Disappointing narration

I love Georgette Heyer, and have listened to several of her novels with great enjoyment. Unfortunately, The Convenient Marriage, narrated by Caroline Hunt, was very disappointing. Her voice lacked the depth to convey the power and the irony in Rule's remarks - they sounded ineffective and sometimes just silly. Henrietta's voice was distinctive, but most of the other characters were indistinguishable (except for the secretary - was he really supposed to be Irish?). Any Georgette Heyer has some appeal to me, but I hope the book is redone at some point with a different reader, so I can enjoy it as much as I have some of her other works.

This version includes missing final 22 minutes

This copy contains the 22 minutes at the end of the audio that were missing from the May 2010 release of this audio. The narrator does a fine job with the stuttering heroine. Thanks, audible!
