So, I have a thing for Richard Armitage. The man if flippin’ gorgeous, oh. my. god. He has these eyes and this really direct gaze and his voice…. *yowza*
(sorry, puddles on the floor don’t have fingers to type, hang on)
It was a really good abridgement because there didn’t seem to be any missing chunks of plot. Armitage has a great voice, expecially in his “Damerel/Rake” voice, mrrgrrrrmmm…. His ladies’ voices weren’t too bad, either, although sometimes they may have been unintentionally funny.
Loved the character of Aubrey – just a perfect, self-centered little brother.
I did some checking and it doesn’t seem like this has been adapted for television/movies. Someone get one that – Heyer is pretty dialogue heavy so easily adapted. Then you can cast Richard Armitage as Damerel for everyone to enjoy.
I have the audiobook of Sylvester as well – also narrated by Armitage. I can hardly wait.
(I am torn over Armitage’s casting in The Hobbit – he’s in The Hobbit (yay!) but he’s playing a dwarf (so covered in SFX make-up/hair) but it’s Thorin (yay!).)
