I was so happy to see this title amongst the recent Naxos audiobook recordings of Georgette Heyer's books, as I haven't seen another reading of it anywhere. However, the narrator was badly cast. Her reading is slow-paced with strange silences as she appears to be trying to alter her voice for her characters and her intonation is hammy and irritating. It feels quite amateurish, which I'm sure Naxos wasn't intending, having commissioned excellent readings by Richard Armitage and Clare Wille. (The recent unabridged version of Sylvester by Nicholas Rowe, while far more professionally delivered, also lacks sparkle and wit and sympathy with the story and characters - he sounds bored and I found myself constantly drifting off, despite being riveted by a previous unabridged recording, now forced out of print by the new version). I'm not sure I'll be able to listen to the full recording of Faro's Daughter as the clumsy reading is fast putting me off what was a previous favourite. What a pity Naxos didn't find readers more in tune with Heyer's light but immensely fun novels for these two readings.
