Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The only question which hangs over the life of Sir Richard Wyndham, notable whip, dandy and Corinthian, is one of marriage. On the eve of making the most momentous decision of his life, he is on his way home, a little worse for drink, when he chances upon a beautiful young fugitive climbing out of a window by means of knotted sheets - and so finds a perfect opportunity for his own escape.

The Corinthian has eveything that Georgette Heyer's devoted readership came to expect and that made her one of the most popular novelists of her day and still adored by a huge audience.

Sad narration

A great book somewhat spoiled by a narrator who mispronounced words and placed emphases wrongly. She did not seem to understand the subtle humour of the book. A great shame.

Classic Heyer

One of Heyer's lighthearted stories spoilt by using a narrator totally unsuited to the style of the story. Unfortunately, the works of the greatest Regency Romance author have not been treated well by the publishers who have appointed narrators not suited to the task in many instances..

Big georgette Heyer fan but disappointed

After reading a review that this was one of her funniest novels I was very disappointed. I am not sure if it was the novel lacking in humour or if it was just that the narrator did not suit this novel. Either way the narrator was not the right choice for this book. She was not annoying or irritating, just unfortunately didn’t suit the novel.

I recommend the audible version of the reluctant widow and sprig Muslin. Brilliant captured here on audible.

Typical wonderfully Georgette Heyer

Very nice narration. Full of twists and turns. Enjoyable to the end. I wish I had been born (Rich) in the Regency age.
