If you haven't read the series yet, I envy you. Start with OUTLANDER, then DRAGONFLY IN AMBER, then the VOYAGER, and lastly (for now) to this one, DRUMS OF AUTUMN. The reader is perfect, the story is hauntingly beautiful, funny, and powerful; the author is a genius. There are two more and whenever they come to audible in their unabridged versions, I'll buy them. Until then, I'll wait; I'll listen to other books, and I'll probably listen again to parts of these. I might have to buy the physical books. Enjoy. FIVE STARS as are each of the others in the series.
Bookaholic. Favorite authors- Agatha Christie, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert A Heinlein.
Great story. I can't wait for the next two books to be made available by Audible in the unabridged version.
I found another listener's comment from about a week ago. I've listened to this book once before and am on my second round of the series preparing for Book 8 in June. Originally, I downloaded the book to my Sansa Fuze and I SWEAR I heard this scene (it's quite unforgettable). I no longer have a computer with Windows on it & unfortunately Audible doesn't support Linux so I can't redownload it to check if it's just a download format issue. I just compared the print copy using the Look Inside feature on Amazon and sure enough it skips the scene from somewhere on page 241 through most of 245. They are currently researching it & added me to the ticket so I'd get notified when it was fixed. :o(
But, hey, as far as the book as a whole goes... I love it!!! Great series and if you're on #4 already, you're probably hooked. And it just keeps getting better! MUST READ!
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
The fourth in a series of great books. The narration by Davina Porter was outstanding. Diana Gabaldon's attention to detail makes this series so good. Don't be daunted by the length of the book the story just sweeps you away like you are there with Jamie and Claire.
Tell us about yourself!
This is the 4th book in the Outlander series, and this is definitely my favorite next to Oultander itself. A few "secondary" characters become really interesting (Ian, Brianna, Roger), and the change of scenery to the American colonies is excellent. I bought a hard-copy of the book as well.
I love Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series and recommend it to everyone. This is the fourth book in the series, start at the beginning... Absolutely one of the best narrators I've come across. Davina Porter is terrific at all the English and Scottish accents.
I'm a teen; my favorites series are Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and Twilight by Stephene Meyer.
This book series is awesome. Although I've never listened to abridged, I don't feel encouraged to buy them, and if they aren't on here soon, I will be forced to go the library :( I hate when that happens, but this book is awesome. Get the first one, Outsider, and read them in order though. Otherwise it'd be really confusing!!!
Great book/series! This series has rolled me through months of daily commutes. Davina Porter is an outstanding narrator. How she keeps all the character voices is amazing. Please publish the remaining two in unabridged format. Soon!
The reading of this version was very good. The narrator did a great job. Although, I do prefer the "Jaime" voice from the abridged version. Overall, it was still great. I only read all the previous versions, so this was the first book in the series that I listened to the audible version. It was a great experience. I was able to listen all the time. I can't wait for he unabridged version of the next two books!! I won't waste my time on the abridged version, too many details removed.
