That is one of my favorite scenes from the book (and movie), but to hear him read it? Just, wow!KarenS
Karen, I know! It struck me speechless.
It's like you know just what I want, Angie.
I do, Nicole. I do.
Gosh. This has made my night! Thank you for showcasing this!
*grin* It was my pleasure.
Love it. I adore the book and the Richard Armitage, er I mean, the TV version with Richard Armitage *cough* ;)I wish there was an audio version of the whole book read by him. I could listen to his voice all day...
I would buy that audiobook so fast. It seems like a no-brainer to me. I can't believe they haven't done it yet. His voice . . .
Thanks so much for posting this, Angie. I love North and South very much (probably more than Pride and Prejudice). It's certainly a lot more passionate. If you loved the BBC mini-series, you should read the book itself as it expands on many of the scenes. Elizabeth Gaskell describes so well how those two fell in love. I feel a re-read coming on!
I have the book and I'm just sort of saving it for the right time. I know I'll love it.
God bless you, Angie. If you need me, I'll be in a puddle on the floor.
Oh my! Is it hot in here or what??? Love that scene, that reading!!!!! Loved him in The Hobbit also!
It does feel a bit close, now that you mention it. It really was the perfect scene to have him read,He greatly enhanced The Hobbit for me as well.
It's kind of the epitome of swoon-worthy.
When I found this clip on tumblr, my heart did a happy dance but it's even better as a youtube video with that photo montage. *emits a big, happy sigh* His voice is so lovely.
It's a perfect voice. The man is in possession of the perfect voice.
Such a treat, thank-you! This is incredible, that voice is to die for XD
It is incredible. And incredible treat.
You just made my evening! Thank you!
Ha! I'm delighted to have made your evening.
Dying of happiness-thanks :)
It's that good. You are welcome!
Ahh! I can't wait to get home so I can listen! Love Richard Armitage! And North and South. I really need to read the book, though.Thanks for sharing :)
I need to read it, too! After this passage, I can hardly wait.
Why thank you. Thank you very much :)
I knew you were a fellow connoisseur, Mandi. :)
Richard's voice is mine. Ahem.
You're so possessive . . .
I read this book, and wasn't a huge fan, but the miniseries is one of my favorite things ever. If he narrated an audiobook of this, I bet I'd even love the book. Oh, swoon!
Oh, that's interesting Christina. I have heard people say this is one instance in which the film outshines the book. And given my love for the film, I can kind of believe it. But him narrating the audiobook? Forgetaboutit...
For Christmas my sister bought me a Richard Armitage calendar - easily my favourite pressie for this year! Now I can sit here and look at Mr January and listen to this over and over and over. Sounds like a perfect Sunday morning to me!
You have a lovely sister and that is all there is to it. I think I need to see this calendar . . .
Late to the party but just wanted to say that this is awesome! Richard Armitage is love. <3
I knew you'd enjoy it, Chach. I don't know how he just goes about daily life speaking everything in THAT VOICE. It is distractingly good.
oh. my. goodness. I need to go rewatch that right now *sigh*
It's addicting. I could fall asleep to that voice.
