  • I gotta say, Christian Coulson absolutely killed it as the narrator of "The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue." Usually, I struggle to stay focused on audiobooks, but this one had me hooked from start to finish. The sister's sassiness added a nice touch, but the real magic came from the relationship between Percy and Monty (or should I say, Henry). Honestly, I felt like I could relate to Monty's knack for getting into trouble on a spiritual level. This book fearlessly tackles some heavy topics like sexuality and abuse, so if you've got some homophobic tendencies, best to steer clear. But let me tell you, listening to this story made me feel like I was right there in Monty's world. Overall, I'd give it a solid 4.75 out of 5. Absolutely worth a listen!
  • Rephrased review of 'The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue': This book is absolutely charming and heartfelt, with a perfect blend of adventure. It's the kind of story that you could read over and over again and never tire of. The novel has such a strong voice, filled with humor and unapologetic authenticity. I can't help but want to embrace it, even though I experienced it through the audiobook format. The main character is a captivating and charming rogue who constantly finds himself in sticky situations. I particularly loved the fact that his sister was one of the supporting characters. It's rare to see such a relevant sibling dynamic in young adult literature, especially when the sibling is involved in the thrilling adventure. It added a refreshing dynamic to the story. The teenage characters were portrayed realistically, capturing the essence of their age. Despite the book's historical setting, it still felt vibrant and relatable. These characters have a way of stealing pieces of your heart, but you won't mind it one bit.
  • The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue struggles to define its genre, blending elements of historical romance, fantasy mystery, social justice commentary, and adventure into a single narrative. Although I was drawn to its well-crafted writing and endearing gay romance, the book's unpredictable plot twists frequently threw me off track. Despite this, I would still recommend it, with the caveat that it may not fulfill the romantic expectations set by its advertising. On a positive note, the reader's performance was exceptional!
  • The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue proved to be more bothersome than entertaining. It may not appeal to those with a deep appreciation for history, and it certainly doesn't serve as a suitable handbook for gentlemen. However, for impolite and ill-mannered teenagers, this book offers a wild and thrilling adventure.
  • This audiobook was a blast to listen to, perfect for young adults. What I particularly enjoyed was the diverse representation of characters, as not everyone was portrayed as straight or white. Although the historical accuracy regarding the treatment of non-white and non-straight characters may not be entirely correct, it was refreshing to read something that brought some happiness. The narration truly shines, immersing the listener into the story. For teenagers who are into romance, there's plenty of sexual tension but not much physical action. However, younger listeners might find some of the sexual tension a bit confusing or absolutely exciting, depending on their perspective. The main characters experience deep longing, and their bodies respond accordingly to their emotions.
  • This audiobook initially shows a lot of promise with its enjoyable characters, but unfortunately, the lack of creativity in the plot somehow manages to make even the exciting elements like alchemy and pirates feel boring.
