Great Fun

I remember Frederica being one of my favourite Georgette Heyer books when I was an avid fan many years ago. I am so glad that I listened to the friend who told me they made excellent audio listening. She was right. I knew how accurate Georgette Heyer was on Regency matters but had forgotten (or not realised so long ago) just how funny the books were - particularly Frederica. The book is beautifully read. What a tonic it was to listen to the exploits of the different members of the Merriville family - not forgetting the dog!

I highly recommend Frederica - particularly if you are looking for some light relief in these days of so much doom and gloom. It is also a great companion for a long drive or a tedious journey.

By far my favourite narration of a Heyer novel!

I have purchased every available unabridged Georgette Heyer audiobook, and have read most of her novels.

Frederica was one of my top 5 Heyer novels prior to listening, and I absolutely adore Clifford Norgate's narration. His character voices are brilliant, especially in his capturing of Alverstoke's dry humour (which had me laughing out loud in parts) and in Felix's mischievous plaguing of his Marquis cousin.
I really hope Clifford Norgate will narrate other Heyer novels.

The story is humourous, believable, and romantic. One I keep coming back to listen to and enjoy again and again.
