere in the book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/8/2010

    " Too much time spent on annoying girl and not enough with main couple. "
