Be still, my beating heart.
It all started yesterday, when I ran across Becky's review of Venetia. I always enjoy Becky's reviews and I eagerly clicked on this one as I have yet to read any Georgette Heyer books and had decided a few months ago that Venetia would be my first--and then promptly never got around to it. My eyes didn't even make it to the beginning of the review, however, as they caught on Becky's statement at the top that the version she read was actually the audio book as narrated by Richard Armitage.
A little quick investigating revealed that NAXOS AudioBooks has released two Georgette Heyer books narrated by Richard Armitage. The first was Sylvester, the second Venetia, and a third is on the way in August. These are abridged versions, which is unfortunate, but Becky mentioned in her excellent review that she read the book itself first and then listened to the audio book and they were both wonderful experiences. And the awesome thing is NAXOS has an excerpt up on their site you can listen to. And you really must. I turned it on in the background and continued to work on several other tasks on my computer. I ended up, hands in my lap, gazing at the screen blankly, listening to the sound of his voice. I think I may have just added another item to my wishlist. The question is: what else do you think we could get him to read?
