An Accomplished Woman

I loved this audiobook, perfect narration in my opinion and I found it a lovely, gentle story, the closest I've found to Georgette Heyer in more modern writing - really enjoyed this.

One for Jane Austen fans.


I enjoyed this book. It?s a little stodgy in places but overall an entertaining listen. Lots of nods in J.A.?s direction and occasionally laugh out loud funny; although the humour is very sly. The reader is excellent. You can?t really go wrong.

Lovely

I confess, it took me several months to get past the first two chapters of 'An Accomplished Woman', which is odd as I usually devour audiobooks narrated by Phyllida Nash (who is always excellent). After a 4 month hiatus, I began listening to it again after christmas and after that i simply couldn't stop listening!

It is a little slow to start off, but after awhile I found the main character, Lydia Templeton, to be utterly engaging, hilariously witty and very, very likeable. I haven't loved a Regency heroine this much since I first picked up 'Pride and Prejudice' 12 years ago. The few character plot twists presented in the second half of the audiobook were unexpected but left me with such a lovely feeling of satifaction that when the last word had been spoken I had to listen to the entire book all over again!

If you're a fan of Austen, Elizabeth Aston or Georgette Heyer - or indeed, of Phyllida Nash - you should absolutely spend a credit on this audiobook. I'm now looking to buy a printed copy of it!!

for fans of Heyer and Austen-homages

(And you know who you are, even if you don't admit it publicly.)

This is one of the wittiest and well-written cures for the information overloaded brain produced since Heyer.
