(Audiobook) Venetia

Venetia - Georgette Heyer, Richard Armitage

Ugh...fabulous.

 

Richard Armitage's fantastic narration only added to Georgette Heyer's fantastic writing.

 

And while this version is abridged, it flowed quite nicely, at least to me, at any rate. It's been some years since I've read the complete version of the novel, and had it been a bit fresher in my mind, I might be of a different opinion. I did notice that quite a bit is cut from the end of the novel (that whole bit about the orgies, for one), but it is still quite effective and swoon-worthy.

 

Five stars to both author and narrator.
