After the death of her miserly cousin Antony North, Millicent Boarder is determined her family should never be poor or vulnerable again. To protect them, she conceals her cousin's death and assumes his identity.

Regency Romp par excellence

Flawlessly performed and a great deal of laugh out loud fun. I enjoyed it enormously.

Terrific Romp

Loved this book. And enjoyed the audio. Gender swap allowed a strong 'female' character to emerge in regency England. Very funny and plot sufficiently congruent to ignore some of the more ridiculous aspects. Recommended

RIDICULOUS….

The story line is truly ridiculous but that was exactly what made the book/story interesting 😀

Really good listen. Definitely recommend it.

The narration (although I had to speed up quite a bit) was excellent, male and female voices were both very good.
The story itself was also surprisingly good, it had only 3 other reviews when I bought it so it was a bit risky but I’m very pleased I took the chance.

Do not buy this book until a new narrator performs it

First let me start by saying I am a fan of D. L. Carter. The book Ridiculous is a hilarious story. I have read it before getting the audible version. I was one of many people who requested that D L Carter’s books be added to audible.
This is a prime example of how a narrator can ruin a book. This book is to be read with comedic timing... and emphasis. She reads the entire book as if it is serious! The title should have been a big hit that the book is a comedy...

My suggestion is to buy the book but not the audible version....

Yes, ridiculous!....

but enjoyable, if rather long winded. I amped the speed up to 1.15 and that helped. I guess after 13 hours and finding myself smiling at the end it couldn't have been anything less than entertaining.
