Inhaltsangabe

Young Kitty Charing stands to inherit a vast fortune from her irascible great-uncle Matthew - provided she marries one of her cousins. Kitty is not wholly adverse to the plan, if the right nephew proposes. Unfortunately, Kitty has set her heart on Jack Westruther, a confirmed rake, who seems to have no inclination to marry her anytime soon. In an effort to make Jack jealous, and to see a little more of the world than her isolated life on her great-uncle's estate has afforded her, Kitty devises a plan. She convinces yet another of her cousins, the honorable Freddy Standen, to pretend to be engaged to her. Her plan would bring her to London on a visit to Freddy's family and (hopefully) render the elusive Mr. Westruther madly jealous. Thus begins Cotillion, arguably the funniest, most charming of Georgette Heyer's many delightful Regency romances.

Cotillion is here presented in Naxos AudioBooks style, with classical music enhancing the production. This is the first of two Heyer titles planned for 2009. Clare Wille was widely praised for her reading of Cranford.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

No music during the Audiobook stories please!!

As a fan of Georgette Heyer a decided to buy the abridged version of Cotillion as it was the only one available - I usually only buy unabridged stories. I listened to a short passage to see whether I liked the reader and then made my purchase. I was extremely irritated when I discovered that, for some inexplicable reason, the producers had interspersed the dialog with loud music! Do they never stop to consider that most people do not wish the story to be suddenly interrupted by loud and undesired music between chapters! As I usually listen just before I fall asleep (and indeed use the "sleep timer" on my phone so that I am not disturbed if I fall asleep whilst listening) I find it very annoying to be suddenly roused by loud music. I have now relegated "Cotillion" to the list of stories I only hear whilst working in the house or garden. I shall in future listen to a longer "test" before deciding on my purchase!

Langweilig

Ich fand es so langweilig, dass ich es nach wenigen Kapiteln unterbrochen habe.
Normalerweise mag ich Kleypas und Philips (um meine Kritik besser einordnen zun können:). Das Werk hier fand ich betulich und langweilig.
