Description

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.

Georgette Heyer - excellent.

Yet another brilliant book by audible.
Really well read and I love the musical interludes!

Competent but not brilliant

Firstly this is ABRIDGED, so you will miss many of your favourite lines eg "you have your own armour, do you not Frederick" "french Gabster!" etc. It is competently read, the reader does a good job with Freddy and Kitty, but is not as sure with some of the minor characters. I'd say pay the extra money and get the unabridged version. If your love Georgette Heyer, you will want every line.

An Abbreviated Cotillion

This abridged version covers the main plot lines and the narrator is good, but as a Georgette Heyer fan I was disappointed: some of my favorite passages were omitted. I will never buy an abridged book again.

Good performance but get the full version

I enjoyed Claire Willem's reading of Cotillion but the abridged version left so much of the comedic parts of the story! this is my favorite Heyer book because it was hilarious and Freddy is a gem but it doesn't show that too much in this version.

Hate the music in between chapters especially when it lasts 30 seconds

Aside from the annoying music I liked all else. GREAT performance by Clare Wille completed this historical romance.

One of my favorites

One of my favorite Georgette Heyer books and the narration by Clare Wille was quite amazing. She did a wonderful job bringing all the characters to life.

Such an entertaining story! Georgette Heyer writes about the most endearing heroines. I'm so glad to find them available in audio!

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.
