Claire because she was so resilient
Loved the narrator
Very entertaining, smartly written, love the mix in genre.
I have read this entire series in paperback, and always wondered how some of the Gaelic words and names were pronounced. Thanks to Davina Porter, I have an answer! She does a great job of bringing the characters alive. I decided to listen to this series on audible in preparation for Diana Gabaldon's next book in the series, and also for the upcoming tv show on Starz next spring!
This is the best series, I have read by far.. There is no other author that can transport you like Diana Gabaldon, and Davina Porter is such a wonderful narrator! I recommend this series to anyone that I can! Since I have read this series I have been on a search to find anything that can even come close to Diana's novels.. I am now rereading them preparing for her eighth book out! Love, love these books!!
without a doubt - time well spent listening!
Clare, but Jamie is equally wonderful - there is no fear and both are ready to do the right thing no matter what (we could use more people in todays world like them)
the character voices are incredible and the book just comes to life so that you feel you are right there with Jamie and Clare
the incredible love between two people and the obstacles to be together
I think Diana is a brilliant writer and Davina is equally brilliant a narrator
Interesting storyline... but a bit OTT with the romance scenes...
I liked learning about Scotland. Not too crazy about the 1700's....
The story line is fabulous. The author can really weave together a story. Great romance!! But so much more!!
Actually for me there were two - when Jamie takes Claire back to the stones and when Jamie is 'detained' by Jonathan Randall and Jamie's sacrifice to make sure Claire was safe. But there was so much there were so many more that were so compelling.
When Jamie told Claire all that Jonathan Randall had done to him, I felt it took so much of him to admit those things, but it was also his ability to do that that helped heal him.
I've listened to the first two books and cannot wait for the third. The narrator is so fabulous on each of these. I also find that the characters are funny - especially Jamie. I wish I was Claire!!
Is it sci-fi, historical fiction or is it a love story? This long (31 hour) book is replete with 18th century Scottish daring-do and combines with a thing between Claire and her love interest, Jamie Frasier. It was so long (how long was it?) that I began using a wee bit of a brogue. I'm on to Gabledon's #2, Dragonfly in Amber.
I am so glad my daughter in law introduced me to this series. I "grab a listen" whenever I a few spare moments, and love the reader's command of the different voices. You won't be disappointed in this book!
Don't listen to the fist book...or you're hooked! The author was inspired and the narrator brings every character to life. Be careful, you'll have to listen to them all!!!!!!!
I've not read the print version but the narrator brings you there in time
she have a wonderful way of bringing the different ppl to life
A story of love, life and survival
I would diffidently recommend this book to all
