I read this book years ago and followed one of my favorite narrators here to Audible. Loved the story and, of course, Rosalyn Landor brings any audiobook to the next level.
Dull, story. the author was damn lucky to have Roslyn Landor to Narrate this book. I want my money back.
Where does The Adventurers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It ranks very highly indeed. The performance is really good - Rosalyn Landor makes each of the voices clear and distinct, conveying the emotion really well. The story is just what I want out of a regency novel - adventure, manners, and a convincing romance.
What did you like best about this story?
The setting was a very unusual one. The characters follow the allied army as it advances on Paris after the battle of Leipzig. This part of the Napoleonic war is virtually ignored, and it was brilliant - and brilliantly utilised in the story.
Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No, this is a first. But I see she has read several of my other favourite regencies, so I imagine it won't be a last.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
The difficulty with that is that the book is ten hours long, and while I could certainly have read the book in one sitting, that is because it is much faster reading than it is listening.
So no, but I did listen to it in every free moment I got.
Any additional comments?
This is a very traditional regency in many ways. It's a lot closer to An Infamous Army or These Old Shades in style and tone than a Julia Quinn. It's more serious than a lot of Heyers, though.
It's also worth noting that there are two romances going on at the same time and both move very slow while being perfectly obvious from the beginning.
