Excellent! This was my first Audible book and I enjoyed it immensely! I travel quite a bit for my work and listened to it via Bluetooth on my car stereo ... Loved it and will download the next one in the series right now. Thank you Davina for breathing life into these wonderful characters :-)
I am a true Outlander fan and I really enjoyed reading this. In places where I thought the plot predictable, it surprised me, and pacing was excellent. Enough spots where you could be satisfied putting the book aside to get the things you need to do done, but strong enough that returning to it at end of day was without question. DG's overused word/repeated imagery this book is "landed trout" although "inexorable" does make several trusty appearances.
Rarely do I sit and read and forget to feed my family. This series does just thar. well written, audio is marvelous and my hardback books of this series are snug on the bookcase.
Claire and Jamie are building their farm, although in N. Carolina they have rejected slave ownership as neither wants the burden of conscience. Ian has grown and finds his own way.
Brianna has made her own time jump to meet her father. Her intended follows her. Here the stories interweave and scamper around the colonies looking for resolution. I enjoy these books. I love Davina Porters' interpretation over all. I feel Ms Garabaldon was trying to meet a certain number of pages and the usual continuity of her plots suffered. That said, I am buying the next of the series when I finish this review.
This is one of those books you can listen to again and again and again without getting bored. This is my go-to series that I ALWAYS have loaded on my old school zune.
The characters are life-like and the story is intriguing. This is only VERY loosely resembling a romance. It has way more meat to it than your typical trash romance novel.
Awesome narrator. Far superior than the typical narrator.
Here's a clear listing of the series order - it should be noted that the author often starts her books in a way that makes you feel like you have the order wrong. Keep calm and read on. The confusion will pass soon enough.
2. Dragonfly in amber
4. Drums of autumn
5. The fiery cross
6. A breath of snow and ashes
7. An echo in the bone
8. Written in my own hearts blood
