Frederica is one of Georgette Heyers best, and translates wonderfully into audio. I thoroughly enjoyed this audio version of one of my long time favorites. Narrator Clifford Norgate does a wonderful job making these charactors come to life. Thank you Audible for making books by this author available. Please keep them coming.

Wonderful audio book presentation - the reader is exceptionally good, handling the variety of characters with charm and animation. I adore Georgette Heyer novels, and this one, while possibly not the most traditionally romantic (ie the heroine while very charming, is a little prosaic) has a wonderful richness of plot and characterisation. Spend the money and experience the pleasure.

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.

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.

Most of the time my view is that books like these should be read by a female voice. Clifford Norgate refutes this idea: great delivery, mastery of all the voices, and a beautiful narration for a delightful Heyer
Georgette Heyer has once again shown her readers how to produce a wonderful book after faultless research into the Regency period.
