Published by Heinemann, About this Item: Heinemann, , A very good copy in the original dull blue ribbed cloth gilt, spine ends lightly worn. It is not boring, but not much action in the first chapter.
Don't let that put you off because things take off in the second chapter of her books and is totally absorbing from then to the end. Phyllida Nash is always a pleasure to listen to. An excellent reader who characterizes the different voices with humor and subtlety. This is the most enjoyable story - adventure, intrigue, humorous and a touch of romance in the wonderful setting of regency England.
Georgette Heyer is a great read but this is one of her best! Phyllida Nash was wonderful!! Her accents were fabulous and her narrative spot on!! Thank you for hours of enjoyment! Highly recommended! Charming, frivolous, decently written and well read. Glad I downloaded it. This extra sentence should be long enough to complete the minimum characters on my review. I was so pleased to see this in the new release list today. I hope this means that Audible has a release programme for Heyer and will be issuing all of them over a period of time.
Although even better news would be to hear that some of the more poorly read ones from the old Chivers back catlogue have been re-recorded, starting with Devil's Cub, which is already on Audible's list in its original unlistenable to format! The Talisman Ring is one of my favourites. Georgette Heyer is very undemanding but should have you gently giggling from page 1. They are light, feel-good books which I save for days when I'm feeling rotten or to help me unwind when work is particularly stressful.
Not everyone's cup of tea, I know, but don't mistake for cheap imitations and if you a looking for something undemanding to relax with, this one is worth a try. I have just finished this audio book, and it was a real treat, beautifully read and great fun. It was always one of my favourite Georgette Heyer books and this version does full justice to it.
Strongly recommended if you fancy a light heated romance! I was so pleased when I realized that Audible had Georgette Heyer in their catalogue that I immediately bought this and a couple of others. The Talisman Ring was always my favourite Heyer book - mostly for the beautifully drawn characters, witty dialogue and Regency details.
Its a book that makes time fly and you are slightly disappointed to reach the end as you want it to go on. It is beautifully read by Phyllida Nash who manages to have convincing male characters, which not every female reader can do and a lovely French accent that always sounds natural. I would always recommend this for a relaxing, amusing book with a bit of a detective puzzle included. Phyllida Nash's narration is perfect, not a voice out of place. I enjoyed this so much. This is a comedy tour-de-force that's dependant on each character being distinct, but not over the top, otherwise it would just be a far fetched piece of nonsense.
In Nash's hands or rather voice each one is individual, and all spot on. She is fast becoming my favourite Heyer narrator. Please can she be commissioned for Frederica next? Georgette Heyer is not only wonderfully accurate on all details of the regency period but her books are such good fun. This one is no exception. The story is light-hearted but full of enough twists and turns to keep you interested to the end. The characters are delightfully attractive or wicked as required and the witty dialogue highly entertaining. If you want some light listening to lift your spirits or wile away a long journey you could not do better that chose this book.
The reader was a delight to listen to.
A mystery, two love stories and an interesting historical background together with some very likeable characters. How does this one compare? She is very good.

This is an excellent reading of vintage Heyer - the characters are well-realised, the humour is given full rein, and the mystery twists and turns to a satisfactory conclusion. If you already love Georgette Heyer you won't be disappointed by this version, and if you are new to her novels this is a fun one to start with! Phyllida Nash reads this beautifully and pulls off the very difficult challenge of producing a convincing French accent that doesn't stray into parody.
A very enjoyable listen.
The Talisman Ring
Another great book by Georgette heyer. She has so many good ones please bring some more out. I was so happy to find this one in Audible! I add my pleas to those who wish to see more Georgette Heyer's books in Audible, unabridged and - if only possible - read by Phyllida Nash.
