Yes! It's a great book, read by an excellent narrator
Yes, the other novels in the Outlander series. They are all excellent so far!
I only have two pieces of negative feedback: 1) The audio during some of the books in the Outlander series that I've listened to so far seem to have some background noise. Like every once in a while you'll hear other sounds and noises that were going on while Davina Porter was recording. 2) The audio book "chapters" for this book and I believe the novel before it (Voyager) didn't follow the chapters in the book. I'm not so concerned about the numbers adding up, but when the scroll bar says there are 8 minutes remaining the chapter and then 8 minutes later it simply rolls over to another timer (that maybe says 45 min) it gets a bit frustrating. Sometimes in the middle of a scrollbar that says 45 min remaining a new chapter will suddenly be announced. I'm one that likes to listen to a whole chapter or segment before stopping. When the scrollbar/timer has no meaning it's hard to know how long this upcoming segment will really be or how much more time is actually remaining. I hope that makes sense...
Audio books are my new favorite thing, I'm catching up on so many books. If you know any good dystopia novels, please recommend them to me!
After listening to Voyager I was hoping for something a little different and certainly got what I wished for. This book, besides the first, was my favorite of the series. Same adventure and romance as always but with excellent turns of fate. Loved it!
I think one of the things I like about this series is that you never know what's going to happen. And, no matter how mad you get when something goes completely wrong, you keep reading until it all works out (mostly) in the final chapter. The narration is excellent.
Yes. Yes. A thousand times, YES. Davina Porter is fantastic. And Diana's writing is unparalleled. Together, they make the best series of all time.
Yes, it's a wonderful story!
The history, the romance and not knowing what would happen next.
I love hearing the different accents. She does them all so Well!
One of my favorites.
She brings the characters to life.
This series is my favorite. Unfortunately, as I'm getting older I can't enjoy reading as I once did. This book is wonderful company for me while doing housework or during my long commutes.
Diana Gabaldon's knowledge is awazing: history, medicine, geograhy, culture, human nature. She keeps surprising me. And she wraps this all together in great stories that are always interesting and exciting.
The narrator is perfect for this series, not only with her voice quality, which is easy to listen to, but with her ability create so many distinct characters.
Drums of Autumn, along with the other books in the Outlander series, is one of my favorite books to get lost in. Davina Porter's performance is outstanding.
Davina Porter's wonderful Scottish accent, as well as her English and American accents, makes the book come alive.
I would love to be able to listen to the entire book in one sitting but since it is approximately 8 hours long that would nearly impossible barring a long airplane trip .

There are few things that get better as the series progresses. By this book, the 6 or 7 colours in Jamies hair including cinnabar and cinnamon (god give me strength) arnt constantly being related, now its down to just 1 or 2 colours. Unfortunately he still has to put his hand on her "bottom"at least twice a chapter. Thankfully the sex scenes are toned down and the guys have stopped drinking breast milk from the source ( I hope)
There are noticeable periods especially in the next book when the author is spinning her wheels and there are a couple chapters of pure fill. I found myself rewinding again and again to see if there was something I missed but in the end it was just a large chunk filled with filler drivel. She could have used those periods to further develop one of the characters. I hope the quality is maintained and I haven't passed the peak of the authors ability to float the story ! This is my first experience with a series, following the characters through many books, its a fascinating experience for me as someone who has always wanted to try their hand at writing.
I'm curios as to what the author is going to write down the road . I wonder what she could or would produce if she turned her prodigious talents to something a bit more serious.
