Gabaldon is my all time favorite author. I read the Outlander series over and over. All I can say about the one is that she must have been hitting the whiskey that day! The only thing I recognized was JG'S name.
a more substantial story that actually had an ending
He was not the problem
This was a real disappointment after the Outlander series which I had enjoyed so much.
A historical short story, beautifully written and read. This is an interesting footnote for an important character, Lord John, in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. A biting class commentary.
Loved it!! A slight departure from the "big books" of the Outlander series, but absolutely fabulous - just like Diana Gabaldon and Lord John himself!!
I am always impressed with Ms. Gabaldone's work, and this was certainly up to snuff! My favorite part was... well, literally everything. It is such a short piece that there isn't time for unexciting parts to happen! The narrator's take on voices and inflection was superb.
Unfortunately this was the least interesting of all her books. Kinda an afterthought. I believe she was busy elsewhere trying to get her thoughts in order for her prize series "Outlander". My suggestion don't bother.
Why, yes, I am an author
I actually listened to this twice before writing my review. I was a little confused the first time through, but must admit that I was also listening while distracted.
This is a story about Lord John Grey, from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. It was written as a prequel to a series of books specifically about this character. In this tale, Lord John is witness to a murder ... and also invited (somewhat against his will) to join the local Hellfire club. These incidents prove to be related in some rather unexpected ways.
I thought the narrator's voice was lovely, although his characterizations were not terribly varied.
I find the idea of creating a series about this particular character intriguing. This audio book felt like a novella, so there was not as much development as one might prefer. Nevertheless, I found it entertaining.
