The reader is a wonder! I was completely taken in by the story, imagining men and women of all ages, health and nationalities!
This story is so thrilling that it has become a constant companion with my stitching work and my before bed routine.
What a joy to be swept away!
Amazing novel, very realistic, intelligent and enjoyable all through the whole book! I loved the characters, the adventures, the very natural way Diana Gabaldon writes, the whole 18th century scenery, the romance and Claire's narration - especially the way Davina Porter read it. She's done a wonderful job with all the different accents from scottish to french, portraying every charachter uniquely and transmitting all the emotions and thought with only her voice. It was a pleasure to listen to it! I can strongly recommend!:)
A beautifully written book, rich with detail of Scotland in both the 18th and 20th centuries. I am eager to begin the next book in the series.
Davina Porter's reading was artfully done. She does a beautiful job of transitioning from one character to the next.
Already have, on the last one in the series now.
couldn't have been
I have been listening to this series everyday since I downloaded this first book. Love, love, love the books. Davina Porter's narration, performance, is stellar. You would think there is a complete ensemble reading the different parts. This series has everything you could ask for in a historical/sci fi/romance novel.
Just could not get into the story
I really gave it a try, based on the terrific reviews posted. However, this is not for me starts off too boring, no real action and the reader makes me sleepy.
Words cannot express how much I loved this book! The story is amazing! The narrator does such a great job of depicting the characters. I so look forward to the rest of the story in the books that follow. On to book 2 for me! I can't wait to continue!
