This might surprise you

I actually liked this. It's not a romance, it's a deliberate parody of romance. To be more specific, it feels more like a 17th/18th century heroic adventure with modern sensibilities and irreverence - something like Don Quixote meets The Princess Bride. The dialogue, situations and interactions are all seriously over the top, with tongue firmly in cheek. The narrator is perfect, and the other characterizations are good. The characters themselves are pretty two-dimensional, but in this idiom, they'd almost have to be.

I was a little aprehensive after reading the previous reviews, but was pleasantly surprised to find I was thouroughly enjoying the story after listening to the first couple of chapters. About the only thing I wasn't happy about was the ending, which felt rather abrupt. Apart from that, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this audio book. If your taste runs toward more contemporary fantasy writing, this might not be your cup of tea. This is not Xena. If on the other hand you enjoy more classical adventure stories, such as Alexander Dumas, you might dig this.

Is this a romance novel?

I expected this to be a bit cheesy, but I did not expect a romance novel. I finally had to stop listening after Bradamant's body was described (lusterous hair and strong supple this and that) for the hundredth time. There is no character development and very little adventure and the full cast audio must have been pulled from a community theater group. Don't just avoid this book, run away!

Disappointing

A somewhat confusing and disjointed story. The sounds effects were truly horrific in terms of quality. The acting was of a very poor standard. Worst of all though were the laughably bad sex scenes which contained some of the funniest similes I have ever heard in my life, which was obviously not the intention. Overall very poor production and I would steer well clear of any other audiobooks made by these guys. I give it two stars because I actually finished it, although that was more due to the absence of anything else to listen to.
