- The best way to describe the above video is through the words of Tumblr user and The Shoebox Project co-author, Rave:
“Okay I’ve been sitting on this knowledge for months and months, because ever since realizing none of my other friends had seen “North and South,” I have regarded Richard Armitage as my personal property/cross to bear. (KEEP HIM SECRET! KEEP HIM SAFE!!!) However, the time has come for you to know this: there is an audiobook of Richard Armitage reading classic regency romance “Venetia,” by Georgette Heyer, and it’s mercy status.
Like, is this the best Heyer in the world? Nah! Is the hero kind of unfortunately rapey in that way Georgette’s heroes sometimes veer toward where of course the heroine secretly likes it? Sure, a little! Is this audiobook Richard Armitage rumbling tenderly in your ear at every possible vibration, for five hours? You bet your sweet dixie cup ass it is!!! Cross your legs on the bus and blush through your daily commute, because this is HAPPENING to you. (BONUS: Richard Armitage also plays such characters as a sexy debutante and a tearful upper-crust matron. IT IS AMAZING!)”
